A Word of Advice

If a nurse is holding something medical with intent to apply it to you and she says it isn't going to hurt, do not believe her.

It's going to hurt.

A lot.

Even without needles.

I've been going through some health issues recently, caused by my infection.  Turns out it's a superbug that simply laughs at most antibiotics. Most... but not all. There are a few that will kick it in the teeth, but they're all IVs.  After a week long fiascorevRxing the placing of a PICC line that involved three attempts, two failures, a lot of bleeding, and a company losing the facility's business, they finally got one in me. 

My arms look like I let a boxer practice on me for a while though.

At least I'm in Duckford.

Oh dear. Uh, congrats on being a catalyst for change?
Hope the PICC crushes the infection.

2 Wait till a doctor ask you what is your pain tolerance is,that is terrifying.  Had the old school Hiatal Hernia surgery,more or less cut you in half.  Hurt so much my mind still blocks it out.  It is an Endoscopic procedure now,lucky kids.

4 Holy wow, you never want to be the camel's back that breaks the camel's back, because to get a vendor change usually involved either back-room shenanigans or something going SUPER pear-shaped. Ugh, sorry man.
