A 10-year-old goldfish named George underwent a successful 45-minute surgery to remove a life-threatening tumor last week. His Australian owners took him to the vet when they realized he was acting off. They spent $200 to save their pet fish, which the vet at Lort Smith Animal Hospital says can live another 20 years, if healthy.
George had to be given general anesthetic, so Dr. Tristan Rich had him swim in a bucket of water laced with anesthetic. When the operation was done, they put George in a bucket of normal water. He was given painkillers and antibiotics, and after a few minutes he started swimming around, good as new.

I shouldn’t be laughing but I am
Dude if i had a fish for ten years I’d pay 200 dollars to save his life and keep him another 20
(noun) This wonderful, untranslatable German word describes the feeling of homesickness for a far away land, a place you have never visited. Do not confuse this with the english word, wanderlust; Fernweh is much more profound, it is the feeling of an unsatisfied urge to escape and discover new places, almost a sort of sadness. You miss a place you have never experienced, as opposed to lusting over it or desiring it like wanderlust. You are seeking freedom and self-discovery, but not a particular home.

:( doctors tomorrow cuz it seems I’m fucked up. Another kidney infection, two of the microdermals on my wrist are being angry one was swollen now it’s gone down and the other is extremely swollen red and leaky. They’ve not had any sort of problem or pus/crusties since they healed about a year ago which makes me think they’re reacting to the infection in my kidney, also my having to put tape on the one on my chest is causing some lovely itchy skin there, plus I’m freezing and generally feeling all together unwell. Hope i make it to morning so i can go to the doc instead of it getting worse and having to go to hospital tonight since its already 11:15 pm. Ugh i.feel horrible hope my kidneys don’t just give up after this many infections… :( thanks for letting me complain.
