Mom's Sick

Update: The opthamologist (eye doctor) gave Mom good news about her eyes. So far, the shingles are not in her eye. She just has to be really careful. Mom says thank you for all of your well wishes. We have been resting today!!!

Mom is home sick today. She said something about having a roof on her head.

Mom: Praline, it's shingles, not a roof.

Whatever! The important thing is - Mom gets to spend the whole day with me. It's what she gets for leaving me the past two weekends. Just kidding Mom.

The doctor said he thinks my mom has something called "Shingles" and he said she could be in pain for 4-5 weeks. She must go to the eye doctor this morning because the blisters are on her forehead near her eyes. Please keep my mom in your purrayers that she can heal quickly from this with little pain.



I'm sorry you feel bad today, Mom. I'll try to be good (but I can't promise).

Let's watch some TV!

And take lots and lots of naps!

Tell your Mom to get some rest ... those types of things like to pop up when you get too worn down. I know she'll want to go to the big football game Saturday, but if you sit in her lap and purr a lot maybe she'll rest instead.

Momma has heaed of them but we both do not know what they are from.. only that My Mommas Mommas used to say to her "get away from that heater or you will get shingles"..
Either way blisters on forehead sounds just terrible, I hope that your Momma recovers quickly and that the doctor is wrong.
You make sure she gets lots of rest Miss Praline and those are some very good idea to get you both started :))

Oh no Praline! They eye shingles is nasty stuff! We will purr for you person. Sometimes acupuncture can take the pain away too and make it heal a bit faster--although Momma says of her shingles patients the ones with body specific areas tend to do better with acupuncture than the head specific but she has still helped.

Puffie said...

I'm sorry your mommy has shingles. Our meowmee had that too last December. She gots to stay home from job hunting a WHOLE WEEK. The docter (actually, her allergist) diagnosed it and put her on a whole bunches of vitamnsi and some drug. Except for one day of bad pain on her right side of her heard, she's came out just fine. Doc sez cause they caught it fast. How could they catch it, it wasn't moving? I'm still trying figure that out!
Cuddle lots with your mom. She'll love it!

The Island Cats said...

We'll get to purring for your Momma right away. Our Mommy's uncle had shingles once and it's a big owie - we hope she gets better soon.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, no. Shingles are supposed to be painful. Especially if they fall on your head. So please take good care of your mom and keep her inside away from the falling shingles.

Jan here: The guys don't have a clue what shingles is but I hope your mom will not have too painful a time with them. My brother had this near his eyes, so I'm glad you're going to the eye doctor too.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Our grampa used to get dem when he was stressed out and din't get enuff rest! Mom sez dey is caused by da same kinda herpes virus dat causes measles! Da doctor told mom dat dey inflame da nerve endings and dat is what causes da pain...make yoor momma rest and eat some good stuff and take care of herself so dey will go away cuz we don't like to think of anybody wif dem hurty things.
