Hi everyone. I haven’t been here in a while.
Ok, so I just got back from my physical appointment with a medical nurse. After complying with tests such as hearing, breathing, etc, the nurse comes back to me and tells me that I should schedule an appointment for blood testing, thus I could not eat or drink anything except water. At first this surprised me as I never ate nothing for a few days or more (except for Lent fasting) but then I remembered my Catholic obligation to receive Christ in his body and blood. I told my doctor that I couldn’t fast for a few days to a week WITHOUT receiving the Eucharist. The Eucharist is essential for me, a day without it is like leaving home with one arm, I feel incomplete. So she then decided that I forgo the fasting for the blood test and that I get a flu shot instead.
But thinking now, I’m not sure if I made the right choice, in regards to my health. Maybe my blood is clogging and I have no clue. Or maybe there could’ve been a way around it? I’m not too sure if I made the right decision.
