Like Roy I'm not anatomically correct. They've even pulled out ultrasound trying to find my veins for IVs for surgery. My veins twist and turn and are truly a work of art.

I hate hate hate...did I mention HATE...having to have blood drawn or an IV. Just the thought makes me sick.

Even my danged nerves in my mouth aren't right according to the endodontist that just did a root canal on a bottom molar without getting the tooth numb first. "If you can just hold on for a minute while I numb the NERVE we'll be in business"...ummm, yeah. I couldn't let GO I held on so hard!!

I have much sympathy for patients that are hard sticks...kindred spirits and all :)

Yeah, I know I'm a guy and all that...

... but I don't think foleys hold a candle to NG tubes :eek:

If I ever present to the hospital with a GI bleed or something, just shoot me and be done with it. Please.

cheers,
