Mom says my eyes are brighter tonight. I want to thank all the fur people and their humans who sent me good wishes. I was so surprised to hear from all of you! Mom said I’m a lucky boy! It’s scary to be sick. Of course I wasn’t as scared as Mom. She was an actual twit!!!!
Anyway, when she got up this morning I showed her I was feeling better by eating some of the new food. Then I took a bath and I flip-flopped my tail so she knew I was on the mend. (By the way, I didn’t know I was broken!)
I heard that Mom fretted and stewed all day at work and may have driven a tad fast to get home tonight. I was at the door waiting for her so she had a big smile on her face.
We went outside to enjoy some fresh air. I don’t get up in the hammock unless Mom is already in it. Of course, she’ll probably tell you that I use her as a launching pad and she has a big scratch on her arm.
Here I’m checking out the yard to see if there’s something out there that made me sick. I didn’t see anything. I told one of my friends that I think a bird spit in my face! MOL!!!
I’m still not quite as spunky as usual, but when the doctor man’s house called, they said it would take a couple of days. They were glad to hear I was moving around and eating. Oh that………..yes, Mom started us on diets today.
It wasn’t intentional, but Mom got really scared when she came home from work today. Normally my little brother, Shakespeare, and I always greet her at the door and ask to go outside to play in the back yard. Well, Shakespeare was at the door but I wasn’t. Mom came looking for me and I was lying on her bed. She looked at my eyes and they were at “half-mast” (her words). I didn’t move and she knew something was wrong. She called the doctor’s house right away and they told her to bring me over. I got to see a new Doctor Man and he was really nice to me. He talked quietly and he petted me. He took me in back and Mom doesn’t know what all they did and I’m not telling. (I’m especially not telling anyone about shaving me by my “pooper popper”!!! That was more humiliating than having my temperature taken!!) Anyway, they took blood and ran some tests and everything was normal, but I did have a temperature. When the Doctor Man came out to talk to Mom he told her about some options. She and the Doctor Man decided to give me an antibiotic shot to see if that will help me feel better. Did I get a vote in that decision??? No way!!!
I’m home now and I’m resting. Mom will be watching me and of course Shakespeare will be trying to figure out what’s going on. What I didn’t tell Shakespeare is that the Doctor Man and Mom talked about putting both of us on a diet. Even with all the summer exercise, I’ve put on weight and that’s not good. Mom said we’re going to be getting different food now so I hope we like it.
Just don’t tell Shakespeare. Let’s just surprise him!!
Say a few words of prayer for Mom ‘cuz she gets really nervous if we get sick. I’m going to try my best to get well really soon.
Shhhhh…….we must be very quiet ‘cuz we’re being very, very sneaky!
WHAT DID YOU SAY????
Shakespeare, quiet! Mom’s birthday is this Saturday but she’s going to be out of town.
Oh right……..I remember that. She’s going to a house that has two dogs and no kitties. She’s going to be very lonely.
Anyway, since she’ll be gone on her birthday, we wanted to make sure something got posted in our blog so she would know we’re thinking of her. She doesn’t even know that I learned how to turn the puter on so we can do this. Won’t she be surprised?
Is someone going to feed us while she’s gone?
Of course. Just relax.
We don’t have any of that money stuff so we thought we would share some of our toys and treats with you.
Are you really going to give Mom some of my treats? Did I agree to that?
We heard that it’s going to be two hundred and elebenty billion degrees outside on Saturday and we know why. Just look at all those candles!!!!
Don’t worry folks. Once Mom blows out the candles it should cool down a little. Too bad her birthday isn’t in January! MOL!!!!
Mom, we just want you to know that even though you won’t be with us on your actual birthday, we will celebrate with you when you get home.
