one more night

Sounds like the night went ok, they were able to get the blood from J.J. with finger pokes. He doesn't love that but his vein must be getting sore because they could only use his right arm for blood tests since the IV was in the left arm.

They have succeeded in getting J.J.'s calcium levels up to 1 but now they have decided to keep him another night to make sure that he can maintain that level with the oral supplements. The calcium infusions that they've been giving him through IV act really quickly but also leave the system quickly. He started the oral supplements last night at 8 and it takes 24-48 hrs for them to kick in.
