we are studying peripheral vascular disease right now. and though it is my least favorite instructor, i am really digging the topic. it is just kind of fascinating the subtleties of how the system works and what can go wrong. i am a little frustrated that my book doesn’t go into enough detail on the topic. i keep getting to the end of paragraphs and find myself asking why. which is not what nursing is about. *sigh*. still, occluding arteries and veins and how to treat them (balloons to push stuff out of the way, and rototillers, essentially, to bore out the plaque!) is really amazing. though we i think about cardio, it doesn’t thrill me that much. the science is so cool. perhaps a post-surgical ward or an ICU with cardio patients. it’s the detail that is so cool in this case. of course, i am pretty excited about psych this summer too. oncology in the spring?
holy crap! arcattack! this is a group of guys that make music using giant tesla coils. wow. just wow. i bought a necklace with a picture of tesla on it (from secret oktober!) and someone i was talking to asked me if i was familiar with these guys. words escape me. this is just SO nerd cool!
