Mouse update: she has a tumor in her jaw. It will not go away, but the vets are giving her meds to shrink/keep it at bay. She had two teeth pulled so she should not be in any pain. I have to take her in for shots on Saturday and will get further instructions then. She is in good spirits, but very hungry. I am not supposed to feed her until tomorrow and then it will not be her favorite food as she needs to heal a bit. Although it wasn't the news I wanted, I am happy that she will be around a while longer yet. the vets are take her to love cats, so I know she is getting the best possible care.

Thank you all so very much for the thoughts and prayers for her - you, my friends, rock! {{{HUGS}}}

Be MERRY and safe!!!
Meceka, I'm so sorry to hear about Mouse w/ the tumor. bless her sweet little heart. I will be praying for both of you doll!

So very thoughtful, kind and caring. I'm lucky to be part of this forum!!!
wonderful news about ur Dad!~I have been praying for him. I wish him a very speedy recovery.

I ended up not being at work yesterday as I called in sick. Wednesday night I was up until 4:00 am as I could not sleep. Turns out, I have a pinched nerve in my lower back! That thing hurts like a son of a gun! It has been shooting pain into the front of my left leg. Anyway, I'm sure it will be better soon and not anything big...be back to normal soon.

The doc has me on a steroid. He said it won't give me 'roid rage, but will make me hungry. So, my BBQ bender I have planned for this weekend may have just gotten even bigger.

Hope you all have a great Friday!
I hurt my back while I was building the deck around our pool last year. I went to a chiropractor for a few weeks, and she fixed me right up! I hope you get over it soon!

Sending a prayer for your mom and for you. I haven't had screws in my ankle, but I do have a plate and screws in my neck. See?


I asked the doc if I could have a copy of this x-ray. He said he's asked that all the time, and he could sell me a copy for $50! When he walked out, I took a picture of it. LOL

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be an overcast day here with a high in the low 70's. My big plan for today is going to be heading to the horse track and making my bets for the derby. I'm going to go with Goldencents, Revolutionary, and Orb. So if anyone else is going to bet, avoid those horses!! They will probably all stumble out of the gate and then throw a shoe before they hit the first turn if my luck at picking horses holds up. I also need to avoid the other building at the track that I can't name here (the server has that word banned for some reason). All of those machines with flashing lights and ringing bells will be calling my name though. So it's going to be hard. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

You can do it! Resist the temptation!

We have quite a few of "those places" (since that word is banned...I assume it starts with a "C" and ends with a "asino") all over Oklahoma. The Indian tribes are allowed to own them.

Good luck!
