My day as a human Pincushion....

Today I went the hospital, I had a glouclose tolerance test and an MRI which is am sure costs more than I make in a month. Thank goodness for insurance, I really am grateful for that. I was there from 8am until 2. I read a whole book. I got complimented twice on my shoes. (my cheap 6.99 freds shoes) I have many holes and bruises in my arms. I have bad veins, and am allergic to the tape they use so I look like a junkie! But when I called work to explain how late I was and I just had to eat(I was fasting and by 2 my hands were shaking) and then I would come in, my boss told me not to, that it was slow and they didnt need me! So that was good. I was able to go the DMV and get my handicapped thingy for my car which I hadnt had time to do! That was good because they dont open on saturdays here. Also, there was no line...woohooo! Thats unheard of! Anyway, I made a photo montage of my day. I spared you the sight of my pincushioned rashy arms though.

The canadian's job will not start next week, but the week after. The shifts are 7-7 so he wont be getting home until 7:30 or 8 am. I dont think the dogs will wait that long when I get up at 5:30. But I have a plan now so all is well.

Hi Mel.

Hopefully you're feeling alright after your long day at the hospital...without eating.

I'm glad you have a plan...and that you got to get some things done that you wouldn't have otherwise.

Take care!

Your Pal,


I haven't thought of any good rewards...Sorry.

If you didn't get out of there until after 2 p.m., I am glad they said don't worry about work. Those tests make me tired anyway.

I hate having to fast, but it is nice when you can eat afterwards.
