IV in one!

I was majorly anxious about my IV placement today. I have notoriously shit veins and it was painful at last month’s infusion. But this awesome nurse Tim used the cool vein finder machine again and was miraculously able to get my IV in on the first try! Today’s #OneGoodThing was completing my 16th round of…

Using all the spoons
