Well folks I'm back after a week of comp. troubles then a condition I had forgotten about until it hit me again just a few days ago. I have reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD). I don't know too much about it except it always sets itself up in my food and is very painful so at the current moment I am sporting a moonboot and doing desenthasizing routines to help the condition to go in remission until then its just a bunch of pain and irritation. Jack is doing well, he is off the prednisone and still ambulatory though not as wobbly. Jill is getting along well without him there all the time seeings how hes still crated with 5 weeks to go and he is being quite good about that. He does have his moments when the barking seems non-stop but all in all he doesn't bark long and he is doing much better. Again, if you want to help with his surgery go to paypal.com click on send money and type in fleet765 anything you can give would be a great help, thanks folks and have a good day.
