mousiebelle: Well, Cassie is at the vet. Her breathing didn't sound so great again this morning and I'd much rather have her see the regular vet than go see the e-vet over the weekend. They said they were going to do chest x-rays and let me know what they find. I'm worried... I'll let you know what happens.


We're all praying.. hope things go well...

John Buck 41: James72: syzygy whizz: James72, my heart goes out to you.

Alexander passed away peacefully yesterday, October 3rd, at 6:25pm.

He was such a good boy.

So sorry. Stay strong.


I am so sorry James. He was lucky to have staff as attentive and caring as you.

spinach gunk: John Buck 41: spinach gunk: John Buck 41: Hey, Spinach Gunk----how's the no-smoking going?
Meant to ask you in last weeks' thread but got in too late (early Tuesday AM). What's your MO? E-cigs? Chantix? Nicotine gum? Willpower/cold turkey?
Reason I'm so nosy is 'cos I'm (and Mrs. Buck) are both getting to that point.

Cold turkey. It was the right time. I knew I really had to be ready for it, and had to WANT to do it, and I was. The night before, I'd had a bad panic attack, and I think it knocked something loose in my brain.

I just tell myself if I really want to have one, I can. They're right there. But I don't have to. So I don't. Works better for me than telling myself straight out "no", so there's no feeling like I'm missing something.

I need a touch of extra caffeine to keep me going through the day, but otherwise, just distracting myself is usually enough.

*Semi-disclaimer*: I have been taking Wellbutrin for depression for several years. It is exactly the same drug as Zyban, just with a different name and different rules for prescribers. So, don't know if it's making the quitting easier, but thought I'd better mention it, because it really helps cut the cravings for some people.

Good luck to you and Mrs. Buck -- where there's a will, there's a way.

My dad smoked for a long time, at least 30 years. He'd tried patches, meds, the gum, nothing. He ended up quitting cold turkey when his older brother had to have a mass removed from around his lung. Wasn't cancer but the scare was enough he threw the pack away and hasn't touched them since. This was around 6 years ago or so.

Did have a lot of doublemint gum around for a while though!

George was like this Labor Day weekend. He had pneumonia but some antibiotics later, he was running around and farting like he usually does.

Yes, I said fart, He begs for you to pick him up and then he farts on you.

mousiebelle: We're home! Cassie seems to be feeling a lot better with the steroid injection. Hopefully between that and the antibiotic, this weekend will go smoothly. She was a very good girl & they didn't even have to sedate her to get the x-rays taken! She got treats for being soooo good! The specialist will get her x-rays tonight and will let me know Monday what he thinks. Really hoping it's just asthma (treatment is steroid injections?) and NOT her heart, which could cause these symptoms. Partially ruled out because "she's so young", though they said that about Lucy's cancer, too... Granted it's a different vet in a different state. I don't think I will handle it well if it's her heart......

The fuzzy patient in question:

[farm8.staticflickr.com image 375x500]


And her pouting counterpart:

[farm8.staticflickr.com image 375x500]

Lars is never happy with Cassie after she sees the vet. Though the vet's office here isn't as smelly, so he doesn't freak out nearly as much and gets over it much more quickly.


Don't laugh but Fink, one of my mom's cats, has asthma and they treat him with my inhaler. It was cheaper for me to give them one of my inhalers (I usually keep one up at their place anyways for emergencies in case I accidentally leave mine at home) and they told me just to give him a puff when he starts wheezing. Has a little mask for him to. He hates it but it works :)

Thanks for asking -- nearly 4 days now! The first few days weren't so bad, but today has been the worst. Alternating between "hulk smash!" and quietly weeping, lol. Caffeine is my friend.

Am hanging in there though. :)

Think it's fetal position behind the couch time... bbl.

He did that to me last night when I was trying to get around for bed. He does the Puss in Boots face and the "I'm so cute" poses. So I finally pick him up and start scritching his ears and chin. Then you hear this prolonged sound, like air escaping from a balloon squeal and I knew I had been played.

Cold turkey. It was the right time. I knew I really had to be ready for it, and had to WANT to do it, and I was. The night before, I'd had a bad panic attack, and I think it knocked something loose in my brain.

I had to have anterior spinal fusion of the 6th & 7th cervical vertebrae in 2002..
They actually go in through the front of the throat, shove everything aside, and work from the front.,
they then insert a thin slab of bone between the two vertebrae then screw a titanium "dog bone"
to the two vertebrae to hold stuff in place.

The bone fuses over time and becomes one big piece.
However, smoking prevents it from knitting together and it has to be re-done.
I quit two days before and never needed any other incentive other than not getting my
throat sliced open again. 

Hang in there Spinach, we're all pulling for you!

I quit 27+ years ago. Gradually reduced the areas where I allowed myself to smoke - work was the last place and there I just quit. Whole process took about a month. I had been smoking 3 packs a day. Watching one of my more favorite co-workers die of emphysema scared me into it. Took a long time before the cravings went completely away but they were manageable after about a month, if I recall correctly. I am so thankful I was able to quit that time, it wasn't my first try.

It takes a little experimentation to find the cig that works for you and a decent effort to wean completely off of tobacco.
I smoked for over 30 years. One day I just had enough and gave myself a choice...cold turkey or ecigs?
My decision was most definitely re-enforced by the dreaded "you have lung cancer" call from my doctor shortly after I started using ecigs. Fortunately it turned out to be benign. Unfortunately they took out 1/2 of my right upper lobe to remove it completely.

I wish Cretinbob would quit but he doesn't want to. It's been one of the biggest problems I have with him. He's lied to me for around 15 years about smoking to the point it's almost comical. He's insisted he wasn't smoking but I've found cigarettes in his pocket, in his car, he's hid them everywhere and I find them. He knows I hate smoking but he wants to smoke and doesn't care about what I think of it. He blames his smokey smell on other people. But I've seen him smoke, and he still denies it! Too funny.

At least he doesn't smoke in the house or in the car when I'm with him so he doesn't continue damaging my already damaged lungs.
