|I look kind of bemused here. Don't know what that's about.|
ONE TO GO!!
Things went really smoothly this time. I was dreading the actual stick, since last time was such an ordeal. The nurse told me later that he was too. It's not good to be remembered because your veins are uncooperative. I'm coming out of this thing with a definite dread--less than a fear, but more than a dislike--of needles. It ended up taking just one try, so I am very grateful for that.
The doctors told me that I'm doing very well, tolerating stuff well, and having comparatively few issues. Here I thought I was being weighed down by pallets of bricks and puking on my doorstep, but it turns out I'm doing better than most. I don't know whether to feel guilty that I'm such a whiner or relieved.
