DONE and done!

Yesterday I took my last Anatomy and Physiology exam!! I am so excited to be done! Since I crammed A&P I & II into one semester, there was a total of 14 exams, and I am so relieved that I finished. So if you want to know any textbook knowledge about some of the systems and functions of your body, let me know. I know a lot! I have been surprising myself lately by knowing about obscure diseases (for example, while watching Scrubs the other day, J.D. thought his patient may be suffering from a disease he saw on a documentary referred to as "chompers" and I knew immediately that it was necrotizing fasciitis - a form of flesh eating bacteria!)

Anyway, what am I doing to celebrate? Well, today I took a deeeeep breath, went grocery shopping, caught up on 24 online, and now I'm thinking about reading a book that is not a textbook for fun. Happy Friday!

i'm just glad i knew what you were talking about with necrotizing fasciitis! i take pathophysiology this summer, that should have some good diseases in it.

yay KT, I'm so excited for you! as soon as I read necrotizing fasciitis I had to open my micro book to make sure I correctly remembered that it was Group A strep. maybe it's good that I don't live close to you b/c I might just want to talk about obnoxious medical things all the time. hope you find some good books to read! i read "A Thousand Splendid Suns" over spring break and highly recommend it.

Wow! Very cool, Katie. That's pretty awesome cramming A&P I & II into one semester. That's pretty tough! Congrats! Can't believe you have so many friends studying the same. Future doctors? Future nurses?
