i hate this freaking thing! so do not expect very long or frequent posts, thx curt, i would appreciate it if you can come and look at the computer,,,i think the problem is with the moniter.

the only really important thing i wanted to share with you is wilma is not well.
when christine, michelle and i went in to put them to bed, wilma was having trouble getting up. when we looked closer, it looked like she had a puncture wound on her swollen back leg but i could not even fathom, one of the dogs in there biting her.

when we soaked it and looked closer, it is actually a growth, and it looks like it is growing from inside think she has a tumour on the bone of her leg that has grown outwards to the surface.

just in case it is a cellulitis unrelated to the growth i can see..i have started her on antibiotics, given her a large dose of tramadol for pain and will get her into the vet tomorrow for an xray and a real diagnosis,,not just my best guess.

anyway..fingers crossed that i am wrong and this is something easy to fix.

love you wilma.

i will check on her frequently tonight.



Thanks for the reminder about Turtle Gardens and Aviva. It's so easy to lose track of voting every day so a reminder every so often is great.


Yay, Turtle Gardens! We must keep voting for them though, to keep them in 1st place!

Don't forget the second round of voting for Turtle Gardens on the Aviva website starts today.


Oh no!!... Poor Wilma, she is such a sweetheart.

I hope it is not a tumor and will keep her in my thoughts and prayers .

The Animals at Saints are so lucky to have a nurse who lives with them full time . I am glad Wilma pain is being controlled..

Lets hope after the vet exam it is positive news for Wilma.

Please keep us posted ..


Carol, I actually have a used 20" widescreen here. I can bring that with me tomorrow as well. What time? I was also thinking about the laptop too. I am sure you have my email as phone reception sucks where I am right now

If you can hook up a keyboard to your laptop - it might make it a little easier to work on. I am a total loser on those stupid laptop keyboards. I have to have a regular human person's keyboard hooked up to my laptop.
