Last One, I Promise

The nurse who connected my IVs during my trigger thumb corrective surgery the other week had problems with my left hand. She poked me several times trying to get that little anesthetic IV needle into the vein on the back of my hand.
“Sorry … sorry … sorry …” is what I heard.
Three days later, when the swaddling bandage came off, this is what my left hand looked like:
Pretty bruised. But the bruise has gone away and the hand looks normal again. Finally, this morning, the doctor removed the stitches. All that’s left is a final check-up in two weeks.
Hey! Thanks for hanging around.

Yuk, looks similar to my left arm (before the tech moved to my right arm) when I had my MRI a couple weeks ago.
