Ridicully - verbal voyeur extraordinaire

I'll become more jaded in time, I'm sure, but right now, these things still make my day

Today, the first enterotomy that I did more or less completely on my own (time our Diplomate spent in the OR - 10 minutes at the max. Enough time to put exactly one stitch on the gut. Number of people in the whole surgery department on that day once he left? 2. Me and K. who was holding the gut for me. We were lucky a student poked her head in near the end of the procedure, to give us more suture material) came in for it's last check-up and to have the stitches out.

Nice Cocker Spaniel, eating and drinking fine (though hopefully no more swallowing of chestnuts), wound looking good, all is well.

Not even the early emergency shift that I really, really didn't want to cover today could stop my smile after that.
