Today I visited the Good Old Cancer Hospital and underwent some check-ups ie. blood and a CT. And no, I have nothing to report on the health-side of things, since I won't see a doctor until Thursday. So you just HAVE TO WAIT until that. I'll report ASAP.
Lots of needlemarks. A prick there, a prick here and a rather frustrated nurse, who apologised profusely for sticking a needle and then some into my arms. Couldn't find a blood vessel that didn't burst up the moment she tried to syringe some liquid to it. It really hurts when a needle is being injected to your hand. Imagine that four times. Finally (after six futile attempts) she was able to find a suitable vein from my left arm.
Which burst right open the moment the scan was done and the iodine supply was shut. Luckily so. Blood all over the place. Didn't stay for the clean-up. Waiting for Thursday and the verdict - fingers crossed.
Kothar - Barbarian Swordsman was "eyeofargonish" to the very end. This really makes most rpg-fiction look like Nobel-prize contenders. Terribly satisfying to see, that you can get published, even if you don't have a single intelligent or new idea in your head. And yes, it's sad too.
Fingers crossed in Tampere too. And yes Jukka, I too know the pain of needles being stuck in your hand over and over and over again... until they find a vein that´s not too thin to stick a needle in to. sigh.

Yeah, they usually can't "easily" find a vein when I go to donate blood and need to probe a bit...
Hopefully, you'll have good news when the results of your tests come.

They usually tell me that it's a "good thing" when they can't find veins, though it never feels that way...
