nettle, what if you put a pill in a spoonful of something slidy, like yogurt or apple sauce or something? I learned that trick in nursing school for people who had trouble swallowing pills.
livingsky, that really sucks. I hope you can get it straightened out and don't have any last-minute surprises.
amandabee, hoping that your son can fight the staph without too much intervention. And that your prof will grant you some more time for your paper!
mamamash, how's your pup today? We have an 11 year old Lab that is coping with arthritis/limits to her mobility that have been a bit tough. Sending good vibes for good news at your vet appointment (and your own appointment!) on Friday.
Rotavirus still hanging tough here...but today is a better day. DS pooped the bed twice last night (and had a night terror to boot), but things seems to have slowed down. He can keep down some chicken stock and Pedialyte today, and is currently eating a smidge of rice. Fingers crossed this is the beginning of the end, and DH and I stay well.
