0 for 5 - OUCH!
We got up early this morning to have my kidneys checked out. The day started out great, I was in a good mood and it was fun to see snow in Maryland.
However, the procedure never happened. The good people at Hopkins could not find a good vein to stick my IV in. They tried on both my feet, my left wrist and both of my arms - thats five sticks and they found nothing. I cried with each stick but I somehow found a way to smile every time I saw my mom. I even smiled at the crazy people who kept sticking me. Its a bummer that I have to go back in a month and do it all over again.
The day got better because Dad didn't have to go in to work. Can you believe that they closed the university because of only a few inches of snow? Holy Cow - I definitely
want to go to school in Maryland if they close down for this stuff. I can't wait to learn how to snowboard.
Here is a picture of all of my IV attempts.
