Learning All The Time

This morning I was told that if I wanted to make it easier for my veins to be found for the lab techs as they attempt to draw blood from my arms, I should drink a lot of water the day before the tests and a half cup of water before coming to the lab.  As it happens that is exactly what I did yesterday and this morning and for the first time ever there was no problem in locating a suitable vein immediately.  PRESTO!

Walk to the clinic too if at all possible. That will really stir your blood up! My veins disappear at the sight of a needle. Walking helps. I will keep your drinking tip in mind too! Thanks.
