I wasn't stressed about this until the nurse called to talk to me again today. I wasn't home. I just got the message and needed to vent.
Alex poked himself at school with another kids blood sugar testing kit. The kit wasn't properly closed, and Alex started messing around with it...hence, the poke.
The nurse called and told me she had washed Alex's finger really well and the bleeding had stopped. She had also called the other kid's Mom and asked if there were any kind of issues that could be transmitted from her child. The Mom said "no" and that her child had been tested for all kinds of things because of his blood sugar issue. She also offered to get her child tested again and to copy all of his paper work for me.
What was I to do? My first response, "Well, it's done now." If there was something dangerous transmitted, there was nothing I could do about it. Kids screw around with stuff and get hurt...it's gunna happen.
Now that the nurse has called back and the shock has worn off, I am a little more concerned. Guess I will have to see what Nurse Petner says tomorrow. Sleep may not come easily tonight.
