Since we already decided to return to the Rio Grande Valley next winter and I needed to get bloodwork done for work I decided to get a PCP here in the area. I pretty much randomly picked a guy which turned out to be the choice of many other workampers and fulltime texans here.
The nice thing is they do the bloodwork in house so no extra cost there for me. Overall I am interesed to see if the price for the visit will be more or less than in New York.
Since I have to fast for my bloodwork I returned the next morning all hangry and without coffee intake to get my blood taken. They had an interesting setup for the bloodwork… a counter and two chairs next to each other…so two people gettign blood taken sitting side by side… the lady that took my blood was not very good at it… the flow stopped and she wiggled the needed in my arm to make it flow again…bit painful and the open area with some stranger sitting next to me and the people waiting 4 feet behind me reminded me of my first day in the navy when they processed you and you walked room to room getting blood taken and your junk fondled.
So that’s done…waiting for my lab results to see if being a long term vegetarian (1year) has a long term impact on my cholesterol and other blood results.
