Ok. It is extreme generalized edema. The patient was just fluffy, and puffy. It was a strange feeling this fluffy edema. No pitting. Just fluff.

Also impossible to draw blood on or start an IV.

It was just impossible.  And the House MD just laughed at me because he did not want to do it either, after my bizillion sticks. (no just kidding not that many)
