I’m still not sure why you can’t use Emla for the first access. Emily’s nurse insisted upon it.

Do you have the number for your home care nurse? You can call them & ask them what to do about it. Since Kevin is such a trooper maybe he won’t need the Emla. Make sure you tell him that the first time might be a little more rough because it’s new & the area is tender.

I think most people keep the Emla on for about 30-60 minutes. Emily is more sensitive & needs it on for 1 1/2-2 hours.

Good luck.
