we had our iv lab today. practiced on the dummy arms and we all know that doing things with those dummies is entirely different than working on a real, live, heart pumping person.
so i brought home a new angiocath and talked my hubby into letting me poke him! :chuckle
he went for it so i tried it. missed the first stick in the back of his hand. didn't feel real confident before i even attempted it.
so then i tried it again in his other arm and I GOT IT!!!!
woohoo! i feel so relieved! now maybe i won't panic when i actually start doing this in the hospital next week.
