I am sorry for your loss, it's a tragedy losing a pet.

Got ice cubes, Bliss? Put some in a dish pan with some cool water, and put your feet in it. When your blood circulates through you'll get cooler, I promise. Don't forget to keep a towel nearby.

Sorry you're feeling so miserable!

I tried a new class in the pool tonight. aqua zumba. My knee is killing me, to much jumping around for me.

So sorry BT...I just know there's a one-eyed black cat waiting to make friends with him.

Me, I'm just hanging out with myself, enjoying having all the bills paid and shopping completed, at least for today. Life is good!

thanks merlot, bliss, dawg, simonbaker, and pf.

he was a good cat, great mouser.

the good news is one of his siblings has decided to try out living inside our house. it's been touch and go so far, but dw is slowly enticing him to eat in the kitchen instead of outdoors, and spend the night in a playroom (away from all of the other pets until we see how it goes, and he sees a vet).

Z, glad to hear everything is going your way!

BuckyT, sorry about your cat. I remember when you had to break it to your boy (he was little at the time) that one of your indoor cats died and how tough that was on all of you.

I just got a call from my orthopedist's office. I guess she mentioned I called yesterday to the doctor and he wants me to go get xray's today and they will call me after they get them. Better than waiting till August to see him and sitting in ER for hours!

I'm sorry to hear about you losing another furry buddy. Its really tough. I'm glad to hear this news though. And may I just say how lucky the furry folks around your neighbourhood are? To have such a caring family looking after them is a real blessing. You and your DW and son are a sterling example of how we need to treat animals.

Thanks for all the suggestions to stay cooler.
We did decide to A/C one room last night--after sopping my head, after laying under a fan with wet cloths, after ice cubes in front of the fan.
I'M COOLER--temperature wise and probably cooler 70's jargon wise too. It's expensive so it's not going to stay on unless it is over 90 degrees.

I'm buying a small plastic (not blow up) pool today, next time I'll plunge myself into it before becoming so miserable with the heat. I'm sorry for complaining about something so many people can just 'take'. How do they do it? I dreamed of snow yesterday. When snow covers the ground I dream of spring.

I'm not particularly an unhappy person, I was just way past my limit for heat yesterday.

I hate waiting in the ER. I just got a call from my doctor. They are having an e-mail conversation regarding the next step. My doctor, the opthamologist, anesthesiologist, cardiologist and the head nurse. It comes down to, "who is going to authorize using anesthesia for my surgery. Because of my heart condition, it is rishy putting me under. But I refuse to have the surgery without it.
