100 grams of glucose....

... at 9AM. Ick.
Am I complaining and being a baby? Yes, Sorry.
I went back to take the 3 hour glucose tolerance test. Have I mentioned I'm actually not much of a 'sweets' person. I prefer salty things.
Last time I got 50g of the orange drink. This time they were kind enough to give me 100g of this fruit punch flavored drink that I had to get down in 5 minutes, after 12 hours of fasting. Bleh. They poked my poor little arm every hour (a total of 4 times) to get their blood samples. Anyway, at least they had a cozy little room for me to sit in for 3 hours. I brought the laptop and watched a movie to help pass the time... always waiting for the bell to ring, letting me know I had a friendly needle coming my way.
Well I'm just glad that's over. A minor annoyance. Now lets just hope that I pass with flying colors.

Yuck! I'm sorry. Complaining is good, clears the head. Could you add carbonated water and at least make it taste like the orange hi-c soda at Mc Donald's?

Gross. I hope you pass this time and don't have to go through that again. Once is enough!

Too bad you couldn't have Jeffers with you.
Hope you passed!
