"I don't drink...
(NT) I don't either, but it would'nt take much to pop a few.
Maybe it's part of a new medical Gestapo plan!
J called and asked for an ugly one You must have enjoyed the blood draws too much with the other one
Yeah, the other one was pretty nice...
She and her husband have a Harley Road King like my sons. Wants to get her own because of the gas prices. Every weekend its like a Harley pit stop here. May as well have them during the week too.
you get your Harley ride real soon:) When you do have fun:)
Make her laugh....
so you can check her eye teeth. She may be getting a little extra for herself.
Also lay a cross nearby where she can't miss it and check the reaction. Have someone sharpen a few reduced broom sticks to also lay around for her reaction.
Gee John. I don't want to make her nervous..
Remember, shes the one sticking me. Don't worry I'm watching how much she takes out. One tube and thats it. Same size as the other one had.
But did she ...
.... hit the vein without trouble or excruciating pain?
That's always a plus!
As long as the venipuncture goes well, I wouldn't care if he/she looked like The Hulk.
(But if if he/she looked like bin Laden, I would feel a tad edgey!:-) )
How did you keep a straight face? (Betcha had a nice smile.) I hope her name is not Leech.

Yes, she got the vein OK & No pain.
As a matter of fact Angeline, she did alright. Some of them stick the needle in there and wiggle it all around till something comes out.
Don't remember smiling. To busy keeping my eye on her. Doggone she was tall. At least 6ft 5in. I'm not kidding about this. Its true. Sure looked like Dracula to me.
Being that you're in Boston I must ask....
...Was it Lilith Crane?
Had to look her up Josh.
Cheers to you too. Never been in there.
And no, I'm not in Boston, thank the good lord for that. About 25 miles north of Beantown out of harms way, but we do get occasional flack out of there.
LOL, the food is actually pretty good
And the place doesn't look at all like the TV bar on the inside. It's good fun if you're in the neighborhood.
Reminds me of Halloween one year ...
Back before I sold my practice and 'went corporate' a few years ago the office nurses did all the phlebotomy work.
One year at Halloween they both dressed up as vampires, complete with black outfits, white faces, fake fangs and capes. I hope they didn't scare any of the kids that day!
When I point patients toward the lab I frequently tell them they need to go visit the vampires.
What a Happy Surprise this noon....
My Doc called and the series of blood work up, taken 2 weeks ago all came back negative. Took me off coumadin today. Now, if I can just get rid of some of these other pills. Anyway, good bye Dracula. Good, good.
WOW!!! That is....
really good news:) No more blood suckers
I have to stay on coumadin for life so I don't get the reprieve:( My INR has been going up and down so often I am driving the clinc nuts It had been like 1.6 then in 2 weeks went up to 2.5, then it went back down to 1.4, Now my last one on 4/27 was 4.6:( The only good thing about that was I got to eat salads and all the veggies in the chinese food we went out for:) I am so happy for you:) Hugs:)
Boy, your INR numbers
sure bounce around a lot Sue...Mine never went above 2.5 or below 1.7 They told me back in Oct. I would probably be on the coumadin at least 6 months. The original blood tests were border line anyway. 13 and below is negative. 14 and above is positive. I was bearly a 14. Whatever all that is, I don't know, but this time I tested below 14. These are different tests than the weekly ones. Code numbers are: QIBA, ACAP, CK, ALDO, ESR.
I hope you are able to get yours under control and it stays between 2 & 5 if thats your numbers.
George....Thanks Evie and Angeline
(NT) Great news George!
