We lost our sweet Riley today

He had surgery three weeks ago to remove his spleen. Turns out it was cancerous. He started going down hill this morning and we knew there was nothing more we could do.

He was a beautiful, smart, sweet German Shepherd Dog and we loved him immensely. If I knew how to post a photograph of him (neither click-and-drag, nor copy-paste works), I would.

Our fur babies help to make the world a kinder place. If you are fortunate to have one in your life, please give it a hug from me because I can't do that at my house any more.

Kavanaugh - I feel violated all over again

Rachel just played a portion of the hearings from last fall. I had almost forgotten how vile he was and how sick I felt at the time. How far out standards have fallen that this hideous man is a Supreme Court Justice.

Two Tickets for Rachel's Book Tour in SF Available

I purchased two tickets (which include copies of her new book) for the book tour event in San Francisco on Sunday, October 6 at 7 pm and I won't be able to go

My husband's surgeon had a cancellation and he had his back surgery a month early. So I can't go see my HERO, Rachel Maddow.

The event is totally sold out. If any DUers would like to purchase the tickets from me, I will be happy to sell them. They are $59 each (again, it includes a copy of her book).

You can PM me or just respond to this post.

Did I say already??

Looking for some assistance with being a care-giver

This will not be a long term issue, but my husband just came home from the hospital after back surgery. I'm massively apprehensive about this and not entirely sure how I will manage. I just rented a walker for him, but his mobility is fragile. I'm not sure how to deal with bathroom issues and sleeping. He tends to need to use the toilet in the middle of the night, so I don't know how to deal with that either. Fortunately, while he was in the hospital I got two good nights of sleep. Figure I won't have another one of those for a while.

I'm just so worried about his falling and how to cope with all of this. We are lucky that this will be a short term problem, but today has me freaked out!

Anybody on DU dealt with this kind of thing?

Thank you friends.
