Also, don't apologize if it ever happens that you get to drive the Karma bus (that would be if you had sent STBXH the higher bill) because, hey, you have to do your part in providing a bit more balance to the universe.
The first Doggie ER place stabilized Max. That bill for the pain meds and blood work will be coming in for your STBXH to pay too, right?
I LOVE my dogs, and I would have done exactly as you did, racing to the Doggie ER Animal Hospital etc. I would have sold a kidney to save my dogs!
SO GLAD to read Max is doing better! I know sometimes the vets will work with you on a payment plan, but I'm so glad about your neighbor's daughter/vet tech/another hospital.
I am so glad you blasted your STBXH. Some people are so dense it takes a blasting to get through the concrete that is their brain!
I love my dogs! Faithful, brave, loving... people could take a page from their book and be better for it.
As for all of his texts/emails/whatnot....he's with Shrek. He gets *crickets* unless the communication is absolutely necessary......
In my effort to be *concise*, I often come off as blunt and harsh. Sorry, don't mean to be offensive.
Also agree that hell would freeze over before anyone would separate me from my fur babies!
