RE: I have survived toughest year. Still in danger, but still alive.
Sending you thoughts as always. Hope each day is a little better than the one before it.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Pulling for you, Banjo. I'm not ready to give up your wit and expertise, so snap out of it already!

I intend to take a pic with my camera.

Thanks mate. Smile

I've been in hospital many times for orthopedic surgeries (bone tumor, bone transplant, bone infection, ...) and have twice been denied appropriate pain medication by what I call a pain Nazi. One was a nurse, the other a doctor. They seem to have some moral stance against opioids.

Make a stink about this. Tell your doctor that you never want to see that pain Nazi again.

Why haven't they put a Heparin lock in that (or some) vein? Consider

Most people have a terrible time hitting a vein on me. I cringe when I have to have blood drawn or an IV started because there's a good chance it's not going to turn out well. Often they have to resort to getting blood out of my hand with a butterfly needle but the vein often collapses before they get all they need. Confused I nearly always end up bruised quite badly.

When I was at the ER a couple weeks ago, they got an IV in on the first try but it was uncomfortable. When I was getting dressed to leave my husband pointed to the floor where there were blood drops...then I saw the ones on my foot and my jeans. My arm was pouring blood. Wouldn't you know it...if they had needed blood there wouldn't have been any. -sigh-

Of course I ended up with a huge bump and a bruise on my forearm. I feel your pain with the icky veins thing.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Yes, this!

I had to raise hell to get something for pain after my mastectomies. My surgeon didn't 'believe' in using pain meds...I bet her stance would be different if she had been the one going through it. Thankfully my plastic surgeon is a sane and compassionate man. But I had to fight to get the nurse to call him. I was about five minutes from calling him myself when she came in my room with all the drugs.

RE: I have survived toughest year. Still in danger, but still alive.
I wish I could give my veins to Banjo. All I have to do is lower my arm slightly and veins pop out. I'm kinda skinny. I have easy access veins.

Thinking of you Banjo. Heart

At the moment it is because they hope to discharge me for two weeks. And I hope not to be here.

I got a hep lock in the ER room and I was out a few hours later.
