My first Appointment

Well...we didn't get the answers we wanted today, but oh well. Today was registration, paperwork, and appt. scheduling. They also took 4 vials of blood and a pee test. However, because we couldn't determine how far I am, we got the lady to approve us for an early ultrasound! It's next Tuesday at 1. Hope we get some answers. Overall, it went well. I learned I will be spending most of my life at the hospital with appointments galore. I HATE doctors, but I guess this is going to fix that. I also HATE getting my blood taken because I have very deep veins you see. Every time means numorous stabs and torment. Well...today I met Pearl, a little old Filipino lady that has been doing this since before I was born. She was patient and got it on the first go. She took care of me. I hugged her and told her to please be here always. I have many more blood drawings to go...

For your sake, I hope that lady is there for you everytime you have to get blood work. I remember the days when you were tormented. :-(
