The Calm Before The Storm

Tomorrow is our big 9HealthFair.

Tonight, we wait.

The site is set up: all forty-four phlebotomy stations are stocked and ready to go; the twenty-four blood pressure stations are lined up like soldiers awaiting the fight; the twelve sixteen-head centrifuges are laying dormant on their tables waiting for the chaos to begin in fourteen hours.

The other stations, which we don't staff, are standing ready for the onslaught of participants tomorrow morning.  We're planning on between 1,500 and 1,800 participants tomorrow alone.  Saturday, believe it or not, will be our slow day; we'll only do between 1,200 and 1,500.

I can't wait.

Bring it.

Have you made up any "Phlebotomy Sucks" bumper stickers for your students?

I hope you had so many people whose blood isn't tainted with mad cow disease and who didn't pass out!

(I meet both of those requirements unfortunately.)
