This morning I arrived at the lab at 5:45 a.m. I was shocked to see that the waiting room was jam packed all but 2 seats were taken. My appointment was for 6:00 a.m. but I didn't get called until around 6:30 a.m. The tech took four vials of blood then gave me the glucose drink.
I was kind of thirsty, so at first it was ok, until I got brain freeze, OUCH. I had to force myself to drink the last ounce or so. I'm just not a morning eater and I wanted to be home in bed, not in a cold office drinking sugar blasted soda water. After finishing the drink I needed to wait another half hour for my next draw. No problems there.
While waiting for my third draw I started to feel really nauseous and tired. The waiting room was standing room only but a really nice guy offered me his seat. Thank goodness. By the time they did my third draw I was feeling a lot better. The last hour of waiting wasn't as bad as I anticipated. I started playing games on my cell phone and read a few articles in a magazine. I was out of there by 9:00 a.m.
We'll see what the results show. Next procedure, HSG on Tuesday. Bracing myself for more pain. My arms are looking beastie with all the blood draws I've taken this week.
