Peace, they'll test you for whatever you want, but I always go for a lot at the same time if they're going to stick you anyway. Vit D, calcium, iron and potassium are all good to have checked periodically. As for how much blood they take, I know for me, it's around 2-4 vials for the above but I'm not sure how much it is from kids since I haven't had them tested.
ASF, thanks for the reminder that I want to check the kids for a couple of things and I need to be checked soon too, esp for iron.
Also, just an FYI, we'll be starting up S2's vaccinations again (we're selective/delayed) and will be getting MMR. Anyone want to come hang out with us in the hopes that something will shed? (I'm thinking ASF had said she wanted to, so I thought I'd put it out there.)
