Here's the most dramatic botched-IV bruise. This puppy's two and a half inches long. Luckily, it's much less painful than it looks.
Note: Posting a photo of the bruise was Gary's idea, so complain to him if you find it distasteful!
I still have a bit of a headache, and very sore muscles from the GI excitement and the uncomfortable urgent-care table, but I managed to muddle through work today. I just hope I can finally shake the headache tomorrow.
