Poodle Pancreatitis

I missed everything Tuesday. I missed most of the afternoon Sunday, all of Monday and everything Tuesday too. I missed the LA Auto Show and I missed driving Toyota’s Mirai, the new Fuel Cell Vehicle. I missed out on participating in my own life because I have a poodle with pancreatitis. In case you were wondering pancreatitis is diagnosed with four hours spent at the vet’s office and $387.
