The place was a lot smaller then I thought it was going to be, but seemed like a neat place to be and I would learn a lot from all the different cases that come in. There was one seal lion that came in and I saw them administering an IV. It made me think that I need to freshen up on my intravenous injection techniques. When I was doing my vet tech training we practiced with chicken meat, but were can I get syringes now to practice? Maybe I will visit my old school to fresh up.
I'm also signing up to be a part of a rescue team. You might have seen them on TV when Karina struck and they had specials on TV of all the animal rescues. I will have at least three trainings per year and in case of an emergency I can be called out. That one I am super excited about! I have to wait for my TB testing for that one, too. *sigh*
The third place I am submitting an application, is the Santa Ana Zoo. It's near by and I will get to interact with the animal. Oh, and do some dirty work like picking up poo. Ew! But it's all part of the job.
Saturday we went to the Phantom of the Opera and I haven't worn a dress in forever. I felt so pretty and girlie. I really need to learn how to set the timer on my camera and take a picture, cuz there are so many in this pose. They call it the "MySpace pose"
Sunday, I went to work for some OT and decided to treat myself to a massage afterwards. I did my regular steam room visit and mini workout before, as massage therapists have recommended doing so to loosen up the muscles. During the massage, I kept having to tell the guy that his touch was too strong, that certain strokes were painful and kept remaining him the areas where I was sensitive. When it came to my legs he lessen the intensity and it was more comfortable. When I got home I notice my back super sore and even tender to lay on. We I went to take my nightly shower, I noticed I had broken blood vessel all along my back. Three days later and it was still sore, hard to sleep on and the picture above was taken that shows I STILL had those marks! They look like hickeys. I called the manager at Massage Envy and he was a total dick and defended the masseuse, but kept saying "I am not discrediting what you are saying." Then WTF are you doing? Sounds like you are to me! I told him I was willing to come in and show him my back and he said it was not necessary and he apologized for the bad experience. And that was it. This guy had to be joking! I told him that I did not get the benefits of a massage and instead am in more pain then when I went in and would like a refund. His response was "(long pause) oh, that is what you would like?" I felt like saying "yes, dumb ass!", but knew that was not the route to take if I wanted my $$ back, so told him yes and picked a time to collect it.
Yesterday, I had the day off. It felt soooooo good, too! I was able to do some spring cleaning and got rid of a bag of clothes, deep cleaned the bathroom, cleared more space for when Jay moves in, and have 3 doctor appointments. I had a thyroid ultrasound and an uptake of it. I didn't know they give you a pill that is radioactive! Of course the guy told me after I took it. That freaked me out, but he said it was a small dose so they could take clearer pictures of my thyroid. SO I will let you all know how that goes when I get my results.
