First, thanks to efuryone who sent nice thoughts to my mommy. She said she could feel them (or maybe it was the any-sthetic) when she was waiting to go into surgery. The surgery went well, but of course she is in more pain than they said she would be in. Now they say that is "normal" amounts of pain. She gets the stints out (these are getting pury uncomfy in her nose) on Thurs. the 21st and then it is all healing from there! She gets a lovely 750mg of Vik-Kodin (I think it is something Vikings made up, Jack what do you think??) and that makes her feel muuuuuuuuuuuuuuch better.
There are other things that are making her happy too.
First, I am actually jumping up on the couch, laying on her lap AND encouraging pets. I have done this for the past 3 days. I was on her lap for an astonishing 4 hours today while we watched Ellen and Patriot Games (she can't move much so it is OK). In the little over 2 years I've been here, I have never, not once, ever come close to being a "lap cat." Hey I was a feral for around 2 years at the start of my life. Mommy and daddy neverr pressed the issue even though mommy wished sometimes I'd snuggle more. Now I am!!!!! Mommy said even if the lap time doesn't continue once she is better, this is the best medicine, happiness, she could haf right now.
Another thing making her feel better is how much good news is on the cat blogosphere now. Smudge is fighting hard and has met a new furiend, Merlin and Jack haf new furry siblings and the RI kitties are finding good homes (she'll read more about that tomorrow, this post will probably wear her out purty good). We all need to keep sending good vibes out because they appear to be working!
The other thing is....as promised...my daddy is 30 today! See, my mommy is 31 (we come from a long line of older women, younger men starting with my mommy's great grandparents, this is why I wasn't worried about me and Brandi's age difference)so this is a big day for both of them.
Since mommy can't go out and couldn't bake a cake, her dad (who is retired) was nice enough to pick up mini-chocolate donuts mommy could stack into a cake (she had to haf someone with her the last 48 hours so her dad came ofur during the day while daddy was at work). Daddy loved it and enjoyed it with some tasty Bud.
Well, we'd love to show you a picture, but blogger is being a pain in the *&%^$ and mommy is to tired to fight with it. We'll be sure to post it tomorrow.
Don't forget it is Sweetheart Saturday!
Also, Happy Hannukah to all of our Jewish furiends!!! Take care.
