hepatic what?

School bores me. Busywork is a waste of my time.

Last night's "in-class assignment" was this: Write a paragraph on hepatic lipidosis and a paragraph on porto-systemic shunts. Work in groups if you need to.

Two paragraphs on diseases I'm relatively familiar with. Two and a half hours of class time to fill. I cannot write that slowly. I read the liver section in the small animal internal medicine book. I filled two pages with notes alone, mostly from memory.

I wrote and turned in three pages. Symptoms, definitive diagnostics, treatments. I even included some follow-up care guidelines.

Grade this, bitch.

This isn't our full vent setup. Normally, there'd be twice as many tubes and wires. This was just on a vent so that it didn't die before the owner came in to euthanize it. i think his name was porkchop. and he had no tail at all, not even a stub. it was odd.
