she's back now.
thank you...thank you all so much for your help.
i need to keep this short because my head feels awful and i'm getting blood on the keyboard, but i just wanted to let you all know she's okay. okay-ish. she's terrified, but i'm going to make sure she's okay. don't worry.
again...thank you all so much. if you hadn't calmed her down...i couldn't have done it without you.
i'll post again later.
