I haven't been to this thread in awhile, and it's always hard to see my DC friends suffering! CJ, I cannot imagine anyone giving you a bad time - you are the essence of kindness and good sense. Having worked around doctors for all of my career, and having endured years of insanely bad treatment for my daughter's chronic illness, I can certainly understand what you're talking about. The US medical system is so frustrating and so EXPENSIVE. One of the things I like about our system here in Mexico is that you show up to see the doctor and he/she comes out of his/her office, says "Buenos Dias" and takes you right in. No meddling "middle'' people with egomania problems messing with you.

Stacy, I am so sorry to hear of the worry and sadness visiting your family. It is so hard to know what to say to someone with such a profoundly dire diagnosis. Hard to find the words for comfort. All you can do is what you are doing - be with him and let him know you love him.

It's nice to know I can come here to talk though.. Thanks again and hugs back.

Your family sounds like mine (the way your sister is). If it wasn't for my mother - everything would fall apart. I at least got some of her good sense when it comes to being there for family - at least I try. Everyone else in the family can seriously kiss off anymore. Huge hugs to ya!!!

UGH my dog just ate a POUND OF LARD!... ok most of it I was using it to season CI... there was probably 8/10 of it left... I stupidly forgot and left it on the counter while I went to eat dinner. returned to the kitchen and there was Tiger licking the empty wrapper.... ARGH I do not want to deal with the ramifications of this tomorrow... at least his coat will be shiny.

Oh, Pancho, my heart goes out to you. Glad you can see the silver lining in the...cloud.

Oh no, Pancho! I suspect Tiger may have to go outside a lot more than usual for a day or 2. (Do watch him for a couple of hours as sometimes dogs can get a "bloat" after ingesting a huge amount of food - especially stuff you usually don't give them.) But you're right, his coat will be "mahvelous"!
