Mom Update

I have another picture to show you, but I wanted to give you another update on mom. She has been having oxygen therapy treatments on her hurt foot. It is called hyperbaric oxygen therapy or HBOT for short. (Mom spelled it for me in case someone wants to inet search it.) She is put in a pressurized tube and given pure oxygen. Mom absolutely hates it. What is worse is that she has to do this every day Monday through Friday for 3 hours a day, for 6 WEEKS. She is having a very hard time dealing with this. She has had 2 weeks of this, so she is hopefully 1/3 through, but she still has 4 weeks to go...and that's IF her hurty foot heals in that time. All cats, woofies, buns, rabbies, and others are invilted to come anytime and purr, give binkies, or whatever your speciality is. Mom loves all animals and could very much use the furry (or not) love and distractions.

NOW, here is another picture of mine. Sorry, it's not actually me. I wanted to show you MY bookshelf! It is on the bottom shelf so it's easy for me to pull my books out and lay on the floor and read. I think it was very sweet of mom to do that for me! I am missing some books I want, but hopefully with time that shelf will be packed!

Oh, my goodness, Beau, we're sending your mom our loudest purrs, and all the universal healing Light we can muster! We hope this treatment works, because it really sounds difficult and time-consuming!

Sending purrs and good thoughts that your mommie's hurtie foot heals back to as good as new or better. Get the mom some good books to read while she is doing her treatment. If she is doing the treatments at home this would be a good time to have snuggle time with her.

Meepsie, Smokey and Chattie are all on there way...Meepsie will sit on your shoulder, Cathy, and purr in your ear. Smokey will lie, on his back, in your lap and wave his toe-hawks at you. Chattie will swirl and talk non-stop.

They are all ready to join any nap-pile or prayer-pile.

This Old Mumma Jan will be praying for you also.

Beau, you are truly a treasure and comfort to your Mom. Extra scritches to you.

Beau,

We have never met before but heard about your Mommy's hurt foot from our friends at Zoolatry. Our Mom know exactly what she is going through. In 1996 Mommy developed gangrene in her foot and it spread very fast. Her infection control doctor said they would not be able to save her foot but her foot doc- tor said no. He started her on hyperbaric oxygen therapy and it worked. She was in the hospital for a month on antibotics around the clock and oxygen treatments twice a day plus lots of other stuffs. She had 3 surgeries while she was in the hospital and then when she went home she was off of work another 3 months and going to the hospital daily for more hyperbaric therapy. Thank goodness she worked for the hospital and they came & got her everyday.

Mommy hated it too but thanks to it she only lost one toe. Mommy can talk to your Mommy sometime about it if she needs a little encourgement.

We will keep her in our prayers.

Good Bless....Mona, Weenie and Mommy, Sarah
