Well today I went to the Hospital to give some blood for tests and the adventure begins.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU ARE CONSTANTINA OR UNCOMFORTABLE READING STUFF ABOUT BLOOD. DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER OR I CAN NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF YOU PASS OUT ON THE CHAIR. 👿
It was the fifth or sixth most coldest day of my life… oh who am I kidding that’s from ‘Brother Bear’ sorry guys got a little confused there. 😀
OK OK I know that you are in agony to read my story so. I woke-up as normal, had breakfast and at around 08.30, yes thats in the morning, I was on my way to the University Health Service so that they can get some blood to run some tests. Standard procedure as they call it. Well I can tell you that there was nothing standard about it.
At around 09.05 I arrived at the Health Service and waited for my turn so that the Nurse could do her job. The monitor beeps and I leave to go the Nurse’s office. After arriving there, she had a thing tied at my left arm so that she can take some blood. And then she had it on my right arm. She removes it and says. ‘It seams that your veins are very thin could you go to the Hallamshire Hospital because there they can use thinner syringe’. Well I left and went to Hallamshire Hospital arriving there at 10.00. There was a queue as in all Hospitals so I took a number and sat down waiting for my turn. I got number 82 by the way and the number on the screen was 60. It took the half an hour to rich number 82 but I am not complaining.
Approaching the Nurse I sat on the chair and she strapped that thing again around my right arm. She puts the syringe in and blood stats pumping out, she fills one tube (those small testing tubes) and a second. When she puts the third on guess what happens? NO BLOOD!!! Yes you read right no blood is coming out of my veins. Well she did gave her best trying to make blood come out but it seams that it run out. The tank was empty. Finally she manage to take a few drops and I was released.
Thats the end of the story. The ethical teaching of the story is be careful not to need doctors. I am just kidding.
Ciao Everybody. 😉
