Bloodwork and Trying to Wake Up

I had to have fasting bloodwork done this morning. This is always an adventure since I am a rather difficult stick. Once the needle is in and set, I'm fine. The problem comes when (1) the phlebotomist cannot find a vein and keeps tightening the rubber strip, or (2) they think they found a vein, then miss and start digging around to hit it. Thankfully, the guy this morning found a vein quickly. Once he stuck, though, I felt the needle move and thought he was going to dig. However, it was only a slight shift of the needle, not a full-out excavation. After that, it was over.

My fiancee and I went to IHOP for breakfast, then back home at 8:45 for a nap. I have class at 12:30, and wanted to get some work done before class, so set my alarm for 10:15. I managed to get up and out the door with no problems, but I'm still groggy from the nap. I'm not in danger of falling back asleep. I'm just moving a little slow.
