Well, that’s over with…

Both Bean and I had the day off today. (I from work, and daycare was closed.) We braved the rain and finally made it to the Lab. Yes – it was TrialNet day.

Finally. Part procrastination, part scheduling challenges hindered this little experiment. One vial of blood took nearly three months to draw.

She did so well. There were tears, of course. I got flashbacks of me in my mom’s lap during blood draws as a child. The ugly lab chair with the fold down arm. The white walls. The only thing missing were the stickers on the band-aid. (Though, I could have lived without the strange waft of cigarette smoke in the lobby, which I couldn’t explain.)

So now we wait.
