Thanks and apologies

Postby skypup » Tue Apr 01, 2014 5:29 am

To everyone here I owe thanks. To some I owe apologies. I offer them both, with a hope that I have fewer reasons for apologies as I continue on.

Edited: no, no, there's no drama, sorry if it sounded like that! Just wanted to say thanks and sorry... And not have things unsaid. So sorry if it sounded like drama. Lol!

No, no, nothing like that. It's only that over time I have been human and not perfect, and just want to say what needs to be said. Maybe it's being incurable, but I don't want to leave things undone. Not that I'm going anywhere soon!

Yikes !! I just looked up the pain scale, and saw that 7 to 8 on that scale is in the severe range. It's understandable that you haven't been around much lately. Anyway, It's really nice to see you back again, and I sure hope the docs can figure out a way to effectively manage your pain on a long-term basis.

Take care -- and I hope your pup is doing OK and giving you lots of good companionship these days.
