News for Mom update! Good news!

Hello all:

Great news, jean is home, after a lot of pain and curses I got Jean into the car for the ride home. She is now resting comfortably in her own bed. The kids are on the bed comforting Mom with purrs of happiness that she is home. She had a good night’s rest away from the noise of the hospital.

Jean has a Knee walker similar to this, to get out of the hospital she had to show Physio that she could operate it. Well, she took off down the hall and around the corner, the Physio tech was happy, and off to home, we went. What a Knee walker is good for is if you have a problem with your lower leg, foot, you can take the weight off that lower leg. It is great just like riding a two-wheel scooter.

Jean is cheered by all the kind and thoughtful responses from all of her friends near and far. They help to ease the discomfort that she is experiencing.

Shoko says that she is very happy all of her friends are helping to cheer Mom up.

Bad news for Mom!

Hello All

Dad here, some of you have heard that Jean (Mom)is in the hospital, and she still is.

It all started Saturday morning when Jean woke me up with her moaning, I thought it was kind of rude of her to wake me up that way until I went into her room to see her. She had her eyes open but was not responsive at all to me. At this point, I called 911 and got an ambulance underway, when I went to unlock the front door, I heard a thump from the bedroom, when I got to the bedroom, Jean had got out of bed to go to the washroom and fell. More on this later.

The ambulance came and took Jean off to the hospital. When I got to the hospital they said Jean had Pneumonia and they suspected that this was what caused her to be in a reduced level of consciousness, and the also found her pulse rate to high at over 100 beats a minute. Normal is about 80. so they have kept her in the hospital to get her heart rate down. When I saw her this morning her heart rate was for the most part under 100, that is a good sign.

Yesterday they did a CT Scan to see if she may have had a stroke, what they found was that she dislocated her left shoulder and broke her upper arm and some ribs (fortunately these ribs are high on her chest and don’t move much).  The Orthopedic surgeon who saw her said that if it heals well she should be fine, if not she will need a shoulder replacement. When the Surgeon asked who did the surgery on her ankle, Jean told him, his response was “I’m better looking!”

This what Ann Adamus of zoolatry@gmail.com sent Jean and we really appreciate her thoughts and talents.

Jean, myself, Shoko, Tyebe & Budd appreciate all the POTP messages and well wishes.

This is Feline Friday at Comedy Plus so we will join them first.  Click on their name or the Feline Friday badge.

Now, onto The Fill Ins. The first 2 sentences were provided by Ellen of 15 and Meowing and the last 2 are the work of Ellen’s partner in crime, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs.

BUDD……GRAND GREEN
SHOKO…..BLACK
MOM…….MAROON

1.GETTING SHOKO’S GIFT….stresses me this time of year.   SHE DID LIKE MY FURRY MOUSE FROM LAST YEAR.  I JUST FIGURE SHE’LL BE PICKY BUT SHE ISN’T.  SHE SEEMS TO LIKE THE EFFORT I MAKE.                                                                 

2. My favorite holiday film is …..A CHRISTMAS CAROL.  IT SHOWS ALL HUMANS ARE GOOD AT THEIR CORE BUT CIRCUMSTANCES SOMETIMES MAKE THEM NOT SO NICE.                                                                                           

3. If you ask me,….BRIGHT DECORATIONS AND HAPPY BEINGS.…. makes this season merry and bright.

4. MY SPECIAL ORNAMENTS OVER MANY YEARS…. bring back memories.                                                                                       

Kali never played much, she was much more consumed with her looks, except with this Santa. Every year she would glom onto it as soon as her toy was taken out of storage. These are memories that stay with me whenever her toy comes out and joins us for Christmas as are other keepsakes.

 

Shoko is setting up for the Meezer Proverbs,

                                                            “A wise meeser remembers her triumphs and reminds her housemates how talented she is almost daily.  A good toot of one’s own horn never hurts the status quo.

No Budd.  There will be no more pictures of you in a box sleeping.  You’re getting boring.  You have your eyes open and look with it or our friends will think you’re sick.  Shoko’s even up and about more than you, Budd.                                                                 

How about helping with the tree, Budd. Mom has started dressing it. She needs my help though.

