Getting Old

I thought I was a young-ish 15 years old, but I feel like I got totally old overnight.

Last night I seemed to have more trouble than usual on the stairs, and Mommy thought I was fussing a lot. So she lifted me on to the couch with her, Daddy and Grandma. I was meowing and crying while I paced from Mommy's lap to Daddy's. Finally, I was getting down from Daddy's lap and I put my arm down on the couch cushion, and then I started SCREAMING. My arm hurt so much!

I got down to the floor and was limping and crying. Mommy and Daddy and Grandma were very anxious. I tried to lay down, and I yelped in pain. They decided to let me just calm down, and I got up when I was ready and seemed somewhat better.

I climbed back upstairs (so painful to watch, I am told, but Mommy was reluctant to handle me since she was not sure where I hurt...) and I went to bed.

I stayed in bed all day today, and I have to say I was quite comfortable. When I finally woke up, Mommy carried me downstairs. I went to the bathroom on the floor, maybe because my elbow hurts? But I ate and drank and then went back to bed. If my arm still hurts a lot tomorrow, I might have to go to the doc-doc.

Maybe it's just my arthritis flaring up. I had a fight with Lilith yesterday; maybe she got a piece of me. But don't tell anyone. Sigh. I am such an old man now.

Getting old is the pits.
I hope whatever hurts is all better before tomorrow.

Dang, Mouse, I'm so sorry to hear. Maybe you jumped off something and twisted it. If Arthur Itis is visiting you, tell him to take a hike!
