      Thank you. I had 2 iv’s and numerous blood sticks and then I had to have insulin. I am terrified of needles and they kept sticking me because the veins kept rolling.

    Never would’ve imagined writing a haiku about a hospital stay, but you summed up the feelings well. Going home is the best medicine 🙂
