Busy-ness Takeover

Star here taking over for the moment. So mom has been busy on the phone and searching the web and basically being too busy to blog. Ok, she has kind of a good excuse. Her dad, Sir Moose-a-lot's daddy, is coming home from the bad place on Friday! He was told that he might not be able to walk for about a year, but he told them "The H*** I won't!" He's determined, and that's half the battle!

There's been wider doors to find and install, ramps to build, equipment to research and order and so on. Not that my mom did any of the physical labor, just the computer and phone stuff. And then Sir Moose-a-lot's mommy, my mom's mom, had to go to the emergency room herself! She's ok, but that was not a fun day for anyone!

All this to say, that's why we missed a day and might miss more for a little while!

Don't worry though, I'll keep the laptop warm for mom. I'm sure she'll be back to her regular schedule soon.

Oh, and for those of you wondering. No, Moosey did not get to go up for a visit. He would have needed to be all kinds of certified with extra shots and flea free and stuff and no one had time to get all that done so he could take a hour's drive that probably would have freaked him out anyway. but he's going to have his favorite lap back tomorrow so all's good! Yay!

Like I said, don't be shocked if you don't see us every day for a bit. We love you all and will visit when we can!

The family are first and we will be right here. My mom has not been well but not to the extent that your family is going thru it, Purrs and headbonks to ALL of you.

Bellen said...

I hope your mum's mum is all right. That must have been frightening. And tell your mum's dad not to overdo anything. Wanting to get up and go is good, but not if you just get up and go down again. But it sounds like he's on the right path.

Holy CAT, Star! You guys be sure to take care of your humans real well, it sounds like loads of stuff going on over your way!

Austin Towers said...

Sometimes humans have a lot of "stuff" to deal with that takes them away from worshipping us!!! The human and I send plenty of purrs and good thoughts to you and your peeps x0x

Star, your family has a lot going on right now. We know that your mom will be back when she can. Caregiving is exhausting, even when you're just doing the coordination, so tell your mom not to worry about anything but taking care of her parents and herself. (And you and Leo, of course, but that goes without saying)

Meg & Quill said...

Take care of things over there and we'll be here when you get back. :-) Purrs!

Melody said...

Will be praying for your family Andrea. I too have not blogged in a while. To say the least this past year has been bad. A lot of losses. Family and friends. A cat too. Menopause...oh my goodness! Menopause is something else. It is called the change for a good reason. You totally change. I'm not the same person I was a year ago. Anyway..good to see you guys and hope to see more of you.

Oh my goodness, what a lot of head-banging work and worry for your poor Mom! That's a TON of stuff to have to get done so fast! (We are at least glad to know she was not purrsonally widening doorways and building ramps!)

We bet Sir Moosey will be soooo happies to have his Best Human home with him--and vice-versa too. XOXOXO

Charliepuss said...

Wow! Your poor mum has been busy. Sounds like she might have needed an Occupational Therapist to help her wiv all those ramps and bits of equipment! My mum is one of those! She says she hopes you are all set up for Sir Moosey's dad to come home. Moosey will be happy to have his favourite lap back.

I wish your Dad and Mom well. It's going to be a big adjustment and I hope he DOES walk sooner than that.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

We hope Sir Moose-a-lot and his favorite guy are together tonight! XOXO

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I would love to come over later for snuggles. My Tum is still recovering from the furball and I think snackies might be, um, dangerous. I have eaten my regular foods just fine, though I had a tiny little frow up this afternoon. But I am totally up for cuddles! I'll be there just before dawn, okay? XOXOXO Hope things are going okay for your Grandpa & Grandma and Moosey!
