good luck and congrats…also little tibet for doing the blood dots at home. you cant use the first drop of blood that comes off the finger (i dotn know why) u have to wipe it off or let it fall but not on the card. and as u do place the blood in the cricles u cant let there fingers actually touch the card . it messes up the test and they cant get a level. my dr recommends that u poke the side of the finger not to close to the pad. the pads of ur fingers are to sensitve , they bleed very easy but they hurt and it takes longer to heal and they bruise. on the side of ur finger u wont even feel afterwords. there alittle tougher. im sure ur dr already told u this. mine didnt rigth away so i thought id share! hope it helps!! good luck again!
