Oh, you know me too well. Mostly interested in the guy down the hall who is hollering. And the nurses station is right across the hall, so I can watch everyone coming and going.

The last time I was in the hospital there was a man in the next room who kept yelling "Help Me!" It bothered my husband so much he wanted to go in and check on him. The aide told him that the guy does that all day and night for every little thing. He would not use the call button. I felt sorry for the guy in the room with him. At our hospital, the call button gets answered immediately.

You sound like my husband. He calls everyone in the left lane an idiot. He thinks that lane is for him only.

Right now I'm being, um, serenaded by a dryer filled with bulky stuff and a handful of tennis balls to keep things stirred up. Sounds like we've got someone captive in there trying to get out.

In a few minutes I'm going to the kitchen to make another batch of bird suet. We're supposed to get hit with another ice/snow storm tomorrow night, along with bitter cold temps. Some several degrees below freezing and is predicted to last for the better part of a week, so my little avian friends will need fuel. I made suet a couple of days ago but it'll be gone soon because, as I glance out the front windows, I see that suet cage is empty and I filled it yesterday.

What a gorgeous day for a drive!
Man, it is so bright out there as only a winter day with lots of fresh snow can be.
And the roads in the city are hardpack and haven't turned to ice yet, which was nice. I came back home across I90, which was bone dry (thank you chemicals, lol), and you could see Canada across Lake Erie.

And the vet ruled out a bunch of stuff with Pierce's bloodwork, so it's either a brain tumor or epilepsy. Time to contact his breeder and see if any other dogs from his litter have reported in with seizures and let her know.

Thanks. I'm sure he'll be just fine.
If worse comes to worse and he keeps having them, that could be a problem when Kimber gets older. I'll know more after she hits puberty. They're pretty good buds now, so I'm pretty sure they'll stay close.

Sorry to hear that, pac. Are Pierce and Kimber related or the same breed?
