      Kelly I recently got one of these needles so I could give blood for allergy test at the doctors. This was before we started treatments on our son. I had asked the nurse, “wow are those needles that small, or are you just that good.” When we give them to Finn at night he is in REM sleep at that point. He will jump up a second but never wakes. He could be feeling the small pinch or perhaps the cool feeling of the medication entering his body. I’ still don’t love to do this but we know its the best way we can help him at this point.
