|Some kids have to have a blood test before their operation. The blood test tells the doctors and nurses if you are okay for your operation.
I had to have a blood test. It felt like a pinch, but I held my arm very still - that helped a lot.
I got stickers afterwards!
|Sometimes before surgery you will need an I.V. An I.V. is like a tiny straw and tube connected to a bag of water. Because you can't have anything to eat or drink, the water helps your body not be thirsty.|
