    I am not totally sure but I do know that when you use fluorsence microscopy with capsulated bacteria it doesn't stain it but a fluorsent halo is around them.

    Thanks that sounds like a good answer to me!

    And I survived. It was much easier than the A&P lab practicals and it didn't smell icky, either. We weren't timed at the stations, so we could move around freely. I was feeling very confident and headed straight to the dissecting scope at the beginning, then drew a blank on Fasciola hepatica and slid to the next station, which I did recognize. I never had time to make my organism wallpaper, but I did get them all memorized by domain, kingdom and genus. Afterward, we had to stay and do a full lab, but now I get a week off to clean my house and read ahead! Maybe I'll go to bed at a decent hour, too. I am such a Spring Break party animal!

    congrats! we just had our practical last week too I had micro on thursday and AP on Saturday I got a 97 on both. The micro was funny she did it all on power point, Ap was the traditional walk through. We have another month before spring break I can't wait! I will do the samething as you lol.

    Spring Break! Finally! Not really a break since we have a lab practical and Unit II as soon as we get back. I am holding on to a 93 average and I'm planning on keeping that way or increasing it with extra credit. Good luck to everybody! And have fun along with the studying! That is the only way you will be satisfied with your results :-)


    p.s. Group study helps!

    So funny....being a 30-something....I was just thinking tonight that once my lab practical is over (tomorrow), I only have two weeks left until spring break and then I can clean MY house and get to sleep before midnight!! If only my friends of 15 years ago could see me now....they wouldn't recognize me!!

    So my spring break has arrived. I am sitting here thinking about studying some more of my AP2 whilst I wait. I just cleaned my house and now I am feeling guilty about not studying. How sad is that? lol. Halfway through and I have a 98% in Micro so I am pretty excited and hoping I can keep it that high! Our next bits are on the actual diseases! I am so excited. Last class we looked at a bunch of conditions. It was pretty amazing.

    Blessedmom, if your house is clean, you can study to your heart's content!! Mine is in such a state that the week won't be enough. I still have my Christmas break goals posted by my bedroom door (I spent more than half of it curled up with a flu). Maybe this week I will have time to donate all the kids' outgrown clothing, make myself a dress and potty train my 2yo. I'll start with the potty training and see if there's room for any of the rest of it. I'm also planning to read and test out of the last 4 chapters of my online Sociology class. Yesterday, I had the brilliant idea to read the rest of my Micro textbook so it will be more familiar when we go through it in class. I'm sure that won't really happen, but it would be cool, huh?

    Well on top of trying to take Micro and AP2 and taking care of three kids under 7....we are moving in a couple months so I have to keep my house clean for showings (it is on the market). No stress there. lol.
    Wow, the rest of your book? Rock on girl! That is awesome. I just read an article about Clostridium botulinium and I was like oh nuts which was that. I knew it was G+ but I was like there is something else...there is something else...so of course I had to look it up. lol. I have a 2 y/o as well but not trying to pt yet! Yikes adding that on my list might drive me bonkers. What month was your 2 y/o born in? Good luck with the list. Hope you stay nice and healthy and productive :spin:

    Blessed you and I are neck and neck, your taking ap2, as well aren't you?

    We have a test in Micro on Tuesday, genetics, DNA Recombinent and Viruses then we have a take home on prokaryotes/Eukaryotes then we move on to the good stuff! I can't wait our instructor has her speciality area and experience in medical micro so we will be getting into that more so then usual classes she says.

    Potty training a 2yr old is an uphill battle, I would definetely restructure my time and do something more constructive, if you wait until you toddler is ready you will have absolutely NO work to do in the potty training department. All of mine trained in a day by themselves when they were ready all 3 by 2.5yrs.

    Give yourself and your 2yr old a break and relax about that and move on to something more fun.

    Yep Catzy, AP2 as well. I have an A in there but not quite as solid. Its like a 92% right now . I will get two A's at the end *I think I can I think I can I think I can*. lol.
    I am so excited to be getting into the diseases too. We start with the Infections/Diseases of the Skin next week....woohoo!!

    She was born in August. She became terribly interested in toileting right before her birthday last year, but because of school, I haven't had time to do more than let her go when she wants. She hasn't figured out BMs in the toilet, but she's great with urine. I'd like to switch over to training pants and see how she does over the week. She's made the mental switch to considering herself a big kid instead of a baby and I think this will be pretty painless. If it isn't, she can go back to diapers until summer. We use cloth, so it's not like there's a financial incentive to switch. I just need to have the mental availability to watch the clock and issue reminders.

    Thanks for the warning, Catzy. I think she's ready. I already did the uphill battle training my autistic son (I could write a book, "Potty Training in A Year" but I bet it wouldn't sell). No way would I waste my time pushing a kid who wasn't already interested. Our teacher is also an RN and spends a lot of lecture time veering off into medical subjects. It's terribly interesting, but sometimes I just want to shake her and remind her that she needs to get back to what she'll be testing us on.
