I just sat in the hallway and sobbed, because she was screaming her head off and it was the most horrid thing in the entire world.

So I totally feel your pain. I'm really not looking forward to the 2-month appointment.
ohhhh....I know that pain as well. when remy was admitted to the hospital at just 4 days old the dr. took blood from a vein in his little hand. it took a good full 5 minutes for her to get the amount she needed. she said baby blood is extremely thick and flows slow. I sobbed along with him the whole 5 excruciating minutes and wanted to deck the dr.
