Fasted for the Bloody Day

21 Jan

Happy Friday everyone!! Bloody day for me today -without the bloody orange.

Even though I was off from work today, it didn’t feel like it! I was OUT for most of the day and STARVED fasted until noon!

First trip to the doctor’s office at 9:30am

Not too many people, but believe it or not I spent almost 1.5 hour here and most it just WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING.
After the PA talked to me for a mere 5-10 minutes, they told me to go to the lab for the blood test. That was quite a surprised because in the past, they used to draw the blood right there. Anyway, they mentioned they already sent the lab order electronically so I just need to give the lab my info.

Good thing is the lab is located on my way to my next appointment so I dropped by. After I got there, the lab said the doctor’s office HASN’T SENT the order. I was like BLAH! It was almost the time for my next appointment so I figured maybe I just came back later. Called the doc’s office and assured they sent the order.

Second appointment.

Can you believe this is the doctor’s waiting room? So cozy huh? Didn’t spend too much time waiting here but it still took at least an hour.
And got another blood work order.

On the bright side, there’s the lab NEARBY this place and it was only walking distance. Two stuff done!

They took 8 tubes of my blood (6 bigger tubes, 2 small ones).

And a urine sample. Gah, I hate taking urine sample! Gross! Enough said.

Finally I could have my first meal of the day!
Lunch at the hospital cafeteria.

digged into this right away.

Funny thing is I wasn’t actually super hungry and cranky, despite being in empty stomach for about 16 hours (last meal I had was last night at 7:30pm).

Last appointment of the day.

I was the first person!

Finally got home around 4pm and started up dinner and working out!

Phew, a workout always makes me feel refreshed afterward, despite drenched in sweats. After having my lunch, I was actually more sleepy and tired than being on an empty stomach. Weird. Have you felt that way before?

Stay tuned for a yummy recipe! 😀 I’m too tired to type more now.

Nite nite!~

    Gah, I hate when they get so much blood from you! It’s like, “Hey, leave something for me!” Makes you feel weird afterwards. Like with this weakness after eating on an empty stomach. Totally irrational, but I know it as well. If I am too exhausted, eating and digesting food feels overstraining.

    8 tubes of blood!? That’s crazy! It’s weird, the more I eat, the more my body wants food. The less I eat, the less hungry I feel.

      I wished, but I heard we’re not supposed to workout before the physical exam so the result will be more accurate?

      Have fun with your doc’s appointments! 😀
