And so, I finally could muster some use of my hands today after a near freak out ordeal at the clinic yesterday. For those who are not aware, I had to take a blood test to ascertain my immunity levels before getting any necessary immunizations done before I could commence work.
I could vividly recall how sweat poured out of me when the nurse told me that my vein(s) does not seem to cooperate with letting the blood out into the test tube. And so, my left hand was spared. To my annoyance, blood from the right hand had to be taken. That annoyance gave way to sheer panic when she told me that in the event of unsuccessful blood taking, the doctor will take over. However, the doctor is not confident of drawing blood. I just went… OMG.
Relief flooded me when I see blood rushing out of the vein on my right hand and into the test tube. I am so thankful that I would not be left at the mercy of the doctor.
After that, everything went well, except that I have to start losing weight. Damn.
