I went to the doctor yesterday about the constant headaches. She poked and prodded and tested and then sent me off to the blood testers. That did not go well.
First, he couldn't find my veins. This happens every time. I have invisble veins. Then, when he eventually did get a vein (after me having my arm in a compression strap for ten minutes), the needle didn't go in quite right, so it started bleeding outside the wound (that hasn't happened before). The blood wasn't running normally into the tubes, either - it was spurting and bubbling like a gravel siphon line with air in it (yes, I made that comparison). Then, on the third vial, the needle slipped out of the vein. Blood was now running down my arm to my wrist and it really stung, but blood was also still going into the vials, so we kept on plugging. Eventually, all four vials were filled, his hands were shaking like a vibrato solo and I was a bit of a mess.
I don't mind needles at all, but that wasn't fun. And my arm was so achy even three hours later than my mum had to drive me to uni because I couldn't lift my left arm to the wheel properly, or operate the handbrake (the driver's seat is on the right here, so the handbrake is on the driver's left).
This makes me curious - Americans, what order do the pedal go in, from left to right, for you guys? Ours go clutch, brake, accelerator, although our car is an auto, so no clutch, just a foot rest.
It would be so trippy to visit a country where I had to drive on the right. Do your roundabouts go anti-clockwise? Cos that's wierd too.
I'm enjoying Twilight again. Don't hate me.
Last night, I was eating a meat pie (yep, being vegan is not easy in this house) and made the mistake of offering a gravy-covered finger to Hyde to lick. In his blindness (he's probably 99% blind, if not more) and his rapture at the smell, he didn't lick. He bit. It hurt. Not his fault in the slightest, though - I should have remembered how happy they get about meat pie. Stupid me. Still hurts, though. :p
Darcy tried to lick the wound better today. He's a little sweetheart. They all are. Love for all my babies. :D
