    And no, I'm not a psycho that would know that. I just happen to have a closet full of medical stuff :p

    heh ... ayup :)

    Mavjade is Tahiri, while I'm Han.

    It's an old joke from either an old social thread or an old story thread of mine...

    I'll take your word on it ;) I remember seeing that and being like "huh?"

    So, how is your was-then baby?

    Does anyone know of any children's books WITHOUT words?

    I should be writing, or reading, or watching the X-Files. But I'm not, I'm tired and stuff, and I blame you. *points randomly*

    :)

    my was-then baby? Are you talking about Daniel my 10 month old or Nathan my 4 year old? Well, actually, either way, they're both doing fine...

    And a children's book without words? Not really, and I'm not sure I'd buy one without them... Anything that won a caldecott award (Books-a-million list) has an emphasis on pictures over words, a prime example of that is Where the Wild Things Are



    *hangs head in shame* but it's such fun to make you tired and stuff an not writing or reading or watching tv... especially that last bit, tv tends to be useless... ;)

    Yeah, let's all point fingers at Kidan :p

    Well, wordless books are meant to teach kids to use their thinking skills to find out what the story is about *shrugs* I always had too much imagination, so I never needed them.

    Yes, Daniel! I remember you talking about him... he is too cute! :)

    :eek: So I right! Someone really is making me tired! :_|

    It's not on TV, I have all the episodes so I can watch them when I want.

    Also . . I keep getting disconnected for no reason. *stabs her internets* :(

    AF, there's a series of books about (I think) a black lab that doesn't have words. They all have the dog's name in the title, but I'm blanking on what his name is. :( Sorry if that's not actually helpful.

    No, that's okay. They're really hard to come up with.

    I've given up sleeping. It's just not going to work out.

    Spent all of last night and this early morning with my dog at the animal hospital. She's currently asleep on the floor behind me wearing her stylish cone-collar, green iv bandage and has a gauze tube shoved up her nose and stapled to her forehead. Oh the happy sleep of the medicated.

    No, if he was here, I'd probably want to hug him. He looks like the huggy sort :p Natural mamma instinct, I guess. Is he a handful?

    What's wrong with the dog, oqi?

    nosebleed for starters which lead to head x-rays.
    bloodwork upon my request/demands revealed diabetes.

    i bought her insulin this morning and a little glucometer. i've practiced with the needle sticks on myself and my husband so that they're nice and gentle. growing up on the ranch i knew how to do iv and im injections in horses and cattle, but i'm rusty. my brother gave me the diabetes pep talk and trade secrets from his human patients. we'll just make this part of our happy routine.

    Wow... I never thought about dogs and such having that, but I guess it is possible.

    Well, I hope your dog gets to feeling better! [:D]

    When do they expect reults from the X-rays? I know you must be more than anxious about it.

    diabetes is pretty common in older dogs and treatable. the nosebleed that the ER vet's "OMG it's teh cancer!!!" spiel was far more disturbing. after talking with my brother (who has treated thousands of ketoacidosis patients over the years) about the symptoms and reading him the charts, i feel ok about it all--not great, mind you, as i'd like for my girl to be well and healthy.

    edit: tuesday. i have the x-rays on cd-rom and have forwarded them to my brother. there's no "mass" just abnormality in the bone structure.

    Good luck with that.

    Day 1 of Mail Watch is here. My letter from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir about whether or not I made it to the next round of auditions is coming at some point during September. So, today, nothing in the mail.
