Battle scars

7 Sep

It has been more than a week since I got out of the hospital. But I still have a nasty bruise from the first IV attempt that failed.

I’ve been hospitalized at least 3 time back in the Philippines and I’ve always always had problems with veins and IV drips. I remember one time, my mom even scolded the nurse because she had to try 3 times on one hand and ended up putting it on the other hand, after an additional try.

I thought it was because the nurses were incompetent. But now I’m thinking it must be me and my weird veins.

Anyway, it doesn’t hurt at all. It’s just ugly. And a constant reminder to always follow the doctor’s orders – or else I’d end up with worse battle scars.

But I still do hope it clears out soon.
