The other thread got me thinking about the alcohol wipe thing. We sort of have a few bad habits going already. One of them being that we don't wipe off the finger when we test and we rarely wipe off the place where we are injecting (but we do wipe off the vile before we draw it up so at least we get some credit ). But I've been wondering if this is absolutely necessary. Usually Ava is screaming by the time she realizes what is going on, so I'm just trying to get everything over with as fast as possible. Our CDE told us it would be best if we did it but that it wouldn't be the end of the world if we forgot.
