God, today has not been a good day so far.

First,  I woke up with a headache.  I've taken something so now it's a dull ache, but with my luck and headaches, it will be back.

Second, the doctor that we are testing for brought over 10 mice, one was dead on arrival and I believe another has died too.  I'm about to go check on him.  Hopefully the heating pad has revived him, but I doubt it.

And finally third, while I'm getting ready to start the habituation for the fear conditioning test I needed to run today, I noticed that one of the cameras for the object recognition test has fallen off the wall and landed in the OR box beneath it.  Don't know if the camera is broken yet.  I'll test it while the first set of Prez's 5-choice rats are running.  BUT, I WAS planning on running the OR tomorrow.  Now I'm not sure I can.  (heavy sarcasm) Whee, this is going to be fun! 

Edited at 12:29:  Despite my efforts, the weak mouse has indeed died.  I've just emailed the doctor.  Now to wait and see what he says.  (sweats a bit)
