Cystocentesis Surgery

Ahhhhh, so the week is almost over. It’s Thursday night and I’m sitting at home after some dinner and just relaxing for a bit. I had my physiology lab test today which went alright for the most part and then had to run to surgery afterwards to help my friend Faye with a cystocentesis and cystotomy procedure. We finished within 2 hours and everyone worked hard, so we were the first ones out of the 3 groups in lab today.

I realized that I do a bad thing when I have a lot of stuff to do in a day. If I have a lot to do and a lot to study for or have an impending exam that day I’ll take every short break I have and run to the cafeteria for a snack. I think today I ran to the cafeteria about 3 times to get something to eat. It’s kind of a bad habit of mine… always wanting something sweet to fill in the gaps between classes, tests and such. I was on such a roll with the exercise bit for the last month but this past week I wasn’t able to actually do any exercise. Usually I’d run or do some type of cardio for at least 30 minutes to an hour and I was able to fit a little weight lifting into all of the craziness. But this past week has been a blur and I’ve been feeling more tired and cranky than usual.

I don’t like to get up in the morning. My alarm goes off and I hit snooze thinking to myself, “Just 15 more minutes…”. That is why I set two alarms… I can never really get up the first time unless I push myself.

So now after dinner I’m feeling relaxed and sitting at my computer I’ve decided to tweak the background and color a little bit for the site. Nothing really flashy, but just something to make it more pleasing to the eye. Belle, one of my surgery teammates, visits my blog a lot and said that the color I put in the first revision of this site I did yesterday was quite interesting since it was a lavender or lilac color. She said it was kind of girly looking, but to tell you the truth I get that a lot. (Just so you know, I’m red-green colorblind. ๐Ÿ˜› ). I always make mistakes like that when it comes to designing and art… oh well. I’ll leave the colors to people who really know which ones are pleasing to the eye.

Gonna rest a bit… maybe get some coffee with some friends later and then hit the sack. The week is almost over but it isn’t quite yet as I have to run to my equine rotation tomorrow at the veterinary teaching hospital in the morning.

I’ll leave you all with a picture of me helping out Faye during our surgical procedure today. Catch you all later!
