Just got an email from Jen! All is going GREAT with Ingen's trip! The driver said that Ingen has been eating and meows a little at first while driving but then settles down. She also said that Ingen is a "real sweetheart". (which we all knew anyways). The dogs don't seem to be upsetting her at all. They were in Montana this morning so all is going well!!! We're so happy and so glad! I hope this company turns out to be a great recommendation we can all use if anyone ever needs to in the future.
On another note mom went to see her primary care doc this morning and he's sending her to an orthopedist next Thursday. Mom needs a steroid shot right in the pain center of her back injury (which mom already knew). But it must be done by a specialist who knows exactly what he's doing so nothing gets damaged or worse!!! That's the last thing mom needs. She'll be going to physical therapy on Wednesday and she doesn't see the specialist until the 20th so that's a little ways off but at least not too bad. Her doc doesn't want her to stay on steroids too long obviously. He said that because she's taking the pills, it goes through her whole body which can cause problems. Giving an injection to the injury site just goes there. I wonder why they don't just do that in the first place? Wouldn't that save an awful lot of time, pain and side effects? Oh well!
So that's the poop on Ingen and my mom! Mom sat outside a lot this afternoon because it was so gorgeous today it's unreal. Mom said if she could bottle this, she'd be stinking rich! I don't want her to stink, I like the way she smells but the rich part sounds good! More toys, food, and stuff for me and Finney. MOL. After all, it's really all about us!
Hey Lacey. That's such a great thing that Ingen is going home. And for your Mom, Physical Therapy is something we believe in around here.
Can't wait till she feels better.
Mom is all for it! She's all for ANYTHING that will make her feel better, she's sick of it. She can't wait too. She had plans in early Nov. to join a gym around here so she wouldn't have so many of her usual problems with her fibrmyalgia during the winter. She's going to ask the doc and the pt people if that could still be a possibility.
We're so relieved to hear Ingen's trip is going well!
That is great about Ingen....Hope that your back feels better soon because we will have snow again before you know it. The seasons pass by too quickly.
I haven't been here much in the last three weeks. My nephew passed away so we have had a houseful. Alex, my younger cat, has enjoyed the company and attention but there were people coming and going. It does help to have family around but quiet time is needed too.....Natasha is doing better and taking her pills well in pill pockets. I haven't had to give her one by mouth so she is fine with me. She is eating well and looks good.
Now, go put some ice on your back, feet up and no lifting those cats no matter how much they beg......take care of yourself.......
Oh Sharon! I'm so sorry about your nephew. I know he's been battling cancer for a long time. May he finally rest in peace and his spirit be free. Please know you can email me if you need to talk. So glad that Natasha and Alex are doing well. Please don't mention that awful snow word. YOU KNOW how much mom hates it, MOL. Let's hope us New Englanders don't get walloped again this year. Take care sweetie!
You should keep doing all you're doing - Mom's been through it all and you never know what's going to work for each person. Te PT people should have you on equipment for exercise. That replaces working out for now. You should get their "blessing" before joining a gym, but yes, we get SO sedentary during the winter & that makes everything worse.
Can't wait till that moment when we hear Ingen is home. That will be a very joyful moment for sure!!! Luv, Tink & Snow
Thanks for the update on Ingen. Sending purrs to your Mom!
I posted a link on my homepage of my site to see the receipts for Ingen's expenses. www.ibdkitties.net (for those that don't know it yet, MOL). Anyways, I thought it important to post the information since there was so much money donated.

Oh Ingen is so brave to travel with dogs. I would be scared out of my fur. It rained here today and low 60s. Yesterday was purrfect, 83. Looks like you had the purrfect day today.
Purring for your Mom's back to get better.
Me too Timo, there's NO way I could do it. Oh it was beeeeeautiful here today.
A few years ago, meowmy couldn't type fur us, cause she had 2 surgeies on her hand, and she got (Had to have) PT fur it...it helped a lot!
So yes, they can help you a lot, and give tips on how to stay out of the pain zone.
Thanks for the Ingen mews, too.
White stuff...aka...snow needs to stay away as long as possible, but that is not what the long range forecasters are saying:(
