Third day of ER clinical rotations.
Got two more IV sticks, including one in a dark skinned person (makes it harder to visualize the vein), who had scar tissue basically from wrists to shoulders, that *everyone* in the ED was saying I'd never get. "Everyone has an impossible time getting one with that person. But you should at least try." in the tone of "...even though you're going to blow it." I'm pretty happy I got that one, though I was literally sweating over that one. (I was drenched by the time I got back to the nurse's station.) 
The second one came a lot easier, and I think I'm starting to turn the corner.

Toured the OR (during which (and I found out later) I missed out on two more IV opportunities) and got my orientation on what I'll be doing on Monday. Short form: bring my A game.

Exhausted. Bed now.
