Tired Tuesday

We need to ask for more purrs for Mama. She spent 5 1/2 hours last night in the ER. She's been having bad, bad tummy pains off & on for a week, but it got worse yesterday evening. Mama's friend took her to the hospital & sat with her. It took the nurses 6 tries to get the IV in cause Mama's got lousy veins. They got there about 7:15 pm & Mama got discharged at 12:45 am. That's really pretty quick considering....
Anyway, they did a CT scan, which came back OK but Mama is still having pain. She has an appointment with her bean v-e-t in the morning & who knows where they'll go from there.

Mama talked to the Dadbean that she works for & told him that the bean v-e-t from last night gave her some pain meds & that she would be able to go back to work tomorrow. He was fine with it, but about 5 minutes later, the Mombean called down & told Mama that as long as she was taking these particular pain meds, she didn't want Mama taking care of her kids. And, if Mama was going to be taking these pills for more than a week, they were going to have to "make other arrangements" for childcare. Mama is very upset! She understands the Mombean's concern for her babies, but to decide all that & not even know the dosage (which is very small) of the medication......

Mama did leave a voicemail on the Mombean's phone telling her about the bean v-e-t appt. & that she was gonna have the v-e-t or the nurse call Mombean so she could discuss her concerns with them.

We know this isn't kitty-related, but we just had to rant. Mama feels bad enough without feeling like someone is kicking her while she's down. If anybuddy made it all the way through this, thanks for reading!

We did read all the way, to feel ill is bad enough, to have someone kick you while you are down is even worse. I hope it works out and that the silly human listens to your mum and the human vet nurse.

Mum says to keep your chin up whatever that human saying means.

Hugs GJ x Purring for you

Your poor Mom! We certainly read all of it and it does not sound very fun. The Woman has HORRIBLE veins too....takes them forever to get an IV and she hates needles. That alone means your Mom should get a break.

I read it all the way through. Some people overreact too quickly.

My mom had those type of pains about 3 years ago and it was her gallbladder. She has been so much better since taking it out.

Good luck at the bean Vet tomorrow.

Oh we hope your Mama is feeling better by now. We did not see this before because my Daddy's surgery was in another city and we could not get on the 'puter while he and Mom were gone. Mom has had a lot of tummy troubles so she asked me to tell you she understands your frustrations. We will prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr and wag our tails and purray for her.

Happy Mother's Day!
