Toby's Diary

My mum has cold in her

All this rain and cold has got inside my mum and is now trying to get out again. We'll all be sitting peacefully and she'll suddenly go, "Achoooooooo!" and it makes us jump and she goes "cough cough cough" and sometimes "sniffle sniffle".

I'll be honest - it makes her a restless companion. I have decamped from her bed at night and moved onto the chair in the bedroom. I can still see her from there and it's quite comfy but I am safe from all the splutterings.

Josie takes a more paws-on approach to nursing. She spends a lot of time on my mum's chest and she sends me bulletins. "Still breathing. Yup, definitely still breathing". If she thinks mum needs it she purrs for her and gives her acupuncture massages. Her care and concern for my mum is in no way related to the fact it is still pretty cold here and mum is toasty warm.

It's nearly the weekend so my mum will get some rest time and we will help and the cold will soon be gone.

Oh no Toby! Please tell your mom to feel better! Sick moms are never fun. You have to watch out - my mom was sick once and sneezed all over me. SO GROSS!

It freezing cold here too so I make sure I stay close to mum at night so I keep her nice and warm so she doesn't get a cold. Mind you mum can be a restless sleeper too. I'm just glad we now have a bigger bed so I can sleep beside her but not right up close if need be.

It's nice and toasty warm here 87, 30 C. Tell Josie to take your Mom's temperature. Here's how you do that:
Josie needs to put her wet nose on your Mom's face. If Josie's nose becomes dry, then your Mom has a fever. And you sweat out a cold and starve a fever. Or was it the other way around? I can never remember.
