  1. My sunroof still works beautifully in my 15 year old Pilot with 230,000 miles haha. I guess didn't hesitate because of this.
  2. I am a sun lover so I love having a sunroof. I wouldn't have paid a bazillion dollars more for it but I like one and the cards seem to stack in such a way that I have ended up with one again. For us, leather and AWD were our non negotiables. If we had gone with the Subaru Ascent, the sunroof would have stacked a good bit on (but dear, have mercy me, they have an amazing panoramic sunroof that I drooled over), but with the Pilot you have to move into the EX-L for the leather and you automatically get a sunroof so ๐Ÿ™‚ This is why the Pilot was cheaper for us than the Ascent. The basic Ascent is cheaper than the basic Pilot but once you add on things like leather, etc. The Pilot gets cheaper.
  3. Since ya'll are better at solving my family's medical issue than doctors (๐Ÿ˜‚), let me throw this one out there for you. Yesterday evening one of my eyes started hurting really bad. The eyeball itself was hurting near the outer corner. I haven't gotten anything in it or had any injury. My initial thought was "oh no, I hope I am not getting pink eye". I woke up this morning in terrible pain. It hurts to blink, to move my eye, I have pain behind and around my eye socket (which has spread to my temple and brow as the day has progressed), and my eyelid is slightly swollen. The pain is intense and hasn't stopped at all and it has a slight burning (? right word?) sensation but not in the eyeball itself, rather all behind and around it. It is difficult to explain. It doesn't have any discharge, etc. I have had to wear sunglasses all day, even inside, because light makes it worse. I saw an eye doctor mid morning and she agreed that it doesn't look like a stye or pink eye (no discharge, redness isn't bad). She is treating it like a general infection for now. I started an oral antibiotic and some eye drops this morning. The doctor took images of the retina and everything looks normal. I am not truly convinced it is an infection but maybe it is? I got the feeling she is trying that because she is unsure what is going on. The pain is bad. Is there anything I need to be concerned about or has anyone here had a similar experience? Dr. Google hasn't really had any answers ๐Ÿคจ
  4. Did ya'll see the new Paddington 2? It was really cute as well. I loved Zootopia Sing, Incredibles 1 and 2, Enchanted...I will think of more after I've had coffee ๐Ÿ˜‚

    When he was diagnosed with crohns, did he start with biologics or something different? Of course, I am talking about in lieu of prednisone. Thanks

    So he had no adverse side effects from the Humira, it simply didn't work? I am sorry you went two years and it didn't even help ๐Ÿ˜ž DS needs it for crohns as well.
  7. What make is it? Our old Pilot with 15 years and 230,000 miles and would do a trip just fine. I think some people just get really weirded out after 150,000 or 200,000 miles but if it is a make that typically goes that long then don't sweat it.
  8. My boss's wife had a cat bite her in the leg. They almost had to remove her leg. She thought that it was no big deal at first but infection set in fast. She ended up in the hospital for a week, IV of antibiotics, etc. Please keep a very close eye on the bite.

    @Jann in TX Thanks so much for sharing your experiences. It is very helpful to hear people say that the benefits are worth the risks because we feel like we don't have much else to choose from. It is also good to know about the flu like symptoms because if he starts Humira and has that feeling we will it know it can come from the med. Sorry about the bone healing. That is bad ๐Ÿ˜ž. I am glad for modern medicine even when I am also afraid of the risks. Thanks for sharing โค๏ธ

    Have you or your spouse/children taken or are currently taking this drug? We are going to have to choose a treatment option. Things are just out of control for DS. Most likely it will have to be in the biologic/immunosuppressant realm. I am just looking for experiences - positive or negative. You can inbox me if you don't want to post it here. Honestly, I hate to say this but I am not really seeking opinions from people who have never really had experiences with it. I know that the risks are high. I am just not seeing another option right now. Thank you so much!
  11. We need the "I agree" emoji thingy back.
  12. Actually, if I remember correctly, you need to move up to the touring model for a 7 seater with captain's chairs. Maybe you can special order that way if it isn't touring? I only wanted an 8 seater (middle bench) so I never explored it.
  13. It has a middle bench. I think there are versions with captain's chairs like that? I can't remember. I know that the Ascent has that. I really like the bench in the middle personally, it fits our needs better. Mainly because there can still be 5 of us and the entire 3rd row laid down if necessary to carry luggage, etc.
  14. I traveled to a dealer not in our town to get the color I wanted in AWD & EX-L. I really wanted obsidian blue and it turns out finding it with both AWD and EX-L is not an easy task. I have always had silver and white vehicles and I was prepared to hold out if needed in order to have something different ๐Ÿ˜ Dh didn't really care, he just didn't want black (hot summers here). He likes my color choice though โค๏ธ I can attach a pic of a pilot the same color but it isn't mine.
