Date with a Vampire

Remember how I've told you that I like the staff at bariatric center?  Well, that's not changed even though RN drew 11 vials of blood from me today!

RD called me yesterday because she finally got the okay to schedule me for blood work a little early to see if there are any deficiencies that could possibly be causing the lightheadedness (maybe slightly anemic??).  So today, RN became a vampire and sucked out 11 vials of blood.  I won't know the results until I see MD on Nov 7, but at least they've started the process.  I'm sure if there's anything alarming they'll call me.  RN also checked my blood pressure while I was there.  It was low for me at 98/64.  That in itself is a miracle.  For years (as early as in my 20s and 30s) I had high blood pressure off and on.  Though some of it could have been situational, I'm positive the extra 100+ pounds didn't help.

Oh!  I almost forgot!  I also got my flu shot today!  I endured two needles today!  (trying for some sympathy here...)  

So, until I get my lab results, I'm going to continue to drink plenty of fluids and have some carbs before Body Pump class.  It's an exercise regimen that I've actually started to enjoy.  I'm not going to let a little low blood pressure make me stop!  

"I praise you [God] because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." ~Psalm 139:14


  1. You didn't tell me about the flu shot, too! Holy smokes, you should warn a girl like me before posting this, especially after I was traumatized by the needles today. Oh I'm sorry, I mean "I hope you can recover from the blood loss and needles." =)

    1. I knew if I told you, it would put you over the edge! ;-) And thanks...that's the sympathy I was going for!
