Blood Tests

I have a cold. This isn't really surprising, or unusual, or even worth mentioning, because I get sick all the time. I catch anything and everything that anyone anywhere has. I get sick every week or two.

The problem is, yesterday morning as I was just starting to feel congested and achy, I was sitting in a hospital waiting to have my blood drawn three separate times over a period of four hours. The needle pokes were unpleasant, and the hours of waiting were boring, but by noon the test was over and done with. I came home and wondered to myself how long it would take to get results from the test. Upon Googling, I read that the test results are unreliable if you are sick.

Now why didn't the nurses, upon hearing me sniff and sneeze, tell me this little fact?

  1. Hi Sarah,
    Thanks for stopping by my Here and There blog earlier. You might want to check out Altered Plates, my other blog that is dedicated to cooking with agave instead of sugar.

    Hope you feel better soon!
