Currently I am sitting in the waiting room at the hospital. I am completely sick to my stomach. I'm here doing my 3-hour glucose test, which I'm pretty sure is going to kill me. At least this time the drink was lemon-lime flavor instead of orange, but still disgusting no less. I've already made 2 trips to the bathroom thinking that I was going to throw it all up, but thankfully it has stayed down. I would hate to have to redo this test yet again.
I showed up at the hospital this morning around 7:40. There was only 1 person checking people in and I was about 3rd in line, so of course just to check in took about half an hour. Lame. Then, there were people ahead of me for the lab. Again, totally lame. I'm STARVING here people! Come on! (see what hunger does to me? It turns me into a grouch). Finally I get to the lab around 8:15 or so. They tell me I can't drink the stupid drink until my urine comes back normal. So I wait, and wait and wait. Finally at 9:00 they bring me the drink. Then I had to drink it and every hour for 3 hours I get to have my blood drawn. I also had to have my fasting blood drawn as well. If you are keeping count, that is 4 blood draws in 1 day. All I can say is at least they don't use the sticky tape on my arms. I'm so ready to go home and I still have to have my blood drawn 2 more times. My bed is calling my name. I just need to lie down for a while and rest. I feel like I'm swimming in my sugar coma.
Needless to say, I haven't eaten anything since about 7:00ish last night and I can't eat until after noon today. My babies are ticked off. They already had their little sugar rush with the drink, now if I can just feed them some protein we will be better.
