We've finally made the decision to get my boys tested for celiac disease as their sister has tested positive. They're 7 and 3 and I'm so so worried how they'll react to a blood test :unsure:

I had blood tests and allergy skin tests done when I was a child. I don't remember being particularly upset by any of it, although the allergy skin tests on my back weren't much fun. Mom told me it would be quick, would hurt a little sort of like getting pinched, and that once it was done I could have a piece of candy if I was good and held still. I would put up with a lot for candy! :lol: The pediatricians office always had big basket of Dum Dum lollipops and if I was lucky I would find a butterscotch one! If your Dr. office doesn't have candy, put a favorite treat in your purse for each kid. Trust me, the candy was huge. Nothing hurts as badly when you have a lollipop. Mom also went into the room with me and if she was allowed, she held my hand. That was really important, having her in the room.

Good luck :) I'm a full grown adult and would still do anything for candy :lol:

Lol They've been booked in for Wed morning. Mine and hubby tested neg, but obviously that doesn't mean the boys will. Fingers crossed they do. I assume they would at least have the gene too...
