Out of the Blue

In spite of making an appointment almost a year in advance for my annual physical next week, a morning spot was not available, and I will be seeing the doctor in the early afternoon. Since one is supposed to fast before giving blood to be tested, I made a separate appointment to for a blood draw this morning so I wouldn't have to wait until the afternoon to eat. This makes me wonder why it isn't done this way always, as there's a good chance the doctor will have the results of my tests to discuss with me when I see him, which makes more sense than the rushed "everything seems okay" phone conversation we usually have following seeing him. I guess it's not as practical for most people to do that as for me, since the doctor is about five minutes away from here. Anyway, MrsBlue and I both went to give blood, and actually specified the nurse we wanted to see, which led to us catching a dirty look from the one we call "the butcher" we were seeking to avoid. I have a feeling the next time one of us is stuck with her, we're really going to be stuck.

Sticking a needle into a persons vein is an art form/skill that only Nurses have. Do not let a doctor ever put a needle in you. They suck at it and your best Dr's will admit that. It is odd that you had to avoid a certain nurse due to her inability to do this right. I have only had one bad needle stick and that was from an anesthesiologist (the dr not the nurse) doing the IV and he totally missed the vein the first time.

Learned/Re-learned my lesson that day. Of course what made it worse that I had fasted the day before since I was having surgery. Ick.
