If my memory is correct, A.J had 14 little pricks in his back and that was not all of it. Then you have to wait for 30-45 minutes.. Seems like forever. Then if they react, they told me to follow up in 3 years to do another round of tests..

Here's a picture from google.. It gives you an idea..

See why I rather do the blood test.. I just need to bring him to the lab and get it drawn.. I just hate the fact I have to do it..
