Nurse Kitties








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

Oh poor Mom Lorianna! My mom said to tell you that the only way she survived all of the pain was through pain medication. Of course there were also several surgeries. We are so sorry tht you are hurting so bad and hope you are better soon.

Oh my sweet friend how unfair your world is right now!! Just not right at all that you suffer so badly. I wish I could take some of the pain away...
We have had dental work like that before, but hope for a quick recovery for you.
We think you are the most gentle sould we have ever met. That you are so long suffering breaks our hearts at the cozy cottage. We wish we could scoop you up and fly with you to the ocean and watch the sunsets as we stare into the watery horizons....if love from us all could fix it then you would be better than new!!
All our love in hopes it can help somehow, from the girls at the cozy cottage

Well, it looks like you kitties are doing your best to keep your mom feeling good. I hope she feels better very soon, and that she won't have to feel so badly after the root canal. I hope they can fix everything with her jaw so at least that is one thing she won't have to worry about. We are sending tons of purrs and good thoughts her way so she heals up quick!

I really sympathize with you for all your dental pain and coming operations. I have been out with dental surgery myself.
