Shots, shots, shots, shots.....

I'm all done! I gave myself my last injection this morning. All in all, this process made me realize that I'm a giant baby. I'm showing you this picture for proof. That's the needle compared to a regular pen.
This medication was a blood thinner that I needed to inject into my stomach once a day. Since I just had major surgery and my leg is in a cast I was at a high risk for blood clots. In all honesty, the needle wasn't bad at all, but the medication sort of stung after it went in. For like, 3o seconds. I also have a sweet collection of 12 bruises on my stomach where the needle went in. I'm super happy this part of the recovery process is over!
