mom's STILL puny!!

nels sez: the poor woman is just dreadful knocked out from coughing (an' she's GOTTA cough up an' out, her doc sez, or she'll put her in the horsepistal wif p'nomyia). she tried monday & tuesday to stay at work (havin' lain on her butt all friday through sunday--we made sure of that), but couldn't manage it either day. today she feels the "best" since last wednesday, although it doesn't come near to being "good".

when we lay on her, her innards make funny squeaky sounds and gurgles and rumbles and ripples. they provide pretty good entertainment until we are flung up towards the stratosphere as her coughin' fit follows. very disconcerting when you've just heard what you are sure is whale song . . . (yes, we listen to Discovery Channel, too--it's all about cats and dogs and gyraffes and fishes and burds and green fev-vers and mouses and ducks and white fev-vers and pink fev, um, flamingos and . . .*hrumpf*)

now dad has called mom, saying he went to urgent care this morning and they sent him off with four prescriptions and diagnosis of bronkitis, too. what is this world coming to??? good thing there are enough of us to take care of all two of them at once!

mom thanks kindly all the kitties'n'beans who have sent well wishes and purrs, and offered prayers. and special thanks to the kitties who teleported over while it was quiet during the first days to purr and cuddle wif us and mom--you know who you are!! she appreciated the nose-kisses and gentle head-bonking. (tee-hee!! it made dad think he was crazy at first, seeing all those kitties who obviously weren't us, who never seemed to be entirely in focus, and who weren't there for very long at any one time. he'd heard about teleporting kitties but this was the first time he'd seen them in action, and had already begun a frantic search'n'rescue operation for his marbles when we reminded him that cats do that in the blogosphere. he enters rooms kinda tentatively now, looking to see who *might* be where . . .;-)

purrs to all, and thanks--nels

Ohhh, we are sorry to hear about your humans being ill. Do you have emergency humans to feed you just in case the humans are too incapacitated?? Make sure you keep sitting on their chests, that is furry good for people with coughs! Keep them warm!

Yes, I know from my husband (Luxor's Daddy) how bad bronchitis can be, and it lasts a long time! Best wishes to both your mom and dad!
