Both Pilau and Dante first showed slight heart murmurs around the age of 5 or 6, and were on heart meds by the age of 8/9. Pil continued on to 13 1/4 and Dante is still going.

UT I am so sorry.
She's being treated and if she continues to be well than she's still having a good life.

Yes, she had her murmur diagnosed at 8 and they said she would probably make 10 or 11. Now she's 12. They say 10% of dogs become cardiac patients. I'm just hoping the various drugs keep her going for some time.

It's much better news that she's a heart patient than a brain patient. When Bean started having seizures he had only two weeks left.

Sorry to hear about Pearl, UT. Let's hope the meds add many more years for her.

man, that must have been so scary. I'm glad she's gotten a less serious diagnosis and that she has you and the rest of her family taking good care of her.

Hang in there Pearl!

Dead cat in the road on the way to the school bus. Hector saw it too :( poor kitty

Felt exceptionally grim yesterday.
Threw up twice at school then more after I was sent home.
Felt so nauseous all day - I sat up until 23.00 despite being shattered, because I worried if I lay down it might start off my coughing again, and if I coughed I'd puke.

Less nausea today but still not convinced I'm not going to hurl.
Had a cup of tea this morning, and two dry crackers an hour ago.
Aside from that it's just been water.
I have very bloodshot eyes today.

Poor me.

Poor Sundae :(

Sure you're not pregnant? hehe

Sundae 02-21-2012 06:23 AM

Unlikely without sperm...

glatt 02-21-2012 07:51 AM

Sorry Sundae. You can blame it on the kids. Filthy creatures. :)

There's been a bout or Norovirus going around my son's elementary school. Many of the teachers have huge jugs of hand sanitizer on their desks.

Sundae 02-21-2012 09:05 AM

Silly thing is this hit me on Monday. BAM!
I'd been on half term break and was really looking forward to getting back, as I was getting on Mum's nerves.

And yes, Norovirus was suggested to me.
My niece and nephew both had it over the hols. But I couldn't have caught it from them either, as we didn't see them.

Just a random encounter.
Without sperm.

As my cow orker said "they're dropping like flies." We've had people out sick a lot lately, me included.

We probably get it from students, then it passes through the office where we are packed in like sardines. Snotty-headed creepy sardines.

You can tell people to stay home when they're sick, all the really cool health organizations say that, and they'll even tell us that here at work, but there's some kind of weird honor in dragging yourself into the office. Unless what you have going on that day can make or break the world (or you don't have sick days and need the money and I feel for those people because I've been there) stay home so you don't pass it around, for pete's sake.
