I counted 21

Beth does not yet have a “central line”, and she hasn’t wanted to get one, because when they do the transplant, they’ll have to put a new one in anyway.

So when Beth has blood taken, they have to use a vein in her arm. As a result of the twice-weekly blood draws, plus all the transfusions, not to mention the Vidaza shots and IVs, she is pretty bruised up.

So the nurse is now looking for an IV specialist, to find a good vein.
