lilyspad: sherpa18: Meanwhile, I had to have more medical tests/xrays/blood work done today, and I went back to the lab that did my last blood draw (as I was so impressed that I could not even find a blood drop on my arm the next day I went to shower, much less a black&blue or hematoma).

I had the same tech today, and when I got done complimenting her on her skills as she prepared to get my blood, she just stared at me and said I jinxed her.

Sure enough, she was right, she couldn't get blood to draw from her first stick in my left arm, and had to go to my right arm (hence why I have gauze/bandages on both arms right now). She was still good with the second stick, would definitely go back again :o)

Poor honey....I'm sorry you had to get stuck twice! Hope you don't bruise.

Nope, no bruising at all when I got up this morning, I can barely spot a pinprick on each arm even now - this woman is good.

bobug: I walked out of the doctor's office on Monday, feeling horrible and nauseated and exhausted. My hand on the knob to the lobby, and I said "I haven't felt right for five months. I keep coming, and just do not feel right."

You just nailed my problem on the head. I know something is wrong, but as I bounce from Dr. to Dr. and test to test, I feel they are treating the symptoms, but not finding the underlying cause. It's frustrating in the extreme.

Look what I just found Khaleesi facing off against on the patio.  Odd breed of cat that is.......😜🕉

I noticed Mrs. K was acting weird out on the patio, sitting in a weird statue pose about 3 feet away from the little booger, but didn't think much of it.


You're so lucky to have a possum!! I recently learned that they consume ticks by the boatload!! They have many other good qualities too but I want one for tick reduction.
Hope kitty was nice to him (her?).

If things ever go back to near the old normal, we may stop by on the way back from a trip to Boston.  (We used to do that when we lived in another state and one of my inlaws lived near one.)

I love her SO MUCH that I'm going to name her and  buy her something fancy yet affordable for her name day. Name suggestions welcome. Please keep the somewhat justified judgment of me being a complete dumbass  who thought my car was damn near $10K more than a comparable gas powered model *only* because of the hybrid engine to a minimum. I kinda figured that out last week.

I have a Hyundai Elantra ELE/coupe, and I love it, too. His name is Pookie, because he's manly, and that's a manly name :) My husband has a Velostar, which I call the Velociraptor.

Djelibeybi: ponsonby: valnt9: I did a "taxi" run today that paid $5. that is very good, since I gave the mean vet $60 on Wed leaving me $1 in my wallet and $9 in my checking acct. I'll be able to get gas for my hungry car on the next taxi run.
the vet determined my cat has plasmacytic stomatitis. I kinda had that pegged as to why Bree was bleeding from her mouth. this is the 3rd cat I've seem with this condition, ALL in GA. the other 2 were much more severe and were helped to the bridge to alleviate any more suffering. I thought I was gonna loose Bree, too. But if caught early it can be treated with steroid shots. Bree will now get a steroid shot every 3-4 weeks for the rest of her life. $$$! PS is an autoimmune malfunction that attacks any soft tissue. they don't know why it happens and there is no cure. steroids reduce the inflammation, temporarily, hence the shot every 3-4 weeks.
so, all in all it is good. other than gas I lack nothing. we will survive, Bree, too.

So sorry Bree is sick..  Can we help with Bree's injections?  Do you have a paypal account>

What he said - you know the routine around here, valnt9 - don't make us start another CATFIGHT!!!


Didn't I already win this week's fight with my SUPERB RHPS gif response? :)

I feel sorry for you.  I live within 5 miles of 4 different Wegmans, 1 is within walking distance.  Corporate headquarters are within that 5 miles too.  Despite their reputation I like shopping elsewhere at times.  There are things that they don't carry but the Big M or Rennoldson's do carry.

[Fark user image image 473x470]


sometimes, it is about refusing a platitude. That guy had me on my way out the door. He ignored that I had been on steroids off and on for 5 months, had lost 40 pounds WHILE on steroids, and was throwing up constantly. In his defense, AIHA is pretty rare, and he didn't know the antibiotic he gave me was the precisely WRONG thing to give me, and made hemolysis amp up to 100.

If your doc doesn't listen, find one who will, and say you are sick of being turfed. *hugs* If you need help finding docs in your area, or calling for appointment availability, let me know. We can work it. That is how I found my current doc. I called, and said I am allergic to most antibiotics and have AIHA, and wanted a doc who was not afraid to treat me, and didn't ignore or dismiss me when I went in. I found an AMAZING doc. She even goes to the CDC site and checks whether more immunizations are recommended for me, and emails me about it. They are out there.

Sadly, the last hand me down camera is now acting up worse than prior (it's a low grade to begin with).  So no new Monarch or kitty shots from me until I save up for something because all the indoor shots are...weird, to say the least.  And not in a fun way, just in a "did you sneeze when you took the picture?" sort of way.

Our worst flea season ever is finally getting a bit better.  Poor Lady Sylvie often looks like a shaved straight haired poodle that triumphed in a death match pit, she's been chewing and over cleaning so much.  She also has been iffy about combings and wipe downs.  I can only do it for ten minutes at a time max before she fusses and runs away if she even lets me.  =(

The boys have been mostly ok since the first burst caught us by surprise, but they're both black with multiple coats and she's white with a single long coat, and I've actually seen them leap from the boys to her if she's nearby.  She's fine the first two weeks after the topical, then it starts all over again and it's too risky to overdose her by doing another early.  I'm still dusting the floors with baking soda, which has been helping  (We have hardwood throughout, so they fall/hide in the cracks).  I already put a steam cleaner into next year's budget, as the little one I have for clothes apparently just ain't doing enough.  I never want to have her go through this again.

On the other cat front, we currently have four in chrysalis in one keeper.  In another keeper, one fifth instar is scouting--so likely will be in chrysalis soon.  I moved a now fourth instar to the keeper the single fifth is in, and the last Monarch cat just turned third instar.  I have found no new eggs since last I wrote, so the current third will be our last for this year.

The good news is out of the second clatch, so far ZERO deaths.  It's a bitter relief, because as I've mentioned, even my first year I did better than this year.  I know part of it is the low overwinter count + erratic weather, so I'm taking what victories I can.

Hopefully all of them eclose healthy and can fly away.  *fingers crossed*

Here's a pic from a previous year release at least (yes, same camera as mentioned above):

We're in the "There be Dragons" area of MA (aka north central).  Our small city is actually listed as a food desert, and we pay more for groceries than any other city in MA.  The "closest" Wegmans to us is Northborough.

We used to have a Stop n' Shop when we first moved here, but they had to close it down shortly after we moved because we also have a Hannaford's.  Now they're owned by the same company so anti-competition something-or-other-excuse, but our Hannaford's is teeny tiny and mostly caters to the urban poor than, say, the Hannaford's just over the border in NH.  I forget which chain took over the Price Chopper for a short while, but they didn't even last a year.  There's a Tractor Supply there now.

Our only other alternative is a Price Chopper, which recently converted an entire aisle to alcohol, which further cut down offerings even before the still empty shelf problems of the Pandemic panic buyers.  (Yes, there were no paper towels just this week.  It's still a problem here.)  Oh, and Wallyworld, but...we don't go there if we can help it.  Especially since the pandemic.  (Politically speaking, we're a purple town).
