Dracula and Soup…
Today was blood day! Whoo hoo!
The nurse is pretty good at taking bloods even though she’s a bit weird. The last time I was in to see her I refused to be weighed so…. This visit she said I look like I have lost weight! Lol! No way! I guess she is just trying to be nice. Seriously I don’t much like anyone at my doctor’s office including the doctor! I'm not a hum-bug I just don’t think they are very nice or helpful, except one of the reception girls… she is very friendly and pleasant!
Adele “Someone Like You” just on….. WOW! That that was intense!
When I was in school to be a paramedic we had to use each other to practice on starting an IV on. Now… the girl that was my partner in class in this wonderful and glorious event was tiny. We always volunteered her to be a patient in lifting practices!
Anyway she was a small person, like a little doll… I like small people by the way! no issue there, I'm short too but it just meant that she was going to have small veins to match the rest of her… my veins on the other hand you could hit from across the room! I have great veins! They pop up and don’t roll!
So my partner was a bit nervous. I wasn’t as nervous as I should have been especially since I went first. That is to be the patient!
She started on my hand… right hand. Now seriously my veins stand out about a foot! You could start an IV on me with a straw!
Stick… (She was shaking) no vein… she starts to prod around looking for a vein that looked like Everest! In it… through it… blown vein! Ouch!
Then to the left! Yes I am stupid!
Second verse same as the first!
Well pretty much! At this point I'm bleeding everywhere! It’s starting to look like a “scene” of something! No joke! We had these blue sheet things to cover the tables and the one for our table was red and not alone as we needed more to soak up the overflow!!!! She blew the vein on the left hand too then tried once on my arm before she gave up and my near bleeding to death experience was over!
She was too traumatized to let me get to have a turn at starting an IV line on her :~( awww poor thing she was so upset!
Now the soup part…
I made chicken and veg soup today and this is a photo of it! :~)
I rambled in Paint Shop Pro and also in my mind!
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
