unsuccessful blood draw.....no blood to give??
yeah...today was my annual physical....they needed to draw 8 tubes of blood...3 different nurses or phlebotomists tried....no blood ever came out of any vein they tried. NOW they are sending me to the LAB...when asked what they could do differently they did not know. Gee...what happens if they can't get any blood to come out either? I mean they tried multiple areas to stick me...heat....I think personally I was dehydrated...so that did not help. I did not even SEE the veins in my arms I normally see. SO now I get to fast and go through it all again in about a week!
My son was in the ER last night .....both of us got little sleep to say the least.
Today is so much like fall though....I LOVE this weather!
