i wish i would have started doing the blood draws myself alot sooner than i had. i would drive 45 min to get it done. after the 2nd and third time i could not beleive i waited as long as i did, because it was so easy. it took maddie about a good 6 months though to get used to the priking when i started doing it. then eventually she would just start sticking out her finger for me to do it and get it over with ;-) the first month… she would cry cry!!! so be prepared for that. good luck!
