The blood work was a different story!! After I signed all the admission papers, we walked down to the lab. Alise knew something was up because she was watching the lady before her have her blood work done and she came over to me and got in my lap. When she and I sat down in the chair, she started screaming. We finally had to end up laying her down while me and another nurse held her down while the other nurse drew her blood. I thought they were just going to prick her finger, but they drew two vials of blood. You can imagine how she was acting. My heart just dropped as I had to hold her and watch her cry. She ended up tearing her hot pink band-aid off and she screamed all the way out of the hospital. I talked to her and told her that she had a "bo-bo." She begin to calm down. Then we went to McDonald's and had lunch. Now she is fast asleep taking her afternoon nap.
I talked to the admissions nurse while she was doing a health and physical on Alise. I asked Suzzone how long I would get to stay with Alise before she had surgery. She said I could stay with her in the admissions area until thenurses came and got her for surgery. Well, that's just not going to work. Of course, I didn't tell her that, but I plan on going back into the ASU area with her. How in the world are they going to console her if I'm not there?
