    She got her follow up appointment done and she cut her insulin number from 26 to 15 and we found her progesterone was down to less than .20. She's down 30 pounds and I passed my "plumbing" tests. The doctor has given us the go-ahead to start trying again. My wife and I are really excited about this. Let's hope this works.
    That's wonderful! Prayers for you that it works!

    Both overnight managers have told me I'm doing a good job, so there's hope. That being said, I want to be prepared in any case, so I'm thinking it's time to get to Michigan Works and update my resume.

    been there as well. It isn't fun. Worse when they have lived their whole life with the pattern of unsound/irresponsible behavior and people always coming to the rescue.

    That being said, he needs to find a new job. he's a taxi driver and when the weather's bad, business is great. However, we've had good weather recently, and business is slow. He hasn't worked in a few weeks, and he'd rather **** and moan about the lack of money than get up, go to Michigan Works, and apply for jobs. I've told him to suck it up and apply at Wal-Mart, but he's not listening.

    On the positive side, he's more understanding of my new hours and my need for sleep. So that's a plus.

    Our yellow lab is the same way. Thankfully he doesn't eat socks and such things near as much as he did when he's younger. Glad to hear the surgery went well on the golden.

    NO!

Having had dogs who've eaten things they shouldn't (once a bit of mower chopped tennis ball, once just burrs), and having them go through surgery both times at roughly $1200 per, I know how serious it is. Although the bill for Sassy's hours long fishing expedition may even top that. It'd be nice if she learned her lesson, but nah, they never do.
    About $1,600. Surgery would have about tripled it. And you're right, they never do.

    One of her favorite things to do is run around the yard picking up and throwing rocks. Goofy dog.
