Tuesday morning I was very very upset. I wished very hard that I was a service cat like Dezi and Lexi. You see, my mommy had fallen and she had hit her head and while she was awake, she couldn't get up. All I could do was meow and meow and meow. It was early in the morning and Mommy had gotten up to clean the kitchen, which was the last thing she had to do before the annual inspection. When she had gotten up off the floor with the help of her walker, I could tell she was shaky. Her elbow hurted her, and her back and head and even one of her thumbs. I meowed to her that she better sit down. So she didn't even bother to clean. She sat down. She was afraid to take a pill for her pain because she thought she might have a concussion. She said she was dizzy. She called her clinic as soon as they were open which they almost were and talked to one of the nursies. They talked to one of her doctors and changed a couple of her pills she had recently changed. Then she called the guy in the building who helps her once in a while and asked him to finish cleaning for her. He agreed to come the next morning. When the manager came she explained she wasn't ready and explained she had hurt herself that morning. And she was having our place cleaned the next day. And she already talked to her clinic and had some pills changed. Her pharmacy would deliver it the next afternoon. The manager agreed to come back on Friday.
She got the rest of her stuff taken care of and they are doing the inspection tomorrow. Now, she is doing okay, but uses her cane whenever she gets up, and is taking her blood pressure a lot and her back still has twinges.
Now you know why I wished very hard that I was a real service cat. I'm not trained to help Mommy if she is seriously hurt. We came through okay, but it was really crazy and scary.
The way I am helping? I am curling up tightly next to her when she goes to bed and purring her to sleep at night, and curling up in my SleepyPod next to her when she is in the living room.
I still regret not being a service cat, but I know my purrs are helping her heal!
Hope you have had a better week than us.
