A Word From My "Murse"

Absurdly Gi-normous Kitty here.  

Mommy wanted me to tell everyone that she is resting comfortably and that she is feeling a little bit better.  I made her get up early and call in sick since she seemed utterly incapable of making this decision on her own.  (She should have just told the school yesterday, but you know how she is about these things...)

We tried to get her a doctor's appointment today, but there were no openings to be had.  We decided to monitor her temperature and head over to the closest Urgent Care Facility if it spiked again.  As of now it is back to normal, although this is probably more due to the Tylenol than her actually getting better.  We have a plan in place for seeing someone with a stethoscope sometime early next week since every time she thinks she is recovering, she suddenly gets sick again.

My sister and I have taken very good care of her today, though.  She has eaten and napped just like we told her she should.  She even went to the store and bought some juice although we can't seem to convince her that it is not so much the buying of the juice as it is the drinking of it that promotes healing.  We'll keep working on that.  Meanwhile, she is at least consuming fluids.  Mountain Dew is a fluid.  At least that is what she keeps telling us.

Frankly, it has been a very trying sort of day here.  Who knew that the nice lady who came to the shelter and took me home was such a whiner?  She seemed so kind and I honestly believed she was a caretaker.  It seems that she is really quite capable of being just a taker.  I have run my poor little pink paws ragged today just keeping her comforted and settled.  

You people might have mentioned to me how needy she is.  I don't think a heads-up on that would have been too much to ask.

For all that, though, she seems to be resting comfortably now and hopefully even heading
towards a nap.  That would be nice.  I maybe sort of slipped a little extra cold medicine into her Mountain Dew a while back.  You would have done the same if you were me and had to listen to someone making little snuffly noises punctuated with the occasional moan all day.  It is draining being a nurse.  I must rest too, you know.




I iz ti-yid.

You've exhausted the poor dear! I hope the rest has done you some good. Especially now that it is the weekend and that is NOT the time to be sick.

Feel better.

It's good to know that you can overlook the whining and take care of her needs. I'm sure she'd do the same for you some time.
Relax and rest this weekend.

Correct me if I am wrong, but it looks to me like AGK is wide enough to cover the almost the entire couch cushion from front edge to back cushion. AGK, Hannibal and En Esch want to know your secret. They eat constantly and cannot seem to put on any weight ;-)

I'm sure that the AGK and BFK are excellent nurses, though they are likely terribly worn out by this point.

Hope you'll be able to connect with a white coat soon and get something to really and truly feel better.

Murse = man purse?

I'm glad to know that SA has two capable nurses looking after her!

Leslie said...

I'm glad you have a good nurse with an excellent command of the English language--it must be really difficult to type with those cute, little furry paws! Hope you feel better soon.

AGK is most adept at typing. The best my kitties can manage is akldfhaldhfa;ldhajdh;ajfdghkjf.

P.S. Get better, Sheepie!

AGK, thank you so much for the update. I have been worried that SA might just decide to "tough it out" on her own, thus prolonging the misery. So if she listens to you, follows your excellent directions, and sees a "white coat" on Mon, hopefully she'll be on the road to recovery (and back to school) soon. Meanwhile, you please continue to rest whenever possible. Remember, put on your own oxygen mask first...

My, what a vocabulary you have, AGK! The benefits of having a teacher for a Mommy, eh? Get some rest (all of you). Make sure to keep her warm with your body heat.

The adjective "Absurdly" is so absolutely aprospos.

Mommy went to the school-thingy today, though, didn't she?
