Update - Wednesday Evening

Charley is home and not doing well. He can't walk unassisted and I can't help hold him up. Dr. Bob thinks Charley did suffer a stroke or strokes. Charley is a bit confused about where he is, although he does recognize the cats, he can't remember their names.

Home health care is coming out tomorrow, which will be great. Dr. Bob suggested Charley might have to go to a nursing home, but that is just not an option.

I never got in for an appointment today. The migraine is still there as are the two broken toes. Course, there isn't much they can do for broken toes, I've got them taped up, just wish I could stay off of them.

It was really a shock to learn about Charlie Cat. I hope to get over to see him tomorrow, maybe he feels like I abandoned him as well? This is too much after just losing Oreo.

This is one of the lowest points in my entire life. I am so thankful for all the comments, purrs and support right now.

Oh, no! We were hoping things were going better there. We didn't know about two broken toes.

ML, we are sorry you are going through all these things at one time. We know this is a rough patch for you! And Charley. And Charlie.

We hope things turn around for the better very quickly. We are purring, praying or woofing for you all! Hang in there.

Has the doctor ruled out Gullian-Barre syndrome? Mom had a friend of a friend who once had an infecshun and then they got paralyzed from the waist down but it was gullian-barre, some sort of reaction to the infection, and they were able to be treated and made almost a full recovery.

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Oh dearest ML! I know what chaos you feel inside right now. I felt it too on Friday when I thought I would lose my dearest Dennis...please do not despair as each day will get better. One day at a time is how we live here at the cozy cottage. The days are like a roller coaster but when you have help, the ride is easier. Home Care will be the ticket right now. Please know that you are not alone...never alone. We are all here for you. Sometimes it does not seem fair that all these bad sad things happen at once. Once we get through them, we feel stronger in some way. Ready to help others who need their weary hearts lifted up. You do that for some many of us even now when you are on the anvil.
All our love from the cozy cottageXOXOXOXOX
