Greetings, readers. Steinbeck and I missed most of 2020 ‘cuz we were taking care of Mom.
I helped by doing lots of purring and sleeping.
It all started back in April when Mom, as Steinbeck puts it, broke her heart. She was out in the yard raking and started having some pains but she ignored them. In fact, it was two more days before she went to the hospital.
I am so glad she got to the hospital, but I wish she hadn’t stayed there that long.
Mom said they opened her heart and fixed it but she had to be real careful after that. Obviously she didn’t listen ‘cuz the end of June she fell at home and broke her left femur.
Do felines have femurs, too?
Check Google. Anyway, she was back in the hospital again and then afterwards had to go to another place for rehab. She finally got home and we figured that was it. She started healing and doing therapy and she could even walk without her cane. Then one morning when she got up, she could barely stand on that leg.
She had to go back to her doctor’s house so they could take pictures of her. I still don’t know how they got that camera in there to take pictures of her bones.
Mom was really discouraged when she found out she had broken the plate in her leg. Back to the hospital for yet another surgery. This time they replaced her fake knee with a new fake knee and put a rod in her leg. The doctor told her later that she has about 15 pounds of metal in her leg so she just subtracts that in her mind when she weighs herself. I do, too! MOL!!!
We’re all doing fine now that 2021 is here. We hope you all had a great holiday. Oh, Mom is walking without a cane again and she’s working full time. She’s working from home but she doesn’t disturb our naps too much.
I like having her work from home ‘cuz then I can but her sooner about getting supper ready. Mom is just getting this new site set up so we hope you all found it. She still has work to do on it but at least she’s letting us talk with our friends again.
