    Thanks Gina! I am so sorry about you having to get stuck so many times for lab! They only can use my right arm now, my left has no veins! haha One time they said we may have to stick topside of my hand like where an IV goes! I was like nooooooo try my arm again! I hate to get stuck on hand for anything! I ll let everyone know what tests say. I am sure they will be fine! Hugs kathy

    Just popping in to tell you how your sweet demeanor in the face of such adversity has given me a big boost of courage. I hope that all future test results you get will be better than worse. If you have hallucinations when laying down at least they should be of dancing fairies and singing tulips in a beautiful meadow : )

    I seen running horses several stories up in the trees outside my hospital room once. They cut my morphine off...that was the best part too!

    There was a time when I was young I had the exact same feelings, feelings of being so much older than I was. Now that I AM older (almost 50) I feel like a teenager! Well, in my mind at least. It is as if my body has adjusted to my illnesses and we know where we stand, "we" being the connection between my body and spirit. The true battle I fight every morning is in my mind. I think this may be true for many of us with chronic illness.

    You having your mind messing with you like this might make that part more difficult and scary too. I know when I am becoming aware that I am not "thinking" clearly on something, that worries me the most. I worry that it will effect the way I treat my loved ones.

    My heart goes out to you sweet Kathy. May you have many good things that give you some joy this week regardless of what your body is doing to you.

    OUCH!!!! That hurts.

    If you are allowed to have asprine, take a dose 1/2 hour before a phlebotomy. Sip room temperature water for an hour before and it might go better. I drink down an entire bottle of the regular size drinking water (8 oz?) bottles 15 minutes before, but I start hydrating first thing in the morning.

    I have had aprox 75 units of blood removed and learned this trick early on. It works so good my phlebotomist would tell all the other HH patients who had vein problems to do it.

    hi kathy,

    you are a very gracious lady....you maintain your compassion even when you are facing these spinal issues. I hope the tests go great, that you have empathetic technicians, and that you can then rest.

    Please let us know about your tests as soon as you can. You are being sent many angels to gently encircle you and lift you upon the softest cloud that you can imagine.

    Ayah....thanks for the great advice...i will definitely drink lots of water, my veins seem to know when they are about to get poked, and they run like hell. Sounds like Gina's veins have learned the same trick.

    share a smile today
