Hello, Cricket here with an update, lest you think we have fallen off the planet.
We are doing our best to bring comfort to our Momma Lorianna. She has had a rough few days. The jaw pain is TMJ due to a misaligned bite and from the RA nom noming the joint. She will need surgery sometime in the next few months to fix it. She thought for sure the hip would be first!
She also will be getting a root canal tomorrow. Her RA medicine made the infection in her gum bloom up really fast. RA can cause dry mouth and that isn't good for teeth. She is now using a special mouth rinse. The dentist gave her antibiotics and Valium. She likes the Valium. ;) silly Momma! She got sick with the Vicodeine, so no more of that!
She is in a lot of hurty right now and thinks that after the root canal she just wants to sit in the sun and stare off into space like a cat. She is so tired of feeling bad. She has been crying a little bit, but only in front of us kitties, because we understand.
As you can see we offer her much comfort. She is quite loopy as she types this for us, so she thinks I should wrap this up.
We Love you, our friends. We miss you. Purr for Momma so she can feel better soon. We pray none of you ever have to feel this lousy!
Lots of hugs!
Us kitties and Lorianna
