My Assignment - Part One

I was able accomplish part of my long overdue 'assignment' yesterday. It's overdue because I saw the date on the paper-Oct. 8 and it's already Nov. 6 today! haha. The hubby accompanied me to Medical City in Pasig at 9AM-after my shift. We were suppose to go to St. Lukes but I preferred Medical City instead because of the good service I experienced when I gave birth to *Lj* almost two years ago. I was very nervous because I already knew they need blood for their tests. When my number was called, I complain to the hubby and said, "Ang bilis naman tawagin yung number ko!" Then he said, "Good luck". Hell-oh! Good luck is not right word. The nurse asked me to sit down and then I saw sterilized needles, cotton balls, tubes and all sorts on my left. I asked couple of questions to the nurse about the paper she gave me while she prepares everything. I got really nervous when she tied a rubber thing in my arm. I asked her, "Marami ba kelangan?" and she answered, "Konti lang, mga isang tube lang." WTF?!! One tube is not little Hell-oh! That's a lot! At that point, there's nothing I can do but to just close my eyes. Believe me, the next 60 seconds was not pleasant. I cannot even look at the needle. I waited and waited. That was the longest 60 seconds promise. They said I can get the results after 5 hours but we decided to go just back next week because I still need other test which is scheduled on Monday morning. So my ass will be back there on Monday early morning with the hubby. I hope it's nothing serious.

~ Ouch! I hate needles... ~

Lizzz, hope the tests come out fine. I am not afraid of needles but one time I had a medical assistant (who looks new to the job) draw blood from me and he couldn't find my veins and he had to prick my arm around 5 times before he got it right. I didn't say anything na lang or complain about him because he was filipino and he needed experience to be better I guess.

Let's pray it's nothing serious. But it's good that they're doing all these tests para sure, di ba?

Anyways, yeah, I hate needles too, but I guess nasanay na rin ako when I was pregnant. One time they literally took 8 tube samples of my blood. I always look the other way.

Hang in there!

@ kRisTiNe ~ Yup! masasanay nga tayo lalo na pag pregnant. Pero 8 tubes? hindi ko ata kaya yon! hehe. Thanks!
