Poke LL night

Tonight and Saturday night were 'Poke LL night', not my very favorite thing. My parents have been visiting me and my mom, a nurse, wants to make sure my friends (and me) know how to give myself the injection I need in emergencies. So we all practiced on an orange first and then on me (with saline solution). 2 pokes each night--ow! However, worth the bit of pain now to be better prepared for an emergency later, especially if it saves me from a hospital stay.

Was your mom a nurse when you lived here? I didn't remember that, but all of you kids were really young, so if she was, I'm sure she wasn't working right then.

Yes, she's been a nurse since before I was born. She did work while we lived in Arizona, maybe 2 or 3 days a week.

I wish I was there to join in on the party. It has been awhile since I have given shots to any patients!! I am glad mom and your friends were able to be there, and that you were such a tolerable patient while they all poked you.
