I Survived! I knew that I would... Still they had to poke me 4 times then decided that my viens were so bad, they would use my ankle so they did and got the vien. It took a really long time about a hour and 15 min. I only got the stem done and go back tomorrow for the brain scan. I hurt all over when done although the thing I lay on was really soft and they put the kneww support there which really helped. Thank you all for all the good advice. I took pain meds before going in and I know that helped. After Russ took Bev and I to Pet Smart in Pearland while he went and got lumber at Home Depo. I got Pocket a 'surfer' Bobo and the Labs a Monkey that when they play with it he makes Monkey sounds. I am waiting now for Gunny (our african Grey) to start making the sound. She copies all the dog toy squeeks. It is a Fun place to live, my house!

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
