Hi Annie,

We are still cold and snowy up here in the Poconos, but we didn't get a lot of snow from this system that came in last night. Maybe 3-4 inches. It is still very cold and dreary, though. There is hope! This coming week it's supposed to get into the high 30's and possibly the mid 40's here. I just want this stuff to melt and disappear. I am so DONE with winter.

Anyway, I was reading about your poor Riley. Besides taking him to the vet, I figure you've done a lot of online ready about his symptoms looking for answers. If you haven't already, you might want to check out:

I can imagine how frustrated you must be. Our pets are our family! Sighing!

Well, stay warm. Only 15 more days til Spring! Hurray!

Thanks Jane. This mystery illness of Riley's is really starting to wear me down. I never know what to expect from day to day and I don't know what the ultimate outcome might be...if this is a brain tumor, then I'd like to be prepared's terrible to have false hope that this is something like an injury or an illness that might eventually go away. Today is a good day; she's up and acting normally, but I know it's because of the prednisolone. I'm still not ruling out an injury...she had this weird bump on her head for a while that eventually went away. To my inexpert fingers, it SEEMED like it might have been following a suture line or a crack in her skull. The vet tends to rule out brain tumor simply because neither vet can see anythig strange going on with her eyes....they seem to think that a brain tumor would show up in some way in her pupil shape/size/dilation.

Yeah, we got hammered with this last least 9 inches of snow but I think it's more like a foot. Then, last night, bitter cold, my thermometer read MINUS 4 this morning. So this ain't going anywhere real soon. We are supposed to get into the 40s by Monday so maybe... I'm just so tired of this. It's one thing to have the snow and bitter cold in January or even early February, but March? I'm just dreading to see what I've lost in the way of garden plants. I thought last winter's freak frigid weather (the Polar Vortex) that took out some of my lavender and santolina, etc. was just that...a freak. So I did not think to cover or protect anything for this winter. I wont' do that fall, I'm covering everything that's even halfway susceptible.

Well, better get to those litter boxes.... they are getting a workout in this weather *HA*

The end is nothing, the journey is all.
