It appears that the repeat blood test was because the previous one had been “unacceptable”. They usually use the word to describe a tube that wasn’t properly filled. I promise you that from where I was sitting there seemed to be plenty of blood in it.
That’s a coincidence, as the word “unacceptable” also figures in my view of events.
They managed to get a sample in only two attempts today, one attempt less than yesterday. As a result my cubital fossa is rather sore. That happens when the tests are close together.
Looking on the bright side, I’m not ill, the test is now done and I have learned a new word.
My next post will be more cheerful.
