Oh... my mom!

I have been taking care of my mom... but... something went wrong...

Yesterday, she came home with all these meds...

This morning we started to read your blogs...

And watching some tv...

Here in Mexico we have a popular saying... "Estas mas salado que un moco en medio del mar" which more or less means... "You are more salty than a mucus in the middle of the sea"... There is nothing more salty than that, right?
And salty for us means unlucky...

These two days have not been the best for my mom.
Yesterday, as you know, she had her "toofie" surgery. Her Dentist applied 10 shots to her. 6 anesthesic, 2 antibiotics and 2 painkillers. She says the shots were more painful than the surgery itself. Everything went well but she came home with the right side of her face sleepy, a chubby cheek, a bunch of meds and a big list of things she is not allowed to do!
Later in the afternoon, she had a big headache. Her Dentist called to know how she was doing and prescribed her another pill for the headache.
One of the things she has to do is to sleep almost steady... and that was hard. She is used to sleep with her face buried on the matress! Of course... she could not sleep a minute.
This morning, her headache was much worse.
We came down to have breakfast and then she said she wanted to sleep a little to feel better. But I wanted to go with her so she bent down (one of the things she is not allowed to do!) to pick me up and while we were on the stairs, she injured her back!
As she could, she reached the phone and called her other Doctor. She explained to him what had happened and he prescribed her another med! And this one is one of those you have to put under your tongue and it is so disgusting that she wants to puke everytime she has to take it!
So far, she has:
A big chubby cheek
A big headache
A big tummy revolution
A big and painful back
Salty?? Naaaah!
She planned to go back to work tomorrow but seems like that will not be possible. And I am very happy with that.... not that she is in pain but that she will be at home with me until next week!
I promise I will take good care of her!
Have a good night

Oh no! Lorenza! your poor mommy! I am so glad you are there to watch out for her. It's sad! Is your grandma helping you? Tell your mommy we are saying a prayer for her and hope she feels better soon!!!! :) Frankie

Duffy said...

Oh Lorenza, I am so sorry that your mom is in pain. I'm sure will take the best care of her. When my mom is not feeling well, I give her licks and snuggle up against her on the sofa. I think it helps.

Benny and Lily said...

Oh Lorenza
Pobrecita mamma...Please help her get well. We habve our paws crossed for her chubby cheek

Poor Mom, Lorenza - take good care of her. We think she needs to stay home tomorrow and take it very easy - maybe you can get Grandma to come help you. We are so hoping things are better tomorrow - that is an awful lot of medicine.

Hugs, Phantom and Thunder

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my God! Your poor, poor Mom, Lorenza!! That sounds so awful. I really feel for her. I hope all those meds start working and she feels better and less pain soon.

ps. I forgot to say that my human, Hsin-Yi, has been to the dentist a lot too, with root canals and other stuff and so she knows all about those nasty injections!!!

Frankie Furter said...

Lorenza, I kow this will be kind of hard for you to do, butt I'm thinking that you shouldn't sleep very sound. Just take little (ugh) Cat naps... so you can watch your mom very carefully. She may need your help again... like she did when she had the rock in her kidney thingy. OK???
It's a love thingy. I know you can do it. Your mom is counting on you.
Keep us posted. Paws are crossed.

Oh dear Lorenza,

We feel terrible for your mom. She must be in a lot of pain. It is good that she has you there to give her much tender loving care. Esa es la mejor medicina para seguro!


Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, your poor mom. Take good care of her. She really does need some good cuddling. We hope she feels better quickly.

Tessa the Maltese said...

OMD Lorenza! Tell your poor salty Mom to put as many pillows on the bed as she can so that she can sit up to sleep! Then tell her to go as fast as she can to hide in the bedroom until it is all over with!

Take care of your Mom now!

Hugs, Tessa

Teddy said...

Your poor mom needs your loving care, Lorenza. I know you'll do a great job nursing her back to health. She'll need a warm doggie body to snuggle against to feel better.

your pal, Morgan

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Your poor mom! Hope she feels better soon!

Bobby said...

