Dh forgot the pregnancy test in his excitement over getting such an awesome deal on a car he wants to flip. I forgave him when he promised Joe's crab shack after the blood tests:-)
I get to the lab, I ask the lady if progesterone is on there, she looks and says no, but if I want to I can carry the papers upstairs and have them order that test. She calls and I head up, they call it in to my doctor who is at the main office, she sends it right away. I go back down.
Dh explains to the lab tech that I had a panic attack and was passing out etc at my last test, so straight to the bed I go. She explains that one test is six vials of blood and its the largest and most are 2 vials, a few are just one. She searches my right arm for a Vein..... she searches my left arm, goes back to the right and settles on the left. I am telling ya I think my veins packed up and moved out when they heard 6 vials of blood for one test. This poor lady (I am at this time concerned about her because she literally is stressing out over not finding veins, I guess she didn't hear the door slam behind them as they ran out) she gets the biggest vein, slides the needle in, all is good, when gets three vials, I feel burning, she notices the vein is growing an knot, she quick gets two more and gently slides the needle out. Great, a knot has grown, my arm is throbbing, it hurts tmi move it, and a bruise is starting. She does the whole pressure and massage to try to keep it from getting bad.
On to the right arm. She finds a vein she is happy with. The needle goes in and the vein rolls..... and rolls and rolls and rolls.
I called it quits, I will go back on Friday and retry. My veins are always hard to find and they always roll.
It suckity suck sucks .....
Does anyone want to give me a cookie? :-)
