My father told me that my doctor put my I.V. in the wrong place in my hand, and it is because of this this I developed a scar/hole in my hand (that still hasn't healed and prevents me from walking correctly and using my left hand). I am just so glad that after 10 months, it is almost healed; but I still have to get a skin graft for it to be the right color and I can't get the skin graft now because I am on coumadin (that's what I think I've been told). I hope that no one else had a doctor like mine (who, I guess didn't learn anything from his 7 or 8 years in college)
