Taking care of Mama

We've been doing a pretty good job with her. She thought Friday night that she could shut us out of our bedroom, but it didn't work too well. She got in bed at 10:58 & by 12:22 we were all in bed together like it should be. Mama just couldn't take all the meowing & scratching at the door.
Teri and the cats of Furrydance told us to tell Mama that a cat bed makes a good tummy pillow, to keep her tummy safe from us. Well.........Mama borrowed a pillow from the hospital that she carries around with her. We've actually done pretty good about not getting on her tummy too much........well except when Festus launched himself off of her on the couch. She hollered a little, but she was OK.
She's gonna leave us for a little while tomorrow to get her staples removed, but she promised she'd be back home in the afternoon. Mama still can't drive yet, so Auntie Lori will come down & get her.
We're still trying to get caught up with efurrybuddy, but Mama can't sit in the `puter chair furry long at a time. Thanks again for all the purrs & purrayers!

She's home, she's home, she's home, she's home!!!!!!! Mama finally came home, YAY!! We are sooo happy to see her & have been giving her lots of loves!

Mama said the surgery that was supposed to be 1 hour long took longer than 2 hours. The 3 small incisions turned into a teeny one in her navel & a 7" incision from her navel to know. She was in recovery for over 2 hours because her oxygen level kept dropping to about 80%. And the overnight hospital stay turned into a 4 day stay. Her bean v-e-t said that on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the worst, her surgery was a 9. He said she had tons of scar tissue & her uterus was covered with tumors. When he first saw inside, he thought she was full of cancer, but thankfully the tumors were all benign. It's been a really tough week & Mama is still in quite a bit of pain, but we want to thank you all for your thoughts & prayers. We hope to get caught back up with you all soon.

L & L Thursday (for Mama)

It's liquids & laxatives for Mama today to get ready for her surgery tomorrow......we know,TMI for efurrybuddy! She says that she's hungry enough that our crunchies are starting to look good to her!! We might have to hide them from her........

Mama's family is getting aggravated with her for worrying about leaving us alone for a few days. After all, we're only cats...just leave extra food & water for us, we'll be fine. Of course Mama doesn't see it that way. She asked a friend of hers to come by & check on us while she's gone. Most beans don't seem to understand that we aren't only cats to Mama, we are as important to her as their kidbeans are to them. Granted, we are better able to take care of ourselves alone than kidbeans can, but still! Mama is so glad to have the CB & beans that understand how she feels about us.

Sorry, we just had to rant about the family being buttheads! We'll be back in a few days. Thanks for all the purrs for Mama....we love you guys!!

Silly Mama

Mama thinks we cats are stupid, she's so wrong! She came up to us, one at a time, all lovey-dovey & sweet. She thought we didn't notice she had that yucky stuff to rub on our necks, but we did. She had to fight to get it on us, we weren't gonna just sit there & let her have an easy time of it. You can tell by the look on my face what I thought of the whole thing.....NOT happy!!

Mama has to go to the hospital on Friday for her hysterectomy. She decided to just get everything removed so she wouldn't have to worry about having another surgery later. We know she's gonna be in the hospital at least overnight, but we aren't sure when she'll be home. Auntie Lori & Auntie Pam have decided that Mama should stay with Auntie Pam for a few days. Mama wants to just come home, but she's out-numbered by her sisters! She told us she would be back home on Monday, but since one of the aunties will have to drive her home, we're not sure that will happen.

So please keep Mama in your purrayers & don't forget about us......we'll be back as soon as we can.

Update on Josh

It looks like all the purrs, grrrs, tailwags, purrayers & prayers worked!! We still have to wait for the final pathology report, but it appears that the cancer was contained in the kidney & Josh is now cancer-free! It will be about a week before we know for sure, but the bean v-e-t was very confident that Josh is cured.

We don't know how to thank all of our furrends for all their thoughts & all mean so much to us & we can't find the words to let you know how much we love you. Mama's eyes are leaking & she can't see to type very well so we just want to say God bless you all.

Baby Emma & more purrs for Josh, please

Mama found these pics of Emma the other day. This was about 6 weeks after her gotcha day, so Emma was around 14 weeks old. She loved her little teddy bear & her big brother Sammy. Mama says please ignore the dirty litterbox.
Tomorrow is Josh's surgery to remove his kidney. Please purr for him & keep him in your purrayers.
