Hope all goes well for you. As lotty says for her injection they'll put on some 'magic cream' which is supposed to numb the area - this has to be left on for about half an hour or so.
As for taking a urine sample - I know when my daughter was in hospital when she was younger and in nappies - they stick on a little kind of bag to catch the urine and replace the nappy over the top - it doesn't always work though and I think it depends what kind of urine sample it is - if it has to be a sterile sample then I think they can't do it this way.
Take care, good luck,

Blood tests....no cream offered for us I'm afraid. Didn't even know she could have any till I read previous posts. Generally held down, screaming, kicking, fighting ..... Dreadful! Glad they are over with as they kept having to be repeated
Hope it all goes ok for you

For us it is more stressful trying to keep the cream on for half an hour than just pinning him down and getting the blood.
