Yay, finals are over, holidays are over, it's time to relax before school starts again. I survived another semester of three science classes, coming out with a 3.5 GPA, which could have been worse, so I am happy.

Christmas was good, and amazingly all of the family parties worked out this year so that I didn't have to try and go to like three in one day. I'm sure poor David was sick of my family after this holiday. Having a blended family can sometimes suck as it increases the amount of Christmas parties that one has to attend.

Anyway, big news of the day is that I spayed my kitten Stiletto, and this time I remembered to bring my camera. So, below are a ton of pictures of the day. (Open incision sites, and a cat uterus, so squeamish people look at your own risk)

Intubated kitty
Me arranging my instruments
Me making the first cut
Me cutting some more, although I can't figure out why in the world I was using my right hand considering I am left handed....
Searching for the uterus
Still looking, I know it's in here somewhere

Making some final sutures to the uterine stump
Trying (unsuccessfully) to make my incision site look pretty
My holding up the removed uterus
My zig-zaggy incision site

Thank you. I feel bad that I was all excited that she was alive this morning. I worried about her all night. I got up like ten times to check on her. She's all back to normal this morning, so apparently my surgical skills don't completely suck.
