Just Some Quick Information

Well this is going to be a quick update.
Yesterday we learned how to do a minor surgical procedure and remove stitches. Thank goodness we didn't practice on each other this time around, but it wasn't a mannequin either. It just so happened that we performed surgury on a pig's foot! At first I was a bit grossed out but I got over it quickly and did the procerdure really well. I can't wait to see what's in store for today. I'm so Excited. I must say I really am enjoying school. The minor surgical procedure was draining and removing a cyst from the pig's foot. Haha...yeeaa. Well I'm starting class so I'll write again soon.

2nd Test Scores

For my second set of tests I was a bit nervous to find out what I earned. I was worried about it all weekend. Then Monday came along First class went by and then it was off to my second class (the one I took the tests in). Mrs. Caldwell Handed back our tests as soon as class started. When I looked at the theory, I got a 100 and then I looked at the terminology and it was another perfect 100. I was definitely relieved. My goal to be on the dean's list is still going strong. :)
As for other news, the YSA activities are going great and Institute is definatley still a knowlege builder. I'm very excited for this friday though, because there is a dance and some of my friends and I are dressing up in 50's attire. I've already gotten a circle skirt and scarf for the outfit.
Today after school I'm going to a doctor's appointment to get a large bump on the back of my head checked out. It's been causing some really bad headaches, and I rarely get just a headache. Most of the time it's migranes. Hopefully all goes well in that department.
Well that's all for now. I'll write again tomorrow.

First Test Scores

Well I've just resently had my first two tests in school and I just have to say....I got a 100% on both of them! Just had to let you all know that.
This week in school we are learnig and practicing immunisations(Shots). One of the shot spots on my arm is brused but the other two are still fine. We started this unit yesterday and I was really anxious. I wasn't anxious to get the shots, just anxious to give them. I was afraid I would do it wrong or something. It went well though. We don't use real medicine when practicing, we use saliene. In my other classes we are learning about different drugs, their source and practicing on some more word elements. I am really loving school right now and I can't wait for classes to start each day. Studying is even fun because I am learning new things and I am starting to get the health care professional's point of veiw when working with patients. Well I have to get ready for class. I always come early to school for study time, but class is about to start so I'll try to write again soon.
