The Anatomy Of A Finger Poke

(As a funny side note, when I belonged to the Diabetes Message Board, anytime we typed "finger prick", the board would scramble it so that it said "finger !%@$#" Prick was apparently a bad word, so we opted for finger poke. Oh well....I guess you had to be there.)

Tonight before we sat down to a nutritious, well rounded meal from McDonald's, Brendon performed a finger poke. He looked at me with panic in his eyes and told me he poked his finger and felt the lancet pierce his skin, but no blood was coming out.

"Does that mean I have no blood in my stream?"

Being the sensitive mom that I am, I started laughing at the question because, well, I'm juvenile that way.

I'm still trying to get on Brendon's good side for that one.


  • I love it. Kids always say such funny things! Of course, when they are 14, and it is early early on a school morning and the finger prick results in some pain but no blood, then there is a simple, loud, "CRAP!"

  • Heh. I would have laughed, too. :D

    Olivia can squeeze her finger and get blood without poking it. That's always lots of fun, too.

  • I am a student at UCI and we are conducting a survey as part of a class project to determine the awareness of a new product targeted to the diabetes community. The product is called GLUCO-Z, an all natural compound that was shown in clinical studies at the VA hospital in LA to reduce glucose levels and relieve insulin resistance without side effects. If anyone has heard of this product or has an opinion I would like to know. Thank you.
