Day 267 – Hidden

27 Dec

I had a hard time today giving blood and it affected me like it never has before so Iย  have been asleep for the last few hours. I give on a pretty regular basis and I have never gotten sick or felt faint but man alive I almost passed out on the Red Cross bus today. I felt so horrible for taking up their time to put cold compresses on me and hold my juice but I just felt the room spin when I got up to leave. Thank goodness I didn’t pass out, how horrible of a scene would that have been!!

They had an even harder time than usual finding my vein and the woman pushed the needle so far in I was about a second away from punching her LOL! That might have had something to do with it and now my arm still hurts and is quite bruised. I tell ya I can really do it up right can’t I ๐Ÿ™‚

I think I am going to make this a cloud week. I pulled into my moms drive after work and saw the sun hidden by these big clouds so I ran in to get the camera. The sky can be so majestic at times ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

    The volunteer must have been a rookie. Sorry for the bad experience, hopefully the next one will be better.

      She was the nurse, the technician refused to try and draw my blood LOL!

    I am so sorry! Use a small ice pack. It will help to minimize the bruising and make it feel better. A bag of frozen peas works very nicely! Love the pic of the sky. I always love those type of pictures. They are so beautiful and majestic.

    Hope you’re feeling better, Mindy. I’ve never had problems giving blood until the last time the blood mobile came to work. That day I ended up spending an hour in the clinic b/c my bp dropped too fast. Must have had the same woman drawing our blood. LOL

    Great shot. What settings did you use?

    Lovely shot. Your sky ones always are ๐Ÿ™‚

    Awww. Sorry about your *adventure*. Have friend who went thru the same kind of experience because she hadn’t eaten to great beforehand.

    Majestic is the word that fits that sky. Great capture!
