You guys will not believe what I got on my exam today. It was on renal disfunction, neuro, and anxiety disorders.

I got 100%!!!!!

I am just so excited. I finished the test and it told me my score. My jaw dropped into my lap! Then I clicked "review missed questions" just to make sure. Again, it told me I scored 100% I went to leave and the proctor asked me how I did. I held up my paper and showed her where I wrote my score. Her jaw dropped too and she said, "Oh my God, that's great! We've never had a 100% before!" SQUEEEEEE!

I am so. so. happy. I read the material (except for the psych stuff because I heard buying the book was not necessary) and I did all the powerpoint stuff online. I felt okay going into the test, and when I was done I thought I did pretty well, but 100%? UN. REAL.


I think I need to go take a nap now. I couldn't keep my eyes open on the train this morning.

Cath Lab

I don't have a lot of time to write this entry, but I just wanted to say that I got to observe in the Cardiac Cath Lab today and I really liked it! Basically, a catheter is inserted into the femoral artery in the groin. From there it is threaded up to the heart where contrast dye is released so that the coronary blood vessels are visible. It is so cool. This is about what it looks like:

I alternated between standing in the room where the procedure was going on, and the room beyond the glass where the recording nurse sits. That person keeps an eye on the heart monitor and also records the procedure log. Here is what the image looks like:

So you can't really see the *heart* but you can see all the vessels surrounding it and pulsating. I can't explain to you how interesting this was to me. I'm just so jazzed up by this experience. I got to see 3 procedures done in the 4 hours I was there. I was lucky, it was a busy day.

Anyhow, got to get ready to take the train down to Alex's. He's picking me up on the bike. Woohoo!
