Day 18: one handed

My IV came out of my right arm, so my nurse put a new one in my left arm.  Its been poked so many times in the last few weeks that the best vein was on my wrist, just behind my thumb.  So I can’t really use my wrist very well.  And I am typing this all with my right hand.

It is interesting that this is the first post I have tagged “pain.”
