Bastian has to have loads of blood tests. They are looking for haemoglobin and full blood count. Thyroid function, urea and electrolytes, serum creatine kinase, plasma amino acids, chromosome analysis and search for Fragile X. Also urine tests for amino acids and organic acids. Getting urine off B is a real challenge. He absolutely does not pee on demand. I have to stick this bag thingy over his credentials and put a nappy on. Most of the time they leak and you have to do it again. So annoying. And then you have to squeeze the wee out of the bag and into a tiny pot.
