Today, for the first time...I went to the hospital to do a health check. I've never done one before. The last time I did a medical check up was in 2003...when I got a new job and I never remembered of any blood samples taken. What made me change my mind??? Coz my hubby got a free health check voucher and he gave it to me.
So back to my story. The health check was simple....they only needed my urine sample and my blood sample. The urine sample was easy.....but the blood sample?? Was easier said than done. uhuk. It took like 4 different person to finally draw any blood from my blood vein.
The first person, couldn't find any of my veins. According to her, my blood vein/vessel is too small and fine to be detected. I asked her whether it has anything to do with me feeling very cold at that time. She said no...I was born with it. Yeah...maybe with my size...I don't need to have that big of blood vein/vessel anyway.
So, the second person came in. Poke me with a needle....finally...there was blood.....but...only like a teaspoon of blood. She tried to pull and push back the syringe to draw more blood. That seems to be failing too. The only successful thing it manage it do was...give me pain....a bit at least. If I can pass the pain that my "monthly visitor" gave me..I am sure as hell I can pass this pain. Then she tried again on my right hand. It was even worst...no blood came out at all.
End up, they send me to the lab...and told me to tell the lab technician that they couldn't draw any blood from me. So...I arrive at the lab...and took my number. After waited for a while, a doctor called me in. eheheheheheh.....he too was unable to locate my blood vessel. At first, he thought it was a success..but than the blood only took a peak of the outside of the body view than goes back in. At this point, I was bursting with laughter although the pain was unbearable...and I was holding my fist very tight. Even the doctor laughed..until a nurse came in and asked what was happening. ahahahahaha. The reason I was laughing is because I was looking at the doctor's face expression when the blood came back in...and I was thinking to myself....even my body knows that it was lack of blood and it refuse to share. wakakakakaka
Then finally, a cute nurse...finally found the right blood vein that agreed to gave away some blood samples. What did I get?? Two plasters..one on my right hand...and one on my left hand as souvenirs. wakakakakakakaka. Up till now, I can still feel the pain as I lift up my hands. But I take it as a funny experience..not a harmful one.
I told my mom my experience...she said she had the same problem too. It took nine different syringe to finally find her vein. I guess small vein runs in the family then. ehehehe. The results??? Next Monday. Hope nothing negative about it.
