Lying on a trolley I heard these words from the German anaesthetist, as he was flicking on the back of my hand with his fingernail “I am looking for zee vein”
Chadders “I normally have big veins on the back of my hand”
Anaesthetist “Not at zis moment”
“Flick, flick…Ah I see it now! You may feel a small prick” (Hmm you don’t say!)
He must have put in two inches of needle! LOL
Chadders “I sometimes make noises in my sleep. I hope you will not think I am waking up”?
Anaesthetist “Zis is not like sleep – I am putting you into a coma!”
Oh Lord help me! LOL
It is a good job he did! Picture below
Amazingly three days later and it is nearly back to normal size. (You can see the three entry points)
