Hope, sorry to hear about your babies not doing well.

Mern, of course you were missed. Keep that in mind the next time you decide to run off...

Cassie, don't beat yourself up.

Enjoy your 4th everyone.

Hope, I can totally sympathize with you about your kitties. I have had a hell of a difficult Spring with my dog. He was brutally attacked by another dog in late March, spent 5 days in intensive care, then suffered a bladder infection and a month later I found out he had cancer. He had to have surgery and I have spent about $4000.00 in total on him. Luckily the old guy pulled through everything and aside from his impaired eyesight and hearing (he's 14) he is a happy little pooch who still has a spring in his step believe it or not! All I can say, is definitely get a second opinion! Vets are people and unfortunately some of them just see dollar signs, and want to convince you to run every test under the sun on your pets so you have to watch out for those. And please don't worry about being a Debby Downer! If you can't vent on this forum, we might as well shut it all down. May I say, that I think you are doing amazing! Naturally you feel like holing yourself up in your bed with a bag of chocolate, but you didn't do that! I certainly wasn't strong enough to resist which is why I was away from the forum for about 2 months. My greatest goal is learning to deal with my emotions, without numbing myself with food. I think it's great that you can express yourself here because I am sure that it helps you resist that bag of chocolate.

Mern, yay! Nice to have you back and hope you enjoy your new Asics! I am definitely and Asics girl all the way! My Y is just a short walk away too.

Cassie, thank you! I did have a good week except for that big hunk of birthday cake on Saturday night. I am so jealous of your jetskiing this weekend! Glad you had a good time at the in-laws!

Main80, wishing you a great week!

Mike, Happy 4th to you too!
