So proud of my little girl :)

well pippa has been for her bloods and i am so proud of her, it took four (thought it was 3 but there are 4 holes) goes to get the blood, she just sat on my knee and let them get on. she got a bit grumpy by the 4th go but think she was sick of sitting still and being held and having her arm squeezed. my colleague felt bad about it taking so many goes but at least it's done now. pippa got a sticker for being good and we went to hotel chocolate and bought some chocolate buttons, have to hide them from dh as he's totally against chocolate but i think she deserved a treat. she started going oww and holding her hand on the train home so think the magic cream is wearing of, had to take her plaster of as she was pulling at it and she has got a cracker of a bruise. was dreading it but can't believe how well she coped with it.

leeds general infirmary, i take bloods myself and know that when it's done right it should work as it did for pippa, with her not knowing it's happened. unfortunately it doesn't always work like that, which is why i'm glad i know people who try to make it as nice for children as possible. it's a very hard job both mentally and physically but can be very rewarding

it works for most children but not all i guess you've tried both types as sometimes one will work and one won't , think it works for something like 98% of people

Oh well done Pippa - what a brave wee girl. Sounds like she had a really good experience - wish we'd had the same.
