Thankful Thursday

We're thankful Mom Paula's shoulder is hurt so we can play with the boxes in the office that she hasn't thrown away yet.  MOL!  Just kidding - we're not happy that she has a hurty shoulder, but we do like the boxes.

Update on the results of the MRI.  It's good news and bad news.  The good news is that there is no tear in the rotator cuff (which was a concern).  The bad news is that it's the same problem she had with her other shoulder that she had two surgeries on 4 years ago.  The doctor gave Mom Paula another cortisone shot, some anti-inflammatory medication, and physical therapy for one month.  If her shoulder isn't any better at the end of the month, he's recommending surgery to go in and clean out the joint.

  1. Those boxes look like fun! And let's face it: somebody needs to be having fun around there, because Mom Paula is not having any fun right now at all!

    Sending purrs for Mom Paula. xoxo

  2. Your poor human - the next month is going to be none too fun for her. :-( I hope it does the trick, though and she does not need any surgery. I'm sending lots of purrs her way!

  3. That sounds so ouchy. Keep up the excellent nursing duties, girls, and we'll be purring that physical therapy helps enough without surgery.

  4. Reading what your Mom may have to have done on her shoulder made our Mum wince. We will purr that the medication and physical therapy work for her this time.

  9. I hope the meds and the therapy help because the surgery option is not a good thought. Lots of boxes is a good thing though. Enjoy. Hugs GJ x

  15. Wow, you girls are lucky to have so many fun boxes!

    We are purring for your mom's shoulder. Our mom had shoulder surgery for a torn rotator cuff and shoulders are no fun when they don't work right. We hope the shots & PT work!

  20. We are going to be purraying extra hard that Mom Paula does not have to have surgery. That would be dreadful, especially as the holidays are right around the corner. Some nice kitty warmth will surely help. Make sure you two are being good nurses. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
