Trying To Be Thankful Thursday


Leo Here, Last time we posted, we were Thankful that mommy was home from the hospital and yeah, daddy came home with her. We had our laps back, our lounging spots, our on time snacks! Everything was lovely and wonderful... for about a day!

That very Thursday mommy had to make appointment all the way back at the surgeons office, three hours away (that's six human hours of driving, hour or so for appointment, and about 2 kablillion kitty hours!) She got something called an Infection, though we didn't see anything new around here. Does it have feathers? Fur? Is it covered in catnip? Then what good is it? I guess mommy thought the same thing because she was not happy with it and got some pills to get rid of it.

Pardon this aside, kitties, but do you know that she took those pills without making a fuss, no scratching, no yowling, no spitting it back out and having to try again with a soggy pill! What kind of way is that to get pilled?? Humans is weird..

Anyway, back to the almost happy part. All the sudden, mommy started scratching her ankles off. She was flipping out like she had fleas! She assured us that she didn't, but said she needed a potato peeler to take care of the problem but daddy wouldn't bring her one. That next Tuesday she had what she called a post surgery appointment back at that surgeons again.. another 2 kabillion hours! But get this! She doesn't come back even after 3 kabillion hours! Not even after four!

And then.... the brother guy came over and gave us our snackies like he did when mommy was in the hospital.. this did not bode well kitties! Not well at all!

Apparently mommy's infection had a reaction to the medication and it wasn't good, so they put her in the hospital again! Without warning! Not nice! Bad surgeon, bad! Five days! 5! Can you believe it! They held her hostage for another 5 days! She said she was pin cushioned again, but not as badly as the first time.

Her infection has caused an infraction in my affection and attention collection! It's just not right to deprive a kitty of his rightful snuggles! Someone needs to pay for my troubles! And the rocks I throw at them will not be pebbles! Now give me my cuddles!

I guess we're thankful that she's home again, and daddy too! And that's a good thing. We are doing our darndest to keep her weighed down to the bed or chair or wherever she lands because we don't want her going out the door ever again!

She brought more pills home with her, and again.. not taking them right at all! I haven't seen her hold even one in her cheek and spit it out later.. At least she's not causing a disruption with any more scratching so I'm declaring her invisible flea free!

So it looks like all is well in our world! We are thankful and happy again!

Although.. I don't like the sounds of the words 'follow up appointment' and 'out of town wedding' that I've been hearing. But I'ma ignore that and maybe it'll go away, right? Right!

Pardon me, Kitties and friends, I gotta get me some more scritches under my chin so I'm gonna end this here! Get your cuddles kitties! You deserve them!!

OH! LEO! Mom and I had no idea of course! We are both truly sorry this interruption your cuddles and naps happened. What an inconvenience to you three. But, because she was good, and didn't spit the pills out or scream and struggle nicely taking them the way she should have...humans have the idea that medicine makes them all better. Kitties do too, but there IS a procedure to follow to TAKE said medicine, i.e. struggling with arms and legs flailing and scratching, a pill shooter and spitting it out anyway and re-inserting pill all wet and gooey, and she didn't follow it...hence the allergic reaction. Right?

pee ess: PLEASE get better and symptom free, You have been through it terribly! Hugs to you. Katie and Mom

We hope your mommy doesn't have any more problems with that surgeon putting her in the hospital to be used as a pin cushion. That is no fun for anyone, especially the cats who get left at home alone!

Oh no! Your poor mom. We're sorry she had to go through all of this...but like you, thankful that she is home again with all of you. We purr that she doesn't have any more problems.

be glad she is taking the pills without a fight - or she would probably have to be gone again....

Oh, Andrea - what a catastrophe! Maybe if you had done what the kitties suggested, spitting out the pills etc. etc. or maybe if you had had the kitties groom the area that got infected.................and more hospital is the worst. We are purring that this is it and all will be well. At least you are back home. We are hoping you get better very very fast. Love from Jane, Lily, Henry and Karen Lucas

"Her infection has caused an infraction in my affection and attention collection!" OH NOES, kitties! This is serious stuff. You mom must remain in tip top shape, in order to minister to your every needs and desires. This is an outrage, surely. Egads!

Your poor Mom, that sounds like quite an ordeal. I am glad she is back home now.

I'm purring that nothing more goes wrong with your human's legs! I'd also purr that she stays home... but I'm not sure there's much help for that.

We hope your Mom is all better soon. We are so very sorry that she had to go to the hospital. We are sending her healing purrs and our Mom doesn't pill right either and she has to take pills forever, you would think she would get tired of taking them and spit them out.

It sounds a bit crazy but we HOPE you get well soon Mum. Medicine's scare us stiff and finding yourself itching UGH! We can imagine the worry.

Hang in there you guys! Mum WILL get better (or we might all come and Meow her into submission!!)

Leo...I know what's missing. Get her an Elizabethan collar! I know...she's not struggling where YIU all can see her but I bet the collar would help anyway!
