Recovering on Wednesday

Mom said she experienced two totally different emotions on Tuesday concerning my health. Yesterday morning, she was still very worried about me because I was being more unsociable than usual and basically staying in the back room. She hated leaving me to go to work, but when I came out of the back room long enough to eat some of my stinky goodness, she felt a little better.

Mom came back home during her lunch, which is basically a 40 minute round trip because of the traffic to check on me. I was under her bed in the far corner (where I usually am during the midday) and she tried to coax me out with a treat. Every time I would get to the edge of the bed and mom would reach out to pet me, I would retreat back under the bed. (She's not getting me back in that PTU anytime soon!)

Just try and crawl under here and get me! I'm not coming out!

When Mom got home Tuesday night after her adjustment and trigger point therapy (she really needed it after the stressful weekend with me), I met her at the door meowing for treats. I had eaten most of my stinky goodness, had drank my water, and had used the litter box. I followed her around the house for the first time since last week and even let mom trim my front claws. I think I am feeling a little better.

A bonding moment with Mom on her lap Tuesday evening.
I love you, Mom!

Mom Paula: I'm almost afraid to say Praline is doing better because of the roller coaster ride the past week, but she was acting more like my little spoiled Diva. I just love the picture of her on my lap. Please keep those thoughts and purrayers coming. They mean so much!

Pee ess - My mom goes back to the Oral Surgeon today to discuss the possibility of another gum surgery (this will be the 5th surgery on her mouth in two years).

Oral Surgeon - AAAK! that's just a fancy name for DENTIST. We feel for you and send purrs.

And we are SO glad Sweet Praline is acting like she is feeling better.

Glad you're perking up, SP!

If you're anything like Cosmo you would have been hiding under the bed to make sure Mummy couldn't put you in the cage to go to the V-E-T!

Cory said...

We's still purring but it sounds like yoor on da mend...maybe it was a 48 hour bug. We don't know what dat means, we think it means yoo eated a bug and it crawled around fur 48 hours and made yoo sick.

What a relief, Sweet Praline! We are very positive that you've passed the rough patch!!! Now, if your mom needs to have surgery again, you'll need to be fully recovered to look after her.
Purrs to both of you!

Gum surgery? Ouchie. Daddie had that he didn't like it one bit. I admit it was kinda funny seeing him come home after the anastheesha!
