    Loonlover, my condolences.  I've been through this too many times but realize it's part of the deal and that we have to be grateful for all the love that our furballs have given to us.

    Thanks to everyone for the sympathy and condolences.  I agree it is part of the deal when "owning" animals and always believe it is worth it.

    Do you take vitamins?  Waaay back in the early '70s, I came down with a cold no more than a week before leaving for a ski vacation in Switzerland.  Went to the local druggist and asked what I could do.  He asked if I took vitamins.  No.  He said take four multis per day to get rid of it, then two per day.  Cold was gone by the time I left.  Have taken two multis (cheapies) every day since.  I very rarely get colds, etc.

    I say go for the knee replacement as soon as you can - the difference is amazing and you can be pain free.

    Intinst, I second that...  also because the recovery phase and PT will be easier now than at 75.

    The question is, how long will it take to recover to the point of doing my job, i.e. Carrying furniture up and down stairs of the aircraft, some of it weighing one to three hundred pounds.

    Loonlover, so sorry about your loss.  Glad that you had 9 wonderful years to enjoy her, too.

    My thump is more bad news about my mom's dog...  she got a second opinion and looks like there is nothing to be done.  He's been given 2-3 months to live.  Hard to believe since he still acts like nothing is wrong.  He has been a total joy to play with and love.  He will REALLY be missed and my parents are gonna be so hurt when he goes.  :(

    I'm going to have to stop reading this thread. I get too sad any time I read about others losing their cherished four-legged family members and being reminded how little time is likely left for me with Noggin (who's now 11).

    I'm in awe of your technical abilities. I have to spend hours with tech support...with them doing all the work so I shouldn't complain. :)

    Good luck.
    Thanks. In this case it is not so much technical abilities as running the virus software, following instructions on the virus software site, and being paranoid. ;)

    Update: Part of the cleanup of the computer required booting from the start up CD and using the Recovery Console to manually delete 300+ files and directories; each one had to be identified individually. This was followed by editing the registry. Not fun but I think I was successful. I am waiting for the final scan to finish. I will know tomorrow if it is a "clean" computer. ;)

    Second update: STILL not a clean computer; grrr!

    STILL fighting viruses on DH's computer! It turns out there were several. I think I have it down to two. Taking a break from virus fighting until after we take the granddaughters back to their mom. (This is partly Thump >:( and Bump ;D. )

    Don't "thump" yourself!  :D

    My thump is a woman, fellow Bible study student, who doesn't understand why I love to use my Kindle Bible instead of a DTB for class.......  She questions me about it every week even though she has no apparent interest in buying/using one.

    My thump is the headaches I've had the past two days because of the work going on from early AM to 4PM on the roof.  This really needs to be done, but the drilling noise is excruciating.  My apt. is on the top floor, so it's right over me.  (Went out as soon as I could, of course.)

    my thump is the weather.  It's snowing right now and when it snows or rains, the change in pressure gives me migranes.  It's hard to be a mom or wife when you can't stand up w/out the world spinning or being nauseas.

    My cat (the evil Achmed that I talk about from time to time) woke me up this morning when she ran across my face. I'm not quite sure why she did it, I think maybe another cat was chasing her. Either that or she decided to rip my nose off. Luckily, she missed my eye.   

    Here's a most unflattering picture:
