I worked in the lab all day today. I wanted to repeat the insulin dose experiment, and try another glucose injection. If the glucose injection causes an increase in blood glucose after several hours as it did before, I plan to inject insulin and look for a subsequent decrease in glucose levels. At least I'm fairly efficient bleeding and injecting now- it's not as frustrating as when I first started. The Carpentry Shop hosted a get together tonight. The people who work in the shop dressed up in costumes, people had a chance to talk and everyone danced- it was a lot of fun. One of the things that strikes me about McMurdo is the enormous variety of people. People from all walks of life are here- everyone is friendly and looks out for everyone else- it's a nice community to visit.
