Old Lady Vein

I had lunch today with Judy who has been my friend since kindergarten. She is a nurse who lives in Vermont. As usual, the conversation turned to "Can you believe we're this old?" and I said I don't feel my age, but then I notice things like this -- and I pointed to a vein on the back of my hand which never showed until now. I notice it every morning as I put toothpaste on my toothbrush.

If you hold your right hand out, palm down, look at the space between your thumb and index finger and then move about two inches toward your elbow, yes, it's that vein.

She told me that EMTs call that "the old lady vein" because the EMTs claim that, come what may, they can always get an IV in that vein. So I said, "Ok, then, I'm prepared for the IV!"
