The last few days have been pretty unexciting.
Our appointments are slow due to the cold weather, although our emergencies have been steady as ever. On Monday morning I ran up to McKinney and flushed out a mare with a pyometra (infection/pus in her uterus). Oh the glorious job I have. Everyone walking by was asking, “Whatcha doing? You’ve got your arm WHERE?” It was great, really.
Have I mentioned that repro is not my favorite?
Later that day I radiographed a horse’s teeth, I have also done an emergency health certificate and talked down a girl with a pregnant mare showing signs of discomfort 4 months before her due date (who may not even be pregnant, but that’s another story).
Today I had a full day of appointments, but all of them were little piddly things. I gave an allergy shot this morning, wrote three health certificates at noon, checked an old wound, and was called for an emergency laceration this evening. I thought the laceration might be exciting since I was told it was an eyelid, but when I arrived the horse had an inch-long gash above one eye that only required two stitches.
When I finished with the emergency I headed to the gym to pound out three miles on the treadmill before heading home. I’ve made a New Year’s Resolution to run a second marathon this year, and my training officially started this week. I honestly can’t wait, the best I’ve ever felt was when I was marathon training four years ago.
Just a quick update tonight, since there’s not much going on and I’m trying to get to bed early! Off to snuggle with these girls!
