So, got to my appointment early, had nothing to eat after 11 p.m last night
and only 1 tsp of water with a pill this morning, at 4a.m. So my appointment
time was for 9 a.m and well I was there at 8:40 a.m...finally got called back at 10 a.m
And waited another 25 minutes and finally the come over to start an IV, first two tries the
vein blows, third time missed again, so then another person is called to help
She finds the veins but they all blew 3 times, so then the doctor comes in
and he wants to try a vein that I know will blow and not work, as this vein has blown
Out 5 times before, but he had to try it and sure enough it did blow out again(6 times now)
finally on the nineth stab on my thumb a vein is found, all this took an addition 40 minutes
running the doc behind, so he ended up just doig two bilateral ijection and I got home around just 20 minutes after noon two band aides on my back and nine hand sticks
and some hand bruising, I' m finally resting on an ice pack..what a crazy morning...
and yes I drank plenty of water yesterday, it 's just that the Sjogren's syndrome cause
me to dry out so bad.. so I don't really hold it personally, even the best person
would have a hard time sticking me, plus on two of the sticks my veins moved on them...
I just hate that I made the doctor run late,sure wish I was easier to get my veins...
Someday something will go right...I need to rest now, y'all take care....
