Tattletail Tuesday

Dis is not really a tattle, but, mom hurted her back again. She haf sciatica and lumbar stena-something or other. She can't sit fur long, she can't stand fur long so she haf been spending most of her time laying on a mat wif a tube thing unner her knees. We don't know how she did it, all we know is it is fun to walk across mom when she is laying on da floor. We haf been trying to get her to visit effuryone's blog while she is just laying around but she sez it starts to hurt to much and puts da lappy top thing down and goes back to laying flat. Dad's been eating a lot of frozen stuff cooked in da microwave cuz he does not cook and mom can't stand long enuff to make food. She did make fish fur him yesserday but den she could hardly walk at all. And we ended up eating about 1/4 of dad fish anyway. She is still cleaning out litter and feeding us but dat is all she is doing...no laundry, no cooking, no taking out garbage, no vacuuming-NOTHING. Poor dad, he hadda take out all da garbage and roll da cart down to da curb. She is going to see her doctor tomorrow and we sure hope he can fix it. She is not only hurting but getting really crabilated about stuff not getting done cuz even if dad does something he hasta come and ask her where stuff is and how to do it over and over again. She keeps telling him dis is why she just does stuff herself cuz it takes less energy to just do it herself den hafta keep telling him how to do it over and over not to mention trying to get him started in da first place. Well, dis post took mom over an hour to do, gess maybe we'll let her get back to laying on da floor whining about her helplessness.
UPDATE: Mom couldn't stand it anymore (dad either) so he called the clinic and sed it was an emerjencee and she just couldn't wait until tomoro. Well, daddy took her fur what she sed was da bumpiest ride she has effur had and she saw a difirint guy den her normal lady doctor and he sed "wow, yoo messed yoorself up purrty good" and since she don't gots inshurints he gave her a slip fur a half hour wif da mawsaje therapist no charge. Dis is da really nice guy dat she used to see on a regular basis...and he was concerned. So concerned he gave mom a full hour even tho she was only suppost to get 30 minits. He gave her a whole bunch of instructions...don't twist dis way, stay on da mat fur at least an hour out of every three, do not pick up anything over 5 pounds below waist level until all da pain is gone, sleep wif her "roll pillow" behind her knees...and da best one of all...try not to sit on da back of yoor backside. Mom sed "huh" and he sed fur her to either use a "kneeling chair" or lean forward so she doesn't put preshure on her spine. When she camed home she wasn't screaming in pain wif every step and she actually managed to go potty wifout dad helping her up (dis was weerd) she can sit down and stand up again! Yay fur da mawsaje therapist guy! We think we know why mom sez she loves him and dad isn't jellus.

Oh man, your poor Momma! She did too much work, it sounds like, and didn't follow Sadie's example: on rainy weekends, you should stay curled up all day. I think your daddy should be cleaning up your boxes so she can stay rested. I'm sending her lots of purrs and furs.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Kellykat said...

Poor mommie!

My mom hurt her back in February when she was out of town. She called her mom crying because she was in so much pain. Thanks to pain pills, muscle relaxers, massage therapy and chiropractic care, she is doing better.

It's no fun when your back hurts, so Kattonic household, be patient with mom.

Camie's Kitties said...

Our Mom has sciatica too, and ended up having to have back surgery last year. She just puts the lap top in front of her to blog while she lays down on her stomach and still has to use it that way because she says after a day of sitting, all she wants to do it lay down. It is nice that your mom was able to get a massage. Mom had one earlier this year and it helped with some of her other tension pain. Please tell your mommy to take care of herself, and to accept your daddy's help graciously. He is at least trying to help.

Kaz's Cats said...

Guys, we're purring and purraying really hard for your Mom to get some relief from the pain, and for her back to get better so she can get around on her own. You kitties should keep snuggling as much as possible, 'cos kitty purrs help so much with healing.

purrs and hugs

Glad you are feeling much better. There are a bunch of good chiropractors in Wisconsin who would be happy to help your Mom despite not having insurance, and some adjustments could really help with that sciatica. It can be so debilitating. Dad said to see if your Mom can put her feet and lower legs up on a chair while she's lying on the floor to take more pressure off her back. That may help. Hope she's doing better soon. ::Healing purrs::

Sweet Praline said...

I wanted to respond again because my previous post made it appear I was on bunches of meds. I was on a lot of medication for about 3 months, but I have been getting regular chiropractic adjustments along with massage therapy and I am doing so much better and NO MORE MEDS! There are some really good doctors out there, so don't give up.

Praline's mom, Paula
