It’s a metaphor, don’t panic. His blood is normal colored, but hard to get to, it turns out. The pictures below were taken during the first attempt to draw blood. We didn’t get enough, so now we are waiting while they find a nurse who can draw blood from his ankles. I think it’s because the lady we just had was wearing an “I Love Dook” pin (she spelled it differently). He didn’t trust her with his blood.
This blood will be used to find out if he has any chromosomal abnormalities, and to do some DNA testing (for when we go on the Maury show). In reality, they will just be to find any other potential problems that could show up in a DNA test. Now he’s got some little ankle warmers on, getting ready for round 2.