Can it get any worse, look at all those meds. I do hope your mum starts to feel well soon. All this pill popping is not good. A little walk in some fresh air might help, it might not but you will have had a walk.


oh.....poor mom, will pray hard for her headache to go off, and u take care of yourself as well as your mom.

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

We are sending out all our special healing chi vibes to your poor Mum. She has really been through it this week. There are enough drugs there to keep a hospital going and all those needles - aghhhhhh!!!!
Hope she managed to get some sleep and feels better very soon.
Take good care of her Lorenza.
Wags and kisses, Dinah Bridget and Elliot xx

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh Lorenza, we cannot believe all these awful things happening to your mom.
We just know you will be giving her lots of hugs.
Tell her to take the time away from work to recover.
Sounds like her body is needing a holiday.
We are so glad you have your Grandma cos we know she will be helping to take care of your mom.
Still, lets look on the bright side, she will be unable to eat anything much so by the time she is back to the treadmill she is bound to have lost weight!
love and kisses

Niamh said...

Your poor mom! I hope that you will help her follow all the doctors" orders and get better soon. Maybe you will need a nurse's uniform to wear when you take care of her. Hope she has a speedy recovery.

Your friends,

Cuídala bien... Ya se sabe que hay un dicho aquí muy antiguo (creo que aparece en Don Quijote de la Mancha), un episodio en el que alguien pregunta ante un difunto: "¿De qué murió?" y responden: "Murió de médicos". Sin llegar a esos extremos, pero a veces... Y eso que nuestro Jefe ¡es médico! Jaja. Pero hay que tener sentido común ante todo.


Oh Lorenza! Your poor Mommy. I'm so sorry she is so sick. It's hard when Mommies are not feeling well.

I loved the video of you playing with your Mom on the bed. My Mommy and I play like that every morning before she goes to work.


Madi and Mom said...

Lorenza your poor sweet mommy we are soooooo very sorry she is having all these problems. Give her a very soft lick on her puffy check from us.....
Thank you for your kind comments about my 'butt' you are my BFF.
Madi and Mom

Naqvee said...

Fenway said...

Dear Lorenza,

I am so very sorry to hear about your mommy! You know they feel awful when we aren't feeling well, but I think we feel even worse when they are sick.

Please let her know that Ms. Alpha and I are sending our best prayers for her to recover and feel better. And I am sure you are a very good and tender nurse.

Your pal,

Pedro said...

Oh Lorenza, take care of your mom! My mom hurt her back last week so her tooth work was rescheduled to this Saturday. Her back is better now but she says she can sympathasize with your mom's headache because my mom gets migraines. She said to tell your mom to put an ice pack on her head and keep the room dark and cold. That always makes my mom feel better. I hope she feels better soon!


Mack said...

Oh no Lorenza, we are so worried about your momma! But with your sugars and all those meds, she is sure to be better in no time!

Please tell her we are sending mucho Macky healing vibes her way,

pam said...

We are very sad yer mommy is having such a rough go. But you have the nursing down well we're sure.

When we've had to nurse our mommy we've found the best medicine is to stay as close as is possible to her.

Get better Lorenza's mommy!!!

Bobo and Meja

Brindusa said...

My Goodness,what happened to your mom? And so many medicine to take! No wonder her tummy is feeling strange. I had only one shoot for anesthesia and next day I felt my head blowing up.
Please tell her to relax and sleep as much as possible. Take care of her. We sent her our best wishe-kisse.

Cole said...

OMD!!! Your poor momma! I'm sure your snuggling and kisses will make her feel better.

I'll be thinking about both of you!

Yogui said...

Mecachis en la mar salada!!!!... eso si que es tener muy mala suerte. Dale muchos lametones y rascaditas a tu mami para que se cure pronto...
Patitas princesa.

Papi se pregunta si olvidó el hielo... eso hubiera ayudado a no tomar tantas pastillitas.

Letters To Gavin said...

Oh my! You must stay close by and help as much as possible. Not too close, though, you don't want her to trip on you! No whining either..... makes the headache worse. Good luck and I hope your mom is feeling better soon.

Your dog friend, Wall-E

Thor said...