The tree is pretty solid from down here.

I must stretch and get that babble.

There…. the lights are tucked in.

Sure need to do more work here.

That’ll be for tomorrow.  How do you like it so far Budd?

It’s starting to look festive, Tyebe.

Artsy Caturday ansd Selfie Sunday.

Shoko and Budd it’s Saturday and that means one of us can pose for Athena the Cat Goddess and Wise Kitty’s Saturday Art work. Athena is so clever and pretty.  She’s a knockout and doesn’t seem to notice how beautiful she is.  Who has posed just right for an artsy photo?  You do look good, Budd.  Where did you find the box.  We got gifts from the coast?  Wow, lucky us.  Let’s see your picture, Budd.  Ok I’ll save it for Sunday Selfies.                                                                               

I used mom’s knee walker to get close to the tree and then reached out for a pawful of tree. MOL

        I look so pretty.  Mom used Floating….about 70% i Lunapic.

Come and view your friends posing at Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty blog Click on the name or the badge.  I taught mom how to make the badge hold the name.  MomGingersap,  would not have a clue without our guidance.  Sssshhhh….don’t tell her though.                                                                        Sunday is Selfie Sunday with my guy’s blog….The Cat On My HeadCooperMurphy is my Gingersnap….a good  looking mancat and a fun guy.  You want to see his picture?  I have it here somewhere…..

This is CooperMurphy or my Gingersnap. His face is so expressive. I’m floating for him. Mom is pretty strict. I can see him but only at Cat Scouts till I’m 2 years old.

Anyway onwards and upwards. Budd is posing and doing the selfie for The Cat On My Head blog who is sponsoring this fine tradition. Simply click the badge or the name and float on over for a visit.                                                                   

Budd is pretending to be sleeping but he isn’t and “click.”

Do you notice that Budd is loosing weight? It is kinda hard to tell as he is usually sleeping or lolling about. Mom says she thinks he is. We must do a before and after picture.

Budd and Tyebe on Selfie Sunday

Budd let’s do Selfie Sunday together.  Why, Tyebe?  Cause then we can show how well we get along together.  Is Shoko going to pop over too?  Naw, she’s busy with her Chalk. rahs.  What are chalk-rahs?  I really don’t know Budd but I gather you get a piece of chalk…..red is the best.  Then you make a large dot on your forehead, belly button area and wherever else you need chalk. You only can have 9 of them.  Then you chant rah, rah over and over.  Doing this will make you feel better and straighten up the chalk-rahs. 

I’ll set the camera up and we can pose.  Ya ready Budd?  Ready Tyebe.

            Budd. hope you’re shedding all over dad’s black coat. Sure enough Tyebe. It’s a work in progress.

 

The Cat on my Head is sponsoring the blog hop again today so come out and pop over for a visit.  Better yet….pose for a selfie yourselves and show us so we can get a giggle.  mol  Click on the blog name or badge and be airborne until you plop down at their place.                                                                                           
Over to you Shoko for the Wisdom of the week from a thoughtful meezer.

“A kitten is a furry rosebud in the garden of life Unless it’s awake. Then…..run away quickly before the rosebud becomes attached to your butt.”

You may remember my niece…well, she’s mom’s niece but she has come through meningitis and sepsis.  Tattered but here and ready to start rehab, shortly.                                                                                  

Tyebe Tuesday

Let me in Budd.  I have no thumbs, Tyebe. I couldn’t let you in if I tried.   Besides, I can’t jump up that high.  Get dad then.  No!  He’s in the basement.

I’ll freeze you with my ice cold blue eyes, then. Not likely you white cyclone. Will too! Get back here Budd and let me heat you.

Geez, Budd’s in a cantankerous mood today. Some people’s kits, really. Oh look Budd found our snake. Let me have it Budd….well, ok Tyebe.

I got the sucker!

Budd do you want the snake? Yes, I do Tyebe!

Over to you Budd….knock him dead….please, Shoko hates snakes.
