doc-visit aftermath

When the nurse can't find your veins:

This was a new nurse, not the one I've known since 2015. She palpated my right arm, then palpated my left arm and slid the needle in... when no blood came out, she went for the back of my hand. That seemed to do the trick, and now we have proof that I'm not undead.

The previous nurse could find my left arm's vein with no problem.

Sorry for the blur. Less-than-ideal lighting in the burger joint.

Same happened to me, though in reverse (mine was hand then elbow), last month when I went in for a "procedure."

I've got that evocative phrase from Natalie Imbruglia's song "Torn" in my head: "crawl beneath my veins."
