We managed to get the blood with only a few tears (Mostly from us). He forgave us quickly, and we have shipped it back, anxious to hear that his levels have lowered.
We went with the mint green lancet as well, and it was much easier than I worked it up to be. Unfortunately, after using one to test off his foot to make sure we were doing it right, and one that we used on him, we are forced to now figure out the pink ones if they need it again, as we only got a couple green ones! haha. Ahh well, life of a mom right
