Lazy Sunday

Lookie... we've got Tropical Storm Edouard heading our way.
Our house is where the tiny black "x" is, right on the storm track.
We could really use the rain, too.
We all slept late this morning!
KC and Missy Blue Eyes are still sleeping.

Dr. Bob found the problem!
Auntie Deb has five herniated discs in her lower back.
She will see him tomorrow morning for follow up. From there she goes to a pain management specialist who will attempt to block the nerves. They have to do that before surgery.
That's all we know, except Dr. Bob saved the day (again).

nice to see her visitin' you; it's great when aunties visit--they allus bring swag!

Sweet Praline said...

Glad the doctor found out what was wrong with Auntie Deb. Mom has been through some pain management for her back, but luckily, no surgery needed at this time.

All of these sleepy pictures remind me that it is time to go back for another nap.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Hooray for Dr. Bob! We are happy that our mom will be getting back on track soon!
Great sleepy pictures! You both are so flat!

Eric and Flynn said...

Hooray for Dr.Bob! We hope he can soon get Auntie Deb well again.
You both look very relaxed and sleepy.

Auntie Deb is very relieved about finally getting some results. She's in bed with ice packs and pain meds, waiting to go for her tests tomorrow.
She may stay with us, because she may be getting tests run when her flight leaves. If so, she wants to spend the night with the cats (and us, too). And with the Tropical Storm to hit Tuesday, she may be "trapped" here with us even longer.

We're glad he found the problem, but we're sorry it's going to require surgery.

:Clap, Clap, Clap: for Dr. Bob! I hope that Auntie Deb will be comfie and that she can get all better soon.

Yes, lazy, sleepy day all over. It has been very cool and cloudy here so's I's just slept all day.

Beau Beau & Angie said...

Gasp! FIVE herniated discs??? Oh my goodness. We hopes her gets better soon.

Pixel said...

please be careful with the huricane.

Moki said...

Ya for doctor Bob! We hope Deb starts feeling better real soon, and that you get all the rain you need!

Derby said...

Rain is one thing, lots of wind with it is not good. Be safe with the storm.

Yay for Auntie Deb that she has a name for her problem. Hope she can go to a fix-it place for beans.

Mr. Tigger said...

That is great that Dr. Bob could help Auntie Deb feel better! Yippee!
Sol, BJ and Smokey come on over for a drink and some food at the M-Cats Club! You are one of the M-Cats Club Monday Members and are now Official M-Cats!
Hi 5 paw,

We are glad that the doctor found out what was wrong. Mom had one herniated disc and knows how painful that is. We hope the rain that you get is just the amount you need and not too much.

It is nice that KC and Miss Jade came from the same place. We were re-reading some of the archives and we remember when KC came to live with you, but we had forgotten reading about Miss Jade way back when. It was nice to go back and re-read about her first time on Grr's, Midnight's and Cocoa's blog.

We are sorry we missed all the birthdays/gotcha days. We hope you all had a wonderful time.

Tiki, Tavi, Cody, Camie and Miss Jade

Poor auntie Deb, she'll be needing purrs.

You look so relaxed lying there, it's clear no storm can scare you :-)

Marilynn said...

I'm so glad Auntie Deb found answers -- imagine, answers that no doctor in Maryland could give her. Makes you wonder, huh? Now to take care of the problems.

We live about where the 5 is in the "50 mph" part of the words north of the little black x. I hate these things. Makes me wish I had moved to Albuquerque instead of the Houston area!!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I hope that you don't get too wet!

yippie for Dr Bob! my mommy had surgery for 2 herniated discs in Jan of 1999. we'll send Auntie Deb uber healing purrs.

we hope you get only rain and no boomies or damage.

Thank you all for the nice purrs and keeping the blogosphere updated on me while I've been sick. I'm sure the nice thoughts have been helping me get better faster. I'm lucky to have such great friends!

Oh, look at the beautiful pictures! We do hope that Eduardo doesn't cause any problems!!!

Sam: "Hi sweet Missy, that is a beautiful picture!"

caspersmom said...

So glad that Deb finally got a diagnosis so the problem can be dealt with.

Hi Pretty Missy.
