How much blood does our body hold? LOL

Yesterday I had to have 30 tubes of blood taken!! I could not believe it. It took two employees and two needles going to take that much blood. My arm is still sore today :( But at least this rhuemy wants to find out step by step what is going on with me so that is good.

I am going through the prednisone withdrawl which is awful no matter how many times on it-it seems so hard to wean down-fever goes back up, mood disturbances are rampant, and I feel like crap.

Not a lot to update today as far as how I am feeling or anything-feeling pretty yucky and swollen, and feeling a little tense over the blood work-up but otherwise ok..................

Scary that "mike" can neither spell gallons correctly, nor has understanding of the conversion factor. Basic elementary school level work.

5.5 quart (US liquid) = 1.375 gallons (US Liquid)
