So, last Monday I went to le hopital due to sudden and fairly severe abdominal pains. Thought it might be an appendicitis, but turns out it was an ovarian cyst. Took 6 hours, a CT scan (which was kind of scary, I must say), lots of poking, prodding, tests, and my favorite, an IV to figure this out. I hate IVs. Blood doesn't bother me, but metal, stitches, broken bones do. It's not the pain, just...feels so unnatural. Also, apparently I have small veins, so this involved multiple sticks with the needle. Yay! ANYway, this morning, 6 days later, suddenly have a big bruise where the IV was.
WTF indeed.

But it's all good, right?
Did they let you keep it? Have you named it yet?

They didn't do shit. Gave me a shot in the ass and charged me nearly $3500 for the whole thing. I'm waiting to see if my insurance covers it.
