So begins day three of the surgury course.
Amusing things learned:
-Our instructor (who has a noticeable accent) taught us the “French Canadian Method” of cardiac puncture. Yeah, I’ll need to mess around with that some.
-My surgery skills have grown very rusty from the times when I did these things much more often, but rust polishes away quite quickly…unfortunately not quickly enough before we move to more advanced techniques.
-Vascular surgery in a mouse is work for watchmakers. I can do it, but man it’ll take me some work on that, and I think I’ll be using more of my time for these methods then the others that will be presented.
-Boy I should have been smart and cut that gorgeous steak I had for dinner in half, rather than gorging myself like I did. Rarely do you get meat cooked perfectly from food services!
-Said steak lead to freakish nightmares of mouse innards under high magnification, and then no further sleep from an upset stomach.
Thankfully we’ll only be in class until noon today, then we’ll be touring the park. I suspect the sleep I got will wear off quickly.
Hope y’all are well too!
