*I'm feeling a little faint!

Can you say 12 I repeat 12 vials of blood?!

*That is how many tubes of blood they stole from my body yesterday. Remember a while back when I had a stroke scare? Well I am going through a series of tests to see why I have this weird numbness down my left arm and so we are beginning with blood tests. The nurse said ..."Uh are you aware of how much blood we are taking today?...You're gonna want to lay down for this one!" So I was laying on a bed for what seemed like forever and she tried to keep me alert so I didn't pass out. Today I was still very weak and light headed. It took a good 24 hours to feel back to normal.. but it's all good now.

I don't think I could have done that. I had to have 5 done for certain testing on a certain day of the month a few months back and between everything I about passed out and I usually don't. After a few juices and sitting there awhile I thought I was going to be sick, so I hurried and left and got the kids in the car cause I thought if I waited any longer I wouldn't make it home! I did have to lay on the couch awhile after that! All the kids kept asking was if they could have a drink of my juice. Not a good idea to bring them especially when you don't want to be bumped. A guy nurse came in to distract them for a few minutes. Fun stuff. Hope everything comes back with good news or answers for you.
