Suji Update and Car Stuff [Jul. 3rd, 2015|04:48 pm]
The xrays on my Old Man dog showed that it was actually an injured joint capsule, lots of arthritis, and possibly a lipoma growing under the muscle. None of that is "good" but it's all better than what I feared! After a low dose of a short acting steroid injection and a day of sleep, Suji seemed to feel much better, and the swelling is way down. YAY!

This time of year is usually Anime Expo in LA. It's a trip that I look forward to, and this year was going to be Awesome. 5 minutes into our journey, we were rear ended bad enough that the trunk would no longer close, effectively making our car unusable for bringing our stock with us on the trip. Renting a car was going to cut too deeply into the profits (though in retrospect, I wonder if the other driver's insurance company could have been made to pay for the full 2 weeks of rental we would have needed...). Leaving for 2 weeks, with another trip the following weekend, would have also made it pretty impossible to get things taken care of with the car, so we opted to cut our losses and stay. We got the call on Tuesday that they other insurance company found the damage to be > than the worth of the car, so they have offered a decent amount for it and towed it away. Today we went car shopping! We've settled on a sparkly white 2012 Nissan Rogue. (We were driving a 2004 Toyota Corolla, and honestly, we were right on the edge of having outgrown it with our traveling inventory.) Hopefully, we'll get the check by Tues of next week and will have the car by that night!
