I'm Alive!

Well, I'm sure all of you loyal readers will be relieved to know that I did indeed make it through the glucose test with no problems, and in fact it was not tramatic at all, proving once again that your mind can really psyche you out by only concentrating on the worst case scenario. There were a man and a woman working at the lab today. The woman was quite skillful; the man not so much. Of course it would happen that he drew my blood 3 out of the 4 times, but while he inflicted more pain, he still got the samples with no problems. They both were able to even got a sample out of my bad right arm, so it turns out that even scarred veins heal themselves! Who knew?! I guess it has been over 5 years since that disasterous time while pregnant with Caleb when the techs could not get any blood out of that arm, and I have not let anyone try since then, so I haven't had any new data to go by. What a relief to have that over and done with! I felt fine throughout the test. Now we just wait for the results.

I'm happy to hear things went well. Giving blood -- ok anything with needles -- ranks right up there as my least favorite thing in life.

The nurses ruined the veins in my left arm this last hospital stay...checking my blood count so many times. They finally couldn't get any more either! I hadn't heard of that happening!
Oh, and by the way, trust me, I'm plenty LARGE, my dear. That picture was sort of a random optical illusion. People even ask me if I'm having twins!
