Hmm let’s look back at what’s been happening…
Thursday we got to do our second small animal clin med lab, so we were back in the teaching hospital going through a case with one of the fourth year students. This time we had an 8 year old English bulldog that had acute onset anorexia, lethargy and abdominal pain. It had to get an ultrasound while we were there, so we didn’t get to do much actual hands on stuff, but we did have a good discussion with the fourth year about all the different things it could be. Some kind of ulcers or perforation was at the top of our differential diagnosis list.
Friday was a very average school day, we had a couple discussion based labs and a few classes. I did a bunch of studying when I got home, and then Melitza and Sarah came over and we watched a movie. I also made white chocolate snickerdoodle cookies, which were delicious.
Saturday it was very snowy so nothing was going on, I just hung out around the house studying and watching movies.
Sunday I studied in the morning, and then went to a small Superbowl gathering to feast and watch the game. I made my buffalo chicken wing dip and everyone loved it. The game wasn’t as good as I thought it was going to be, I was hoping for more of a nail biter. But we had a good time just hanging out. After the party Gill and I had a hockey game, and we didn’t have a lot of players since a lot of people wanted to study for our test the next day. So the game was really hard and we did a lot of skating and thought we were going to puke. We ended up losing, but I had another assist!
Monday morning we had our bacteriology exam, and it went very well. Then our section had the morning off, so I came back and napped before afternoon classes. Monday night there was a bar night fundraiser for the Global Vets trips for the summer, and since most of my friends are going on trips I of course had to go out and support them. It was a lot of fun, we rented the whole bar so it was only OVC people, and there were discounted drinks and cheap shots. We did a lot of dancing and they raised $1400!
Today we only had a couple hours of class, which was awesome. At lunch Helen came over and we watched then new Teen Wolf episode, and then we had to take a while afterwards to calm down and stop yelling about everything. Then at night the whole crew gathered at Sarah’s and Gill’s house to watch it again. I have to pre-watch so that I can explain things to them. Then I came home, and now it’s time for bed!
