The weirdest thing is the dude is in this thread and no one seems to notice.

Ha! and I thought I was at the bottom for usually playing through the game with between 15-18 vitality.
If you're at Sen's you'll have a bit of a ways to go before facing the Anor Londo boss, which is the point you'll want to be prepared for. If I were you I would: 1. put the next 5-7 levels into Vitality. 2. Then start putting points into Dex to get more damage as the Anor Londo boss can be tough and you don't want too draw the battle out too much.
After Anor Londo the enemies don't get significantly stronger so you can just leisurely get your Vit upp to where you're comfortable. You should try to max Dex at some point unless you want even more Stamina. Are you using any specific rings that you are attached to? Otherwise, if you didn't get it earlier, you'll be able to get the Ring of Favor and Protection in Anor Londo.
This is pretty much what I ended up doing. My VIT is 17 now I think. I was able to beat S&O with Solaire, killing Ornstein last. I ended up running out of flasks and having to go in and equip humanity in the middle of the second part of the battle to heal more haha.
I've been wearing Blue Teadstone (extra DEF at low HP) and Ring of Steel Protection (extra Physical DEF) to balance out my low HP. I think at this point I'm past relying on them though. I pick the ring you mentioned right before doing the boss, so I hadn't looked at it yet. Sounds pretty good, I might roll with that from now on. Is it good enough to give up a ring slot permanently though?
Edit: Oh, and I'm not building for PVP at all. I can't even get the game online right now. I think it has to do with GFWL.
I'm really familiar with the early sections and enemies, so I ignored vit entirely. I've probably died under 20 times up to this point. I feel like I might be able to get away with it through Sen's, but I'm not as confident about AL.
If you like the smaller shields, I'd switch to a Heater; same as the Hollow, but with 5 more Fire Def and 2 less Stability at +15, while weighing 1.5 less.
Otherwise, get some Vit.
I'm under the penalty for weight as is it, though I do have a Heater.
Your upgrades look like you're already on the right track. You may be able to upgrade your pyro a little more right now but really you seem fine. You mainly will probably want more VIT so you don't get 1 shotted when you do get hit.
Yeah I feel pretty good about how I'm built right now. I've mostly been using pyro in certain situations, like if I can't single out some of the tougher enemies. I guess VIT is what I'll go for now, as I suspect I'm going to hit a point soon where I can't avoid nearly all damage.
After getting up to Andor Londo on my first playthrough, I found I hadn't specialized enough to be doing as much damaged. So I decided to start over and do a more focused run. I picked pyromancier and decided to build for dex.
Pyro Flame +4

I'm about to start making my way through Sen's Fortress and at this point I'm not really sure what I should be focusing on. Any tips or suggestions?
Honestly I've gotten a lot less comfortable shooting cops in video games. Any mission that ends up with a shoot out with the cops has me wishing I could have the option to try and sneak/run away. I'm not totally sure why I've started to feel like this.
I assume so. Bought the season off Steam a few days ago. Everything else seems right as far as previous choices, it's just this one thing. I've tried wiping the save and using an older one, same thing happens. Carley is there until the part after the drug store, and then Doug shows up.
I guess I'm just going to have to live with it, but I would have liked to see the story out with Carley.
So, tried to play EP 3 today, only to have the game crash and my saves stop working. I found a fix, and was able to start again from the very end of EP 2. Everything seemed good until a few minutes into EP 3, when Doug showed up (I saved Carley). The thing is, Carley was present in EP 2, and in the previously on at the start of 3.
I'm not sure why this happened, and I don't really want to seek out info for fear of spoilers. Is think a known bug/problem? Anything I can do?
