Had a great weekend this past weekend. Didn't do any schoolwork (always a plus at the time, a negative later on) and got to see my brother and my Dad. Saturday was my Gramp's farm auction so got to see a lot of family which was nice. Gramp was pleased with how the auction went so that was nice. I did grab a tool that they used to use to place rings into the side of pigs noses to discourage rooting. I figured just a small keepsake from my Gramp's farm. My brother and Dad's keepsakes were more numerous and take up a lot more room (and they want me to bring them all back to CT for them when I drive home this winter for Christmas, good thing I'm a nice son/brother ;).
we were all in Eureka for church as my cousins served lunch. I had a
good time there (even if there weren't any vanilla doughnuts ;). Sunday
night whoever from the family could go out to dinner went out and then
hung out for the evening. Was a great time, but now, I'm sitting in
class writing a blog post, I mean, learning about interdigital pyoderma.
I have 7 hours of lecture today and not lunch break as we have to do
our initial work up of our surgery patient today over lunch hour. Gonna
be a long day.

rate, anesthetic depth, etc throughout the surgery. Hopefully all will
