    LOL, there's lots of weird stuff going on lately on this site!
    Thanks for all ideas but I can't leave food out with meds in it. L&L will eat each other's food. Also, can't chance that he'll get a small bit of the pill, but not all of it. I never know which food he's going to agree to eat and sometimes, I'm on my hands and knees hand feeding him until he's had enough. I'll just keep putting it down his throat.

    Right now though, I don't even believe that's my biggest problem. The inflammation on the salivary gland hasn't gone down enough, I believe. I'll call the doc today and see what he says. I know they can't drain it or do much with it for various reasons.

    Thanks and hugs,
    Nancy, L&L with special head bonks to B&T

    P.S. Yes, you're right...I would have worried myself sick. I knew I couldn't go no matter what was said to me, but I'm grateful for my Manager's support and kindness.

    I love the jack-o-lantern you made. I have talked myself out of buying a pumpkin this year. I pass lots and lots of farms on my trips to see our aging parents but never stop. So I'll just enjoy them on Spark People.

    I'm going to try doing our morning walk in a few minutes. I'm not fond of walking in the dark anymore but maybe we can do most of the walk before daybreak and gunshots. Poor little Molly is just so scared and she believes it best to be home. I don't know the history of her first three years in life so I don't know where the fear came from.

    Congrats again on the loss of a pound and on your commitment to losing. I seem stuck in a plateau but I also don't think I've been trying very hard. You're my hero, Judy!!

    Hope you can get through the grading soon!! I'm back at Dad's today. I'm such a bad influence for him. Even as we clean things out of the house, he and I stop at garage sales and buy more. He loves it though.

    Hi, yes...salivary gland is still swollen, but dr seemed happy with the progress. yesterday he took well to eating the small meals. I just give him around a teaspoon at a time. Of course, I can watch him better over the weekend and feed him every couple of hours. You know how stressful this all is, but I feel better since my manager let me of the hook for the conference...He's been so kind through it all. Monday I'm to call the vet and we'll reassess and see if I should bring him back in...or stop/cut back dosage on the appetite stimulating pills if he's eating... I hate all these meds. I read about all the potential terrible side effects, but sometimes there's no alternative.

    I'm going to meet a friend for a late lunch and coffee today. I know she'll pick my spirits up.

    Hugs to you and B& T
    From me, Lily and my poor sick boy, Louie

    Not doing well. Only licking a bit of baby food from my fingers. Stayed under bed all afternoon and night. Came out this morning but still not eating. Found out dr is retiring and only in office a few hours a week. Not sure what to do. Feeling pressure from this dreaded Conference but I'm not going to do anything drastic unless it's time, even if I have to cancel the trip at risk of my job...

    I'll have to check it out when Tim's not around. Otherwise he'll give me one of these:

    Then again, you never know. I've got him watching sci fi.
