Personal best...

I hope it's okay to use here.

Made a trip to the hematologist today, so I knew I would be poked and prodded. Previously the highest number of vials that I have given up at any one time was, oh say, less than ten.

Today? TWENTY-ONE!

I walked out of the vampires' den with neon green elastic bandages on my left elbow, and both hands. The big and burly (and tattooed) blood sucker was an expert with a needle, it was my veins which were uncooperative. When I left their cave, they said, "Well, it looks like the doctor ordered every possible test she might need, but just in case, show her the color (green tape) we put all over your arms, and tell her we said not to even think about sending you back today for more."

Now I'm sitting here thinking to myself, "Damn! Why didn't I take my camera?" I would have liked to have a picture of that basketful of vials as a monument to this accomplishment...but not enough to go do it again any time soon!

  2. Yeah, I know. I'm not even sure what they were all for! Hope the insurance covers it all.
