Doc says I'm healthy. :-) It's amazing what a good feeling it is to have a doc at an annual checkup not even mention my weight. So I think I'm doing well.
The lumps are likely fatty deposits and/or the back one might be a cyst, but nothing to worry about, at all. Benign in any case. So that's all to the good.
In the lab, the nurse was new, and she didn't hit my vein the first time. She got the more experienced nurse, and when the new one was about to say that the experienced nurse was going to do the draw, she was the one that asked me if it'd be okay for the new nurse to practice on me. I said sure. "When you get a patient like this..." said the experienced nurse. *grin* Yay! I'm useful for nervous new nurses! It's a good thing. She got it on the second draw and had a hard time replacing the vial with the new one. Still, we did okay.
I like the karma when connected to blood tests.
