I am so proud! I have been having the HARDEST time with drawing blood and well I finally did it! I brought some supplies home and told my hubby that I needed him to be my guinea pig *evil laugh* and he agreed because he is so giving. And guess what? My first stick I was drawing blood! I can't tell you what a rush it was to actually fill up those two vials of blood! I am so darn happy! I now know that I will be able to do this with practice and be very good at it. He even said it didn't hurt as badly as it usually does. YAY!

I took medical assisting at VoTech my senior year of high school and we were to learn to draw blood and I could NEVER do it!! I tried to stick my teacher one time and didn't get it and NEVER tried again!! (I passed anyway!)
Congrats! You've got a very nice hubby!

Ha! Congrats but good thing you didnt ask me because I never give up the goods. They stick me in both arms and then sometimes in the back of my hands to get the blood that they want... and even then they have to use a butterfly needle.

To top it off, I have O- blood and the Canadian Red Cross is asking all people with O- blood (its the universal blood type... we can donate to anyone no matter what their blood type but can only recieve O- blood) and here I am with the right blood type and cruddy veins.

Oh, I am a vampire, ok, used to be anyhow. I used to work as a phlebotomist. The trick is feeling for those suckers. I can still do it. I have actually drawn blood on myself, sad...... Anyhow, Congrats!

A past doula client turned friend allowed me to do a second draw yesterday. And I did it again! I am so happy! I never thought drawing blood would just thrill me so!
