Re: Thyroid nodule?

kmarla, I'm sorry no answers and such a long wait. My dad had some digestive issues (that turned pretty severe - he lost 120lbs in 6 months) and he went from specialist to specialist and the gaps between visits seemed so long. I wish it wasn't that way. It makes you wonder how anyone gets properly (...

My buddy Hollis turned 9 on the 4th...looks like a puppy! ...and has the energy of one.

Re: Irishman dies from stubbornness and whiskey

Sounds like he lived a full life. And was funny as hell. Good for him!

We have a close friend with ALS. He's lost his voice but his sense of (inappropriate) humor still has us rolling.

Re: Job dust please?

Indy, sending continued dust. I really feel for you because I know how overwhelmed my husband was. This is not a lost cause.

Re: Bad dog!

I think I was mostly mad at myself for stupidly leaving the cookies out. :rolleyes: He was back in our good graces in no time and surely did NOT learn his lesson but hopefully I did and will be more careful in the future. He was seriously perplexed by my unreasonable behavior.

My kids decorated gingerbread men today and, like a total rookie, I left them on the table. Our Rhodesian Ridgeback, Hollis, quietly ate the most heavily decorated one - sprinkles, m&ms, gummies and icing piled high. I was so mad that I opened the back door and demanded he get out. He stood whin...

Anyone ever file a diminished value claim for a car accident? Long story short - I was rear ended while at a stop light on Saturday. The person behind be rammed in to me just as the light turned green. He said he wasn't paying attention and went as soon as he saw the opposing light turn red. Neither...

Re: Dust for my new rescue pup

Oh my! I'm so sorry! I hope he turns a corner soon. Have they given you any idea of prognosis? Or it's just wait and see?

This puppy was so lucky to end up with your family. He probably didn't even have a chance otherwise.
