When the nurse told me she was taking blood from my fingertip instead of my arm…

After I finally gave in & let the nurse prick my finger for blood…

    Honestly, it used to hurt more from that stupid finger prick than a full arm blood draw. My doctor’s office finally changed lancets, so it’s much better now.

      They were all excited about being able to do bloodwork right at the doctor’s office now instead of sending me to the hospital a week before, but they *never* mentioned this was how they were going to do it. I almost walked out, I swear. :oopsiedaisy

      And next year, I’m doing the hospital arm thing. That never hurts. My finger throbbed for a week! :poopoo

      Oh, no, that would be awful. I don’t know how you do it. The nurse told me, “It’s no worse than a paper cut.” And I went all bulgy-eyed :kittyquestion because I HATE paper cuts. They’re the worst! :runkitty

      You’re adopting two new kitties?! Oh, how wonderful! Bless you. :kittyeyes And they will be blessings, believe me, even if they sometimes do this: :runkitty

      Drawing blood from the back of the hand? WHAT?! No, no, no. Who comes up with this stuff? I’ve had IVs on the back of my hand & hate it. :crykitty
