  • Re: A Thread for prayers, good vibes and what have you

    Whew! Thanks for the prayers. She is fine. They were able to remove the holder and 3" piece of corn cobb without surgery. They did an endiscopy which allowed them to insert a light and lasso the stuff. It took a few hours and many tries to get it all out.

      Did you get to keep the corn cob holder for the next time corn on the cob is served?

        Glad she's okay. 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.

            Goldens always have to have something in their mouths. Mine generally has a stuffed animal in his, he'll even fall asleep with one in his mouth at night. Outside its anything he can get his teeth on, mostly sticks but he likes plastic soda bottles also

              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.

                Good news: my dad has entered into an agreement with the mortgage company. He'll send them a payment each month, and we get to keep the house. His church is graciously helping, so that's a plus.

                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.

                    That being said, I'm not going to stop looking for a new place to live. I really believe we'd be better off abandoning this place and moving into something smaller.

                      I think you would be better finding your own spot where you weren't constantly fighting against the tide to have an orderly life where you weren't always needing to convince someone to do the right thing.

                        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.

                          Trying to encourage relatives to take steps to be more sound and responsible financially isn't fun. I've been there. Glad to hear there's some positive things happening though.

                            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.

                              Before I do that, I want to make sure I have a permanent job. This job at Wal-Mart is only temporary to start, and I'm not sure if they'll keep me around after this 120 day period is over.
