Death is inevitable

The ketamin flowed through her vessels. She’s limp; flaccid. She was then sedated. An incision was made superficially from the xiphoid process down to her umbilicus. She jerked a little bit. The anesthesiologist introduced more anesthesia.

Incision continued… A minute vessel was cut! She bled.

“Clamp!”

It was then sutured.

We explored her abdomen. The organs were unremarkable but the appendix was missing.

She then started to wheeze!

"She's gasping!"

"We’re not done yet!"

The anesthesiologist then declared code blue.

"Code blue!"

Heart beat was dropping. She then stopped breathing.

Oh gawd she aspirated!

"She’s drowning!"

They suctioned her but it was already too late.

Resuscitation was of no help.

Time of death 11:30AM.

Our cat died yesterday in our cat surgery. The team was saddened. We were in shock! I was stunned; distressed! The anesthesiologist’s anxiety and despair was apparent. I know he felt as if he should be blamed for it.

But it was a team work! We were all responsible.

Moving on… and for a very unrelated topic, I just want to share these two sites which I find very interesting and kind. Enjoy!

Freerice.com

It is a sister site of the world poverty site, Poverty.com.

  1. To provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
  2. To help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

Giving free rice is made possible by the sponsors who advertise on their site. So what are you waiting for? Donate now! Feed the less fortunate and enhance your vocabulary!

JacksonPollock.org

Jackson Pollock is an abstract painter who popularized paint pouring and drip technique. He used hardened brushes, sticks and even syringes as paint applicators. He would poke a hole in the bottom of a tin can of paint to get an extended drip line. Pollock's technique of pouring and dripping paint is thought to be one of the origins of the term "action painting".

And so, there’s a website created by Miltos Manetas which gives you the chance to make your own Pollock painting. As you will notice, I placed a similar widget in my sidebar as a gift to my readers. It’s a gift because for me, Pollock-inspired painting can somewhat relieve stress. Just strike and stir you mouse cursor over it and voila, the art you just created can owell, at least make you happy. Go on... play with your mouse like a kid!
