So Miss Dont-Get-Your-Hopes-Up can hopefully learn that she DOESN'T know everything and can't see into the future. And she should be relieved that I won't be back, because I sure learned my lesson from this.
Oh for goodness sake, can we cut the histrionics? Grow up.

I never told you that your hedgehog wouldn't recover. I said that if your hedgehog hadn't eaten in five days, you might want to prepare for that possibility. The reason I said that is because I've seen many cases in which that was the outcome. So, excuse me for giving you the courtesy of a heads up. Now, if you have any other issues with me, take it up with me in PM where I'll decide if you're even worth the energy of another response or if I'd just rather get on with my life.

That being said, I'm glad it was something treatable. I'm glad the prognosis is good. My opinion that you're really just extremely lucky stands.

Alright, thread's done. The hedgehog has been seen, conditions have improved, and hopefully the tests will come back with good results. Pixie, feel free to leave the forum if you want to. If you're going to stay, I repeat that it's not acceptable to yell at people because you don't like their response, particularly when they were not rude or malicious about it. As I already said, Mel said nothing wrong, given the circumstances. I'm closing this thread now as further argument on here won't serve any purpose. If one of the other mods disagrees, please feel free to open it back up.
