Feeling Better

Mom, I thought you were supposed to do a limerick today.

Karen Jo: I was, but writing limericks with a head full of snot is turning out to be rather difficult. Besides, I wanted everyone to know how much better we are feeling today.

That's great. Mom asked me if I wanted to sit still for a picture today, and I said no, so here is another picture of me watching the birds. At least Mom thinks it is the other one. I am feeling a whole lot better with the reduced amount of The Missing Link. I am eating almost all of my Stinky Goodness again and I don't wake Mom up every few hours for different food. She fed me at bedtime and I let her sleep until 8:30 this morning.

Karen Jo: I am very grateful for that, Herman. I had to get up at nine anyway to go to my doctor's appointment, so everything worked out just fine. I feel better since I got more sleep and my allergies don't seem quite as bad today. My doctor recommended a new allergy medicine, which I will try tomorrow. Other than that, I am in great health.

I got brushed twice today. Once before Mom went to work and once when she got home. I love it. I even played a tiny bit. I also hit her up for three Temptations by scratching on my platform. I haven't been doing that much lately.

Karen Jo: I am looking forward to seeing you run down the hall at full speed to show me that you want to play again, Herman. I hadn't realized that I was missing it until you started to perk up again a little bit. I am really sorry that it took me a week to figure out that you weren't feeling too good and your tummy was getting upset. I now know what caused that mystery barfing episode. It was too much The Missing Link for your system, even though it didn't show up for a couple of days. I think you do have a delicate tummy, as your vet suspected. I will talk to her about it when you go in for your checkup this spring.

Do I have to go to the vet?

Karen Jo: Yes, Herman. You need your checkup and your rabies shot, but it's not for a while yet. Don't worry about it. It won't be too bad.

You told me that we get to spend two whole days in a row together next week. That sounds great.

Karen Jo: Don't get too excited about it. I am having dental surgery and I need the two days off to rest up and recover, so it will be mostly cuddle time. I am getting two implants put in, so that in about three months, I can start chewing normally again.

I like cuddle time just fine. I bet there will be some brushing time and some play time, too.

Karen Jo: There will definitely be some brushing time. I hope we both feel good enough for play time, too. There might even be some more blogging time. I am not to do any work, so I can blog as much as I feel up to doing without feeling guilty about not doing something else instead.

Ooo, Herman how lucky!! You'll get mummy time, that's the bestest time!! But you'll have to make sure to take good care of your mummy. It's a full time job being the mancat of the house (gosh, it takes TWO of us to do what you manage alone, you're doing really well!)

Poor Herman I just read that you weren't feeling well and have been shut out of your mom's bedroom poor boy ! Rosie too was sick, but far more than you because I already thought it ws the end. She also has a fragile stomac and I have to feed her apart from the others. Not so easy with 4 siblings, lol ! Anyway you look great on the picture !

I is so glad Herman is feeling better! Mommy wants me to write that your mommy shouldn't feel bad about not knowing you was sick cause we cats likes to hide those things. Is not her fault that you are a strong mancat and hided your sick.
Enjoys your cuddle time and keep getting them temptashuns- i knows it was really thems that makes you better!

The only thing good about dental surgery is that it will get you some more mom time, Herman!

Herman, it sounds like you have your mom's schedule going and fully packed. We hope your mom is feeling ok, and that you take good care of her! Teethes implants does not sound like fun.

Poor Herman and Mommy Karen Jo! I am so sorry that you both haven't been well. You both are so sweet and lovely, that it seems unfair that either of you should be feeling badly.
I'm sure you are both looking forward to some free time to heal and rest and play.
Please take care and know that I will hold you in my thoughts.
Hugs and kisses,
Lorianna
