Hog Pluck

This is my hog pluck. It is the trachea, heart and lungs of a hog. We used it to identify all the heart parts. Surprisingly it was not as grotesque as you may imagine. Aside from the retched smell I actually sort of enjoyed it because now I will remember the parts! We have one of those go getter really into types as every class must, I'm sure. She was more than happy to put a tube (that I wasn't confident was clean enough) down the trachea and blow to inflate the lungs. Super cool to see, though I was not about to do it myself. Anyway, first exam is next Thursday--so not ready. I find it way more difficult to focus than I did before Reese was born.
