Part two.The needle is in.

Yes,I was scared sticking the poor elderly man with the needle for the first time.As I got it in he did make a face and said it hurt a little.
It was so much fun.Kinda gave me a little high for a few minutes.I felt like I truly mastered something.And only in my mind did his eyes roll back into his head and alarms go off.It was so mucheasier then I could have ever imagined.
Soon after I did poke him he did start coughing and sound like he was getting sick.I asked my trainer if it was because of me and I had traumatized him to much.She assured me it was just a thing he does on occasion and not to worry.
So folks nothing happened,he survived and all is well.
Again I must say thanks for all the encouraging words and support.It was a rough few weeks but now I think I will be a success and can enjoy my work more.

You liked having him say it hurt??? No wonder we have such a kinship...we are both odd in a unique way....sending my best Cruella Deville laugh your way....

Well, Brian, you did it! Personally, I like starting IV's too but only on people that have good veins. It's a challenge and an accomplishment all in one. (I'll have to admit though, I am not fond of needles when I am the recipient!)

I think it would be really hard to be put in a position that may cause others pain. Especially if they are older or children. Just try to keep in mind that you truly are helping them.
Hang in there, you are needed.
