What can we do afterwards? ?

My little brother has to get a blood test. He asked me to go with him, and my mother. What can I do during the blood test to comfort him, and afterwards to brighten his day?

    A blood test takes about 15 seconds and for a brief second it feels like a pinprick.  Making a big deal out of it just makes it worse.  If you want to help, coach him to close his eyes, relax and not look at anything the technician is doing.  If he does this he will hardly notice anything is even going on.
