I gave blood 3 hours ago and, since I’m usually allergic to band aids, I took the wrap off so I wouldn’t get a rash. And, bah! It’s still bleeding! Can you believe it? I swabbed it with alcohol and saw the hole. It’s big. Or bigger than what I’m used to seeing for these things.
Since the blood was coming out so slowly when I was laying there this afternoon, they tried to reposition the needle a couple of times. One of the last things the phlebotomist said to me was “Um, you might get a pretty big bruise there tomorrow. Give us a call if it concerns you.”
