Evisceration Part II

Same warning applies as before- if you’re not a fan of the slightly gory then please don’t continue. If you are, here goes the second part of my account of what we do at evisceration! If you haven’t already seen part I it’s here. Once the cardiovascular block is removed, it usually becomes quite bloody... Continue Reading →

Evisceration (Part I)

This week I have been fairly solidly revising alongside putting together a presentation for a very exciting project (should it come to fruition which I hope it does!). I wondered if some people would like me to share the contents on here, and I figured why not as long as I give a little warning... Continue Reading →

Busy?

Recently the weeks have been going slower than they have in the past. It feels like time has slowed down a bit, days not flying by like they used to. I don’t think this is necessarily a negative thing, I’m not sure why but I think slowing things down a bit can be good. I’ve... Continue Reading →

Communicate!

I have been working on my next assignment this week which is all about appropriate forms of communication and overcoming any barriers which might hinder communication. One thing I never really thought about is that I really do communicate with a lot of people on a daily basis. I often joke that I prefer the... Continue Reading →

Post-Hartlepool Overload

As it turns out, two drives of five hours within three days, an exam and some intense lectures are enough to completely frazzle my mind. I am not complaining at having the opportunity I've been given to do what I do, oh goodness no and I totally realise just how lucky I am to be... Continue Reading →

Come To The Mortuary- We Have Cake!

This was the week I turned 32, I think I finally understood how yeasts grow and work was really enjoyable. Not just enjoyable because we had cake, but also enjoyable because I felt like I did some work I was really proud of and I could feel my confidence grow further than ever before. When...

Silly Cartoon Appreciation Post

It’s only a short update I’m afraid today as I feel more obliged to write this than actually have a plan as to what I’m writing! This is possibly the longest unplanned break between blog posts that I’ve had in the whole time I’ve had this blog and it was completely unintentional. However it is... Continue Reading →

100 Brains & Counting

In my around 18 months of being a trainee I have now reached my next milestone of 100 brains removed! That means I’ve roughly done slightly less than that in eviscerations I would imagine, as sometimes I have been in the post mortem room and assisted others by just ‘doing the heads’ as we call...
