Bicillin Injection #7

Had my 7th injection today. The needle went right into a vein which can be really dangerous. If the nurse were to actually inject the bicillin into the vein, it could kill me. This is why when the needle is put into the skin they aspirate the syringe to see if blood comes into it. If so they know they have hit vein and need to stop. Thankfully she is very educated and a great nurse. So, she took it out right away and had me put pressure on it while she got the blood out of the syringe and put a new needle on. Second time we were clear and good to go. So today I got poked two times and have two battle wounds but glad it wasn't worse! Onto my 8th injection on Thursday!
