  • Mood:

what a fucking night ...

so it starts ... michael ended up having to work, so no dinner with my boy. sucky. dinner with my family instead. not any less sucky.

Watched an hour of Beavis and Butthead with my brother (which just served to kill brain cells, but it's a guilty pleasure) and then off to work ...

and as i come in, they tell me what's there ... a 13 year old Old English Sheepdog, bloat. Surgery. I like surgery, i just didn't feel like doing it last night. but we do it ... get into the abdomen, and find that the stomach has not twisted 180 degrees, as is typical with bloat, but a full 360 degrees. in doing so, it actually managed to knot the spleen up in the blood vessels around the stomach. So to untwist the stomach, we had to first remove the spleen. So we cut that bloody mess out, untwist the stomach, pass a tube to deflate it, sew all the insides up and staple it closed.

after that, michael stopped by to visit me briefly, then i had all the other patients in the hospital to take care of.

i finally got out of there at about nine this morning, and changed clothes, put on a little makeup, and drove over to ACCIM for an interview. It seemed to go pretty well, she was impressed (seemed impressed, anyway) by the amount of work I do at Central. Three of my references come from her hospital. She said she's going to check up on my references and call me back tomorrow to let me know. It sounds promising, but i don't want to get my hopes up. my references are excellent,

I'm hoping Michael's birthday present gets here today ... i'm feeling terrible that it wasn't here in time ... this is what i get for being to lazy to actually go to stores to purchase things ...

and now, to sleep ... finally ...
