|In your situation, if it were possible, I'd want to do it in the hospital. The more your LO is under close observation for the purposes of recording observable symptoms, the more clarity you will get from the test results and the more support you have both for helping to keep the probe in (there are special arm braces used sometimes to keep little ones from pulling probes out) and for dealing with it if it does come out. Is your son's physician/the facility doing the probe familiar with the challenges your situation presents in terms of having him at home?|
