I agree that it's awful that our kids have to endure any kind of pain whatsoever! But as even you stated in an earlier post, there are other lancing devices out there, such as the Multiclix, that a lot of our children have used without any pain. While I agree that the OP has a right to be angry that they have purchased a very expensive product that is now no longer available, I was just a little confused by how upset the OP was over the fact that her daughter wouldn't be able to use this product any more. No offense - I just read it as being, for lack of a better word, a bit theatrical. It is, after all, just a lancing device.
