CW: blood ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿฉธ ๐Ÿ˜ฑ 

What happened yesterday Saturday:
They took my blood! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

๐Ÿ˜ฑ Aaaaaaaaaaah!!!
(Screaming like Macaulay Culkin.)

The nice lady also gave me a little cut in my arm and watched me bleed. ๐Ÿ˜ณโ‰๏ธ It's a test called Bleed Time.

I made sure to let her know what a chicken I am. It sounded like torture when she first told me what was gonna happen. Nah, she was cool. ๐Ÿ‘

I didn't pass out. ๐Ÿ˜…

Yeah. That's a picture of all the blood she extracted. It's a miracle i didn't faint.

I haven't had that many test tubes of blood taken since I was a kid. I thought they did more tests per sample these days.

I never had the bleed time test, though, as far as I remember.

@TMakarios
Fortunately the lady who did the extraction had light* hands. Yeah, 6 seems a lot. In my mind I'm like, "Oh my precious blood!"

@evelynyap why are they testing your blood? I hope all is okay. Sorry if I missed the post that explained.

Well, my new* doctor doesn't yet know what's wrong, what's causing my leg complaint. Been to 2 doctors before her, and they did NOTHING. Plus I got a couple of pre-existing conditions and haven't been to any doctor in 2 years. So she ordered a battery of tests. Like trying to solve a puzzle. Which I think is good, instead of her just treating my leg issue (that could* just be 1 sign of a more serious problem elsewhere).

@evelynyap Got it. I'll pray about this tomorrow morning during my quiet time.

@evelynyap They should have taken leg blood surely? ๐Ÿ˜‹

@Baggypants
Well ๐Ÿคช by then the blood that was in the leg have traveled around and gotten to my arm. ๐Ÿ˜…
