Thanks for the support ladies, and sorry for venting here. As badly as I want to help this pup, I know it's an added responsibility I can't handle. He was adopted as a puppy from the same shelter I got my dogs from; it's a no-kill shelter and I know that they will always accept their own dogs back, so I'm going to talk to my husband about that last night.@mccurleya Hope Nate's feeling better soon!@DDRRT1982 @sgrn18 Not a novel suggestion, but have you looked into any nursing positions in schools near you? I don't know what field of nursing you're both in specifically, but schools do tend to offer good benefits (in my experience) and it means your schedule, if you have to go full time, would mirror your kids'.@sgrn18 Yay to crawling!!!
