Guess what!!! The orthopedist called with a cancellation for tomorrow morning to give my mommy the steroid shot in her back! Instead of waiting until the 14th, she goes tomorrow morning! Please purr for her it goes well. She's a little nervous but mostly excited to get it over with.
Instead of going to the doctor's office, they're doing it at the nearby hospital in radiology so it's only a few minutes away. Only thing is that grampy has to drive her home, she can't drive herself and he is one TERRIBLE driver! He freaks everyone out he's so bad. He tailgates so bad you could kiss the bumper and then he presses on and off the break enough to make you car sick. Then he swears at people! MOL. Relax grampy for crying out loud.
So mom says she'll drive on the way over there and then he can drive them home after and she'll clutch the door handle and pray the whole time, MOL. Poor meowmy, that doesn't sound fun at all. She says the needle isn't even bothering her as much as the car ride home!
Plus tomorrow is a full moon and you know how superstitious my momma is. But so far it's been a really good week so we're hoping it sticks with that momentum! Just wanted to give you an update. Thanks everyone for helping us celebrate Alex's big honor of COTW! We've been enjoying seeing so many of our furriends again!
Crossed paws for my meowmy!
oh MOL Lacey me and my family will be purring and praying for your Mom tomorrow for her to feels so much better and especially to keep her safe on her return trip home...
Mom says your Mom will be her in thoughts and prayers too...
Xena and family
MOL, thanks Xena and family. I know it sounds funny but mommy SERIOUSLY hates to get in the car with grampy.
I'll be sending your momma purrs.
We will keep Mommy in our purrs all day tomorrow. Not just for the shot, but for the car ride too. (Sounds alot like my grand-mother in law!) We sure hope she gets relief, it worked really well for our Grammy!
oh! Good luck to your Mommy tomorrow! Be purrrrfect kitties, ok? and take cares a'her! My grandpaw is an awwwful driver-I thank the ceiling cat that I nevfur had ta drive with him! MOL! I think it might just be old me. old stinky men who snores and stuffs
I wish that she could hold your paw while she got her shot.....I hope that it helps her back. I had the surgery and it fixed the problem. Can she ask them for a pill for the ride home? She must be getting muscle relaxing pill. Motrin helps too.
I wish that we lived closer and I would drive you there and back....By this time tomorrow, it will be over and hopefully the back will be better.....Purrs are being sent her way.....
Thanks Skylar! Mom really needs to hear that. So far everyone she's talked to said this shot REALLY REALLY helps a lot! MOL Kitty P. Yep, grampy is old and stinky fur sure but he's still a horrible driver! Oh Natasha, we wish that too! That would be much better for meowmy than grampy going with her. Oh well. Mom still has plenty of her pain pills. Remember how the other docfur wouldn't even give her TWO? Well this one gave her 30 of them and mom has only taken 5!!! So BIG FAT POOPHEADS to that other dumb doctor! MOL.
Praying for your Mom Lacey to & fro..... :-/
Hope dat shot will halp hur feel so much betta mol....
My grampy use to swear in all languages we laff our whiskas off instead of stitches - - - - - - - - - -
Wuvvs & paws crossed,
Kally Kat ღ ღ
Thank you Kally! Mom will be sure and let you all know tomorrow she's still alive (not from the shot but from the ride home, MOL)
Ah, full moon doesn't mean nothing. Except it's light out and we kitties wanna go and prowl and hunt.
We'll purr for your Mom tomorrow that all goes well with the shot and with Grandpaw's driving too.
Mietzi & Timo
Purring that everything goes well for your mommy tomorrow.
For the ride home, she should pretend to be really tired after the shot and then put the car seat back as far as it can go and pretend to sleep. If she can't see what they're about to hit, she won't be as anxious.
Our paws are crossed.
PS- Lucius is one stinking dog!
Thanks Briana, but mom says she's even more afraid to NOT look where she's going! MOL. She'll take a pain pill at the hospital and maybe that will make her so sleepy she won't care. Thanks Zoe!!
Um...there are always taxis, MOL!
That driving hazard sounds like our 'Opa' He drove like that, too, and meowmy would grip the edge of the seat furry tightly! MOL!
We hope and purray that things will go well fur your Mom, and that the result will be blessed *relief*!
What did I tell you about the full moon! Mom's uncle, the one with MS, he just died. RIGHT NOW. He just died at home.
We are sorry to hear that, Lacey.
Pawlease accept our condolences.
Thank you Zach and Pipo & Minko. Mom's eyes are really leaking hard right now.
Sometimes you just gotta do things you'd rather not. Let grampa drive, it's just for the times you CAN'T. Make sure you're belted in and make him drive as slowly as possible, so if he gets in an accident it won't be so dangerous. The speed limit AT MOST.
Be sure to go ahead with the shot, even though you might want to cancel. You'll need it to get thru this! Someone will sit with Gramma, or she might appreciate a couple hours to herself. Maybe a neighbor or a relative could keep her company.
Just don't back out now! Luv, Tink
So sorry for your loss.
You are right Tink. I wish mommy's sister that lives here could get out of work tomorrow. Then she could take mom and grammy and grampy could stay here and relax or go and do what they have to do! Oh and besides that, grammy has to go for blood work in the morning! She's got all kinds of pimples and stuff driving her crazy on her head. Her skin is so dry. And she has a sore in her nose that never heals. She's SO SO SO SO stubborn! She's been like this for a couple of years and just as soon not tell anyone! She finally broke down and called the doctor. Jeez! Mom kept bugging her and bugging her but it's no use. She's just as stubborn or worse than grampy is.
Thank you Rufus, we appreciate it.
Lacey's mom here: I'm so tired, I JUST got back. It took FOREVER! The shot only took less than 15 minutes. We were there for 3 hours! My poor parents are exhausted and I fell asleep in the chair several times. I’m going to eat something and go to bed. So far I feel a little better. Knee is still throbbing but the whole thing didn’t hurt. Just felt pressure when he put in the injection, felt it go down my leg but other than that it was fine. Easy. So if I end up having to do it again (which I hope not) but if I do, I won’t be nervous. But next time they can leave and come back and pick me up. Jeez! MOL. But I'm home and I'm fine!!! Just wanted to let you all know it went well. Luv you guys!
Lacey here! And btw, grampy almost KILLED them on the way home! OMG mom was almost pooping her pants in the car! I'm not kidding. She said next time she will take a taxi, probably be safer!
We are glad your mom is home and safe, too...now meowmy can go to work without too many worries...
Take it easy, OK!? POTP to your mom!
She will guys, getting ready to go for a nap. Mom just fed us and she's catching up on a few emails, friends checking on her. Then we're going for a snooze in the warm bed together. Thanks for caring about us so much! Love you!
Glad your home & resting afta all you've been throo!
Sending ~Get Well Wishes~ your way,
Soon, you'll be feeling betta each day!
Wuvs & purrs,
Kally Kat ♥ ♥
Filled wiff ♥luvs♥

Glad your mom is home...get plenty of rest Lacey's mom and take care of yourself!
Hi everyone! Mommy will write an update as soon as she can today. Doing good though! Kally you always have the cutest pictures, thank you. Hi Gumpy. that was a close one, meowmy said she almost had an accident of her own driving with grampy! MOL!!! That's how bad he is. Bibi it went well, momma said it really didn't hurt too bad at all.
