You'll bruise some, but we give a whole segment of education on bruising tips. If clotting runs in your family, you will probably have the markers for it in the blood tests. Sorry you had to find out with a full blown DVT.
And Kim should get a nursing degree if she is at all interested. It's pretty good job security. People will always get old or get sick, even in the bad economy.
Actually they didn't. They just told Kim to inject it like she does my copaxone for the MS. I actually have a pretty nasty bruise from where the VA nurse injected my last shot yesterday before I was discharged. Is there somewhere on the 'net I can find that info?
