Hi Deb and Tracy,
i have to say right now i am praying that this all turns out well for Parsley and for my fiance and myself. i do not even know what to believe..or what to think. all the possibilities you both mentioned are certainly viable ones..i'd thought of many of them also. i only really want that Parsley be truly healthy and recuperated enough if she had been ill..to safely move on to her forever home. and then that brings on the point of her age and i really don't have the first clue there or her readiness in that way to leave her siblings..as i firmly agree with everyone on that point..but as u mentioned..it is not really up to me..as i do not want to lose her..i will do everything i can to keep her comfortable , warm, secure, loved, and well taken care of in the absence of her siblings at such a young age. though i would have provided all of the above at any age.
The woman said she would get back to me later in the week..maybe i should email her so i can know what's going on..so then i can then make that appointment with the vet..or else it will be too late to set one up immediately for same day-i'm hoping one will be available on that day. also depends on if i am picking parsley up at this woman's home..and where she lives..how far from me..or if she is bringing her to me and what time as to whether i can make a vet appointment that day or have to wait for the next day.
i guess for me..i didn't feel comfortable with a rescue situation last time and this turned out to be same thing..where it is email rather than phone call and yes i understand why that is..and actually with some of the same people too...and i am getting i feel some of the same what feels to me like double talk..different answers at different times..isn;t that what it sounded like what i said..one second one age..next a different age..one minute she has parvo and next she never had symptoms. my head is spinning. one minutes she needs her to be with her for at least two weeks now she is ready to come home with me. i'm sorry..i really thought i was dealing with petsmart and then the humane society..this just turned out very different all together..but i do want parsley very much and so am doing my best to deal with a situation that i am quite uncomfortable and can't quite make heads or tails out of the info i get. as you say maybe she has a house full of dogs and needs the space so she is sending Parsley on to me a bit earlier than planned.
Tracy , thanks for asking hon, i did go to the doc on monday, and though i told her my med did nothing for my fibromyalgia pain whatsoever..she wanted to increase it..i did not agree with her...so i called my neurologist and made an appointment for this coming friday ..he is the one who diagnosed my fibromyalgia and ordered the cymbalta and had the other doc monitoring it inn the first place. he was very nice and very helpful. i want him to order lyrica for me. and at same time slowly decrease my cymbalta to get me off that. u can not just all of a sudden stop taking cymbalta u would have adverse reactions. but u can begin something else at same time u are slowly decreasing it. with the cymbalta it had said that it was supposed to show some improvement within one month,.i saw none..and actually i felt wose pain than before..and so why increase it..i think i gave it enough of a trial.and i had already gone up three times in dose. i was up to 90mg and research says that more than 60mg does no more than a higher dose. but that doc was like talking to a wall so i went above her head. as my own advocate. i'd researched cymbalta myself and i researched lyrica too. i used to be a registered nurse. i only keep an inactive license now..new jersey..as i am a disabled veteran..i no longer am allowed to work due to receiving compensation benefits from the military ,etc and really with various problems i am unable to work so they are right, but i miss it . i last worked as a nurse in 1997. somehow though u never lose that urge to research things. and i miss the patient care the most.and my organization skills were a strong factor of mine so it worked in my favor too. things are so different today..very technical..Patient care is done more by the aides. nurses are in and out in a few minutes..really don;t spend much time with the patients often. they come in do a t reatment and they leave. or they get consents.
welll i think i got off the track here didn;t i? ha ha ha. wow, it's been a long time since i've talked about that. probably wrong place -sorry..
anyway, i will keep you posted i am going to email and see what update as far as what's going on with PARSLEY and when and if she is actually ready for coming home saturday or what. i will let you know when i do know.
have a wonderful night. God Bless, hugs, xoxo, Mindy
