Not dead!

Just wanted my fans to know that I am not dead...just busy!

Work is good...I am loving it so far! Big news today is that I successfully took blood from a patient's arm first time! I was quite proud of myself because I was really nervous about learning to do that. Now that the first hurdle is cleared, I just need to practice!

Hope everyone is doing well!

Did the patient know that they were your guninea pig? Just kidding :)

Congatulations on...uhmm...drawing blood. Sounded better in my head.

though I know that it's impossible for nurses to be able to draw blood like a pro without practice, man - I hate to be the practice. I prefer thinking to myself that the nurse who is doing my blood has done it for centuries. she may have even invented blood taking. she certainly graduated at the top of her class and has won numerous awards and is even called on to take blood from people with extremely crappy veins. if I continue to think about it in that way, it just seems...better.

congrats. that reminds me that i still need to have some blood drawn.. after being poked three times at the drs office, they finally gave into my pleas to let me go to a lab!

why doesn't anyone believe me when i tell them i have deep, skinny, shriveled veins that hide whenever i even LOOK at the blue rubber band thing..

instead they all get giddy at the challenge.

Nice to know you're not dead. The sight of blood makes me nervous. Nice job!
