Workin’ Through the Difficulties pt. 2
Well first me wants to pawlogize fur not makin’ it to all of yous blogs. Da neighbor let us borrow hers innewnet connection to do sum visitin’ and commentin’ yesfurday, and hers sed weez kuld use it to send out this posty. Fankfully da net wepairman will be here sumtime today to get us back up and runnin’. Altho’ mommy’s not a happy camper. They make what they call open pointments. Dat means they kuld come anytime tween 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.. Now’s one of those times dat mommy be happy hers found da Windows Live Writer so we can get da posty weady to publish even wiffout da innewnet. So anyways, we stawted yesfurday tellin’ ya’ how we worked duwin’ da last foo mumffs wiffout da use of the wheelchair. Purrlease member, weez not tellin’ this stowwy fur pity or fur anypawdy to feel sowwy fur mommy, but to show how we adjust. And obviously weez not hav fotos of any of this so weez just addin’ sum cute sleepy fotos fur yous to look at. And yes, life is much better when fings awe nowmal and weez hav da use of da wheelchair like now, but weez still work and life still goes on wiffout it. So, let’s get back to ow stowwy now.
Me left off wiff mommy leanin’ on da vanity to bwush hers teef and sis Lexi sittin’ close by. Well me didn’t wanna be left out so me jumped up on da udder side of da vanity next to mommy too. Wiff a mouff full of bubbles mommy looked down at me and Lexi and smiled. What? Me knows a smile when me sees it. Mommy smiled. After all da business wuz dun in da pawdee box room it wuz time to head to da kitchen and fix us bwekky and mommy sum coffee. Dat’s what we do evewy meownin’. So Lexi jumped down to da toilet and sat there, and mommy stawted feelin’ hers way back down til she wuz sittin’ on da floor again. Sis Lexi jumped down and so did me. Sissy went on in fwunt of mommy and mommy stawted pullin’ hers selff along da floor and down da hall. Sissy moved a kupple toys outta da way and went on into da dinin’ room. When mommy and me followin’ close behind got there, sissy wuz alweady sittin’ in da wheelchair dat wemained pawked by da table where it had chawged da day of da flood. Mommy pulled hers selff ovew to da chair and then used it to pull hers selff up. Hers still kuldn’t use da chair cuz fings had been moved wound while twyin’ to clean up da water and there wuz no space fur da chair to move. And this is da way it stayed fur most of da past kupple mumffs.
Once up, mommy maneuvered over to da cabinet and sissy stood close by her. So me followed hers lead and stood on da udder side of mommy. Our bwekky plates awe washed aftew each meal and set on da countertop, so they wuz weady, and mommy pulled open a drawer wiff one hand and kep hers balance against da cabinet wiff da udder. Mommy fixed ow plates and then put sissy’s on da table and then got my plate and put it on hers head, and then down to da floor she went again. She pulled hers self to da livin’ room where me eats, and put meez plate down on meez mat. In da livin’ room yous ask? Well since me came to liv here wiff mommy me has always wanted to eat wight acwoss fwum mommy so me kuld watch hers while me ate at da same time. Me still duz dat today. Anyways, aftew hers set me plate down she pulled hers selff up into a sittin’ position and turned on da puter to check sum emails. Member, at this time da sittin’ chair had bwoke so hers wuz sittin’ on da floor. Ifin hers had had a chair she wulda pulled hers selff up and sat in it. And then hers sits and waits fur hers legs to kick in. Once they do/did she wuld go and make hers a cup of coffee and twy to welax and read and reply to emails and da blog or facebook. So, this wuz how we managed ow meownins duwin’ all da mess of da last foo mumffs.
We awe glad to be back in a dwy home where we can use da wheelchair again. Wiff da use of da wheelchair it means dat mommy dusn’t hav to fall off da bed and crawl wound on da floor. It means dat hers can hav a cup of coffee wight aftew givin’ Lexi and me ow bwekky. And it means dat hers not hav to carry meez plate on her head. MOL And it also means dat hers legs stawt functionin’ quicker. Once mommy stawts dwinkin’ hers coffee hers adwenaline stawts pumpin’ as duz da blood flow, and dat’s what “thaws” hers out quicker. And we awe all so fankful dat mommy has a sittin’ chair to “thaw out” in now.
Weez hope yous enjoyed or at least found innewestin’ how weez worked and purrformed ow duties while fings wuz stwained wound ow house. Pawt of ow twainin’ is learnin’ to adapt to change and diffewent situations. Mommy sez we awe purrfect and dat she luvs us vewy much. Because of ow twainin and abilities mommy can continue to liv independently. Altho’ wiff da exception of da meownins and mommys syncope (passing out) hers can liv a purrfectly nowmal life. Once hers body comes back to life in da meownins she duz purretty good on her own. Suwe she loses her balance and can’t feel her extwemeties a lot and tolewates an enormous amount of pain, but she looks like most of you. And feels vewy blest to hav each new day.
Weez also wanna wemind evewypawdy ‘bout da fundwaiser. Altho’ weez got mommy’s chair weez still need stairs fur sis Lexi and a new dwy mattress fur da bed. Ifin yous wuld like to check it out, yous can do so here. We also wanna Fank yous all fur donatin’ and shawin’. weez purreciate you all mowe than you will evew know.
Till da nex time………Be Blest!!!
