The Bug Geek

Insects. Doing Science. Other awesome, geeky stuff.

The good, the bad and the ugly

The good:  my first teaching lab went as well as I could have hoped, I learned from it, and the next one will be even better.

The bad:  the three-legged one underwent yet another surgery today…two actually: a lumpectomy (thankfully benign) and an episioplasty (YouTube it if you’re not squeamish)

The ugly: a post-operative dog who just had an episioplasty.  Not a pretty sight, and not for those squeamish about blood.  I am sleeping on the floor next to the dog tonight to make sure she doesn’t hurt herself.  Thank god for multiple pain meds with no contraindications.    I am very, very happy I don’t have to be on campus until next Wednesday. Yeek.

    Yay for the teaching lab!

    Rascal and I are sending some positive healing vibes north-bound for Jaida.
