Blood Work

Mom's taking Lyn for blood work this morning.  It is just part of her annual check up.  Lyn's not to eat before the appointment.  This isn't an issue because she often chooses to not eat in the morning.  Mom reminded Lyn of this and Lyn announced "Well, I'm going to be hungry."  She's angling for a breakfast burrito.

Mom will suggest to the phlebotomist that best results will be had if a butterfly needle is used and that the white medical tape should be avoided.  Lyn's skin very quickly reacts to the white medical tape.  Hopefully, they'll have a bandaid or allow her to not use one.  

Lyn's not thrilled with the appointment but will be cooperative.
