I had blood drawn yesterday. Once a month, I have a complete blood panel, which means three tubes instead of one and a mini one. I was concerned, given the state of the veins, that they wouldn't be able to get it in one stick, which would have been a drag.
I keep seeing the same phlebotomist (I request her now), so she knows what's going on, which is nice.
She used a little needle (in my hand) and a syringe to suck the blood out and was successful in one try :)
But what was weird was that in the vein, I could feel the suction from the syringe. Funky.
