Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful for my mom's lap to lie down on.  Of course, as all of you know, I only lie down on her lap when I want to and it's usually on rare occasions.  That makes it even more special for my mom.


Pee ess - Mom is still on the mend.  She is still working part time and comes home in the early afternoon and takes about a 3 hour nap.  Her shoulder begins hurting in the early evening, but with the help of the ice pack and the Lortab, she does okay.  She's still not getting a good night's sleep, but I keep reminding her that she must take it slow and give her shoulder time to heal.  We don't want any more surgeries around here for EITHER of us.

Praline, make sure to give your human lots of lap time right now. This will make it hard for her to get up, so she will have to rest and let her shoulder heal. We kitties can be tricky... in a good way!

Kas said...

Praline it is so sweet of you to snuggle with mum when she needs you, I am wondering whether mum has tried some hot water bottles to help the shoulder???

You can't beat a momma-cuddle. Except with maybe a Daddycat cuddle, but we wouldn't know, we NEVER do that! :-)

Your floof is looking lovely in these pictures. Take things slowly as Praline says, Mom Paula. Those naps sound like a very good idea for healing.
