phylo's new accessory

poor baby phylo got a bad cut yesterday that required 10 stitches to close. the good thing is that no tendons or muscles were damaged so he'll heal up pretty quick. the other good thing is the awfully cute bandage the vet put on him! purple and blue polka dots...i'm sure phylo doesn't appreciate it half as much as i do :o)

for surgery he was given anesthesia which made him really lethargic the whole rest of the day. and he didn't want to drink any water - even hours later. so i bribed him by putting some splashes of chicken broth in his water dish. it worked! he drank a really good amount. i think i got the idea from j's mom when she said that to get the kids to drink their milk with dinner she would let them put pepsi in the milk (ewww!). they dubbed it 'pilk'.

easy way to do something good

i just heard about this a few days ago on npr...clicking on web pages that support different causes, such as protecting land in the amazon rainforest, or support for the breast cancer research fund. all you do, literally, is click on the links provided at the site ( and they do the rest - no cost to you except a few seconds. i'm bookmarking it and will try my best to save as much rainforest land as i can by clicking on the site each day i'm on the computer. the link is here.
