Surgery slated for Monday. Finally. Lets hope the lab tests get to them in time! They should, but with my luck...
So here's the deal. I go in & sit & wait my turn. No big deal, expected that & was actually lucky to be only the 8th person in line.
They call me in about 45 mins later. We discuss how it's to be paid for, where it's to go, etc.
Nurse: Take a seat there.
Me: Oh, the torture chair!
I sit. I slide. I sit, I slide, I sit, I slide....guess you can tell this chair is made of hard plastic & dips downwards. I think they manufactured it on purpose to do that.
Nurse: Which arm?
Me: Doesn't matter. Neither one will work for you.
Me: Because no one can find my veins & IF they do, you won't get anything anyhow. Can I just please work behind the desk till I get a paper cut, then you can get my blood?
Nurse then straps a rubber thing around my arm, tightly. "Now make a fist"....methinks ohhhhh, sure baby, I can do that.....oh, wait, you don't mean that I can punch you do you?
No comment from nurse because she can't read my mind. Thank goodness. I'd might be in jail.
OK, now a needle is being stabbed into my arm -- OUCH!!! Did I say ouch? Yes, OUCH!! hmmmm....just very little blood, very little. Making little tiny dots up the clear tube. Not enough for an ant.
Me: I told you so! You're going to do my hand now aren't you :-(
Me: Oh that will hurt!!! And it does. And it brings tears to my eyes.
Nurse: You aren't a good candidate for giving blood.
Me in my mind again: No sjit Sherlock, what gives you that clue??
Nurse: Ok, we're done now, you can go.
Me: Thank you for a great time! Now I can scare everyone sitting out in the lobby! Yay! Because I have two big bandages on me & tears in my eyes! I should have sat back down to gather all the looks I could gather >:-) But I didn't.....
Instead, I went to Big Lots to get bandaids. I walked out of Big Lots, with a box of bandaids, a new fan cooler for my computer because the two others are dying that I've had for a million years & a ----- FINALLY, a cell phone holder for my vehicles!! YAY! I've been needing one for awhile now, but my phone is big & all the holders I'd come across were too small. And around $30 bucks, which to me is insane. So I found one for $8 dollar bucks. Yay to me!
Then I went to Scholtzskys for a bandaid sandwich.
Got back, ate the sandwich, but still feel nauseated. So I put laundry in the washing machine. My arm hurts & is bruising. Now I know how those tomatoes feel in that TV commercial....ouch.
Oh & did I mention that I got a paper cut at Big Lots??? hmmmm....
Boy, I can't wait to see how I feel on Monday!!!!
My arm looks weird at this angle. I'm pretty sure that's all that is wrong with it in this photo though.
Yummy, a Schlotzsky Band-Aid!
Objects are closer than they appear. My luck. Got stuck behind a garbage truck. Which seemed to have some kind of magnetic attraction because as he was speeding up, I was too - so I could simply stay behind him & enjoy the smells???
Gee, another object. Again, closer than it appears. I speed up to pass this one! Wanted to beat it to the red light!
Not my sofa. Not my dog that did that. Thank goodness....not on my watch either ;-}
