Sounds like not a good outcome, have you shot it?

You're welcome for the help.

You were not bothering anyone.

With your description of bone shards, I didn't think it would be. Sorry to hear.

At least you were willing to try. Maybe the next one will be healthy and do well for you.

Loretta, we really appreciate how you conducted yourself here. You were a first time poster but were truly looking for advice, you answered questions when asked and kept us updated on how things were going. We get so many first time posters looking for advice but don't seem to stick around to even see the first reply. We enjoy helping people if we can but do like to hear of the outcome good or bad. Sorry that your outcome was bad but sometimes it is a relief to get a definite answer, you know that there was nothing more you could have done.
