Random thoughts (really needing to just get stuff off of my chest....)

Dirty Nails...

So today I decided that I had had enough of wondering why my child was still sleeping so much, if can hear, why he is grumpy when he is awake and why he still has a tan (jaundice) so I went to see Dr. B again. He was only concerned with the jaundice thing. Not that he is really jaundice but that he still is jaundice. So he sent us off to the lab for some lab work. And while we were walking out Dr. B. touches Soren's head and I said "Looking for a vein?" (joking of course) and he replies "No. I am just checking his soft spot again. It's small. It is something I am keeping my eye on." I say "Should I worry?" And tells me not to. (By the way, Dr. B. says that this jaundice could be from Soren nursing. So does that mean I may have to stop that? Dr. B. wants me to wait until we get the lab results before we decided on that. I am so frustrated! CALGON!!)

So, that means poking my child. Anxiously I go to the hospital lab and wait. And wait. And WAIT!! Finally we get called back and this girl (about 25) has me put him down on the table. I notice she has more stuff out than I have ever seen at one of my blood draws and I am a lot bigger than Soren. She goes for his arm... I question her about why she is not doing a heel prick- and she tells me that one of the tests (something about his electrolyte balance) can't be done that way. So she goes for one arm. Of course both Soren and I are bawling! She can't get anything. Another women comes in during this "procedure" and asks if she would like help. Now we have two lab people. So she heads for the next arm. It is at this time that I notice her finger nails. They are horribly dirty and she hasn't been wearing gloves. Not only are her nails dirty but she has some horrible body stench as well. She was kickin'. She tries the second arm and blows his vein. Then she goes for his foot. It is at this time that I feel like kicking this woman's ass but I know we can get some blood from the heel- just not all that we need. So after 20 + minutes of trying to console my child we get to leave.

I hate the smelly dirty finger nail girl!! (Jeff tells me that I shouldn't be hard on her for not getting a vein. Fine, I will just hate her for being gross and smelling!)

So, I don't know if we have all the blood we need. I think Dr. B. will want to know more about his electrolytes so he will more than likely send us back in. UGH!!

All I want right now is an Oberon and a pint of peanut butter ice cream.

I had a very similar experience when Eli had to have his blood drawn, for a lead level and he was closer to 2.. It took 3 people to hold him down and get the blood, with me standing in the corner covering my eyes. Yikes.. You should say something to them next time about not wearing gloves..Poor little bugger..and Mom, 1 oberon does not make you a bad mom.. trust me..

Seriously, go ahead and drink the Oberon, hon. One is okay.
