Donna, I am sorry your are having to go through all of that. I had to have a colonoscopy because I turned 50 and was seeing red blood too. I had to have some polps removed and what was causing the bleeding is hemmoroids. I hope it is just that. **** I am still bleeding -they told me manage it change in diet and suppositories or have surgery. Yuck.
I wish we were closer to each other! I know what you mean about not wanting another dog. After years of having one dog at a time, I didn't think we'd ever have two at at time. But now that we do, it is almost easier - really! A built in playmate and no guilt when you leave the house with out them! Every time I watch them interact I say a silent "I'm sorry" to Alvin for not getting him a friend.
