Our doctor called us yesterday morning to tell us the test was negative. We were 100% sure it would but it was still nice to hear that!
We had to do the test at the hospital. We basically had to check in to the hosptital too! Lots of paperwork.
So, they basically needed to measure Jocelyn's sweat. Sounds pretty easy right!? If you are an adult! Not so much with a squirming, already cautious of people besides mom and dad, 10 month old!
Here they put sensors on her to "make her sweat"....they had to tape them on so she wouldn't try and take them off. The alarm only went off once because she moved too much!
I brought a blanket and a jacket but the nurse said it didn't matter how hot she was. It only matter if she was hydrated!
Waiting to see if we got enough sweat. This test takes 45 minutes at least. Oh and the nurse says, "Sometimes this doesn't always work with kids!" Awesome! But thankfully we did get enough to test for Jocelyn the first time.
The blue stuff is her sweat. They color it so they can see if the device actually collected anything!
