Back in CT
I arrived at home yesterday around 345PM. Today I didn't accomplish a whole lot. However, I did stop in at the vet where I worked at a few years ago to say hi. While there, the owner was going to be removing a spleen from a dog because the spleen had a mass on it. Well, he made the incision and the mass was quite large and he was having a hard time removing the mass. Finally, he looked at me and said, "Why don't you scrub your hands and glove up and give me a hand." I finally put to use the lessons on scrubbing up for surgery I had at the beginning of the school year! So I scrubbed up and put on sterile gloves and helped him out during the rest of the surgery (No, I was not using any tools, I was strictly the assistant!). It was a lot of fun though! I start working at UCONN on Monday so I have tomorrow and the weekend to do nothing!
