Day 3: couchbound still

Mommy’s Update:
Time is 9:20 central standard time Thursday evening,
watching tacky reality shows-Jersey Shore is on. Mousie is in no mood to blog because she’s got the cute on overload setting and it’s draining the power.

Mousie is still on the couch. Not much progress since yesterday. I tried an ice pack with disastrous results; she cried for a few minutes with much shivering, “I’m in pain Mommy!”. I accidentally pressed on the sutures trying to adjust her and she screamed! Then I iced it down, two paper towels to pad it and only for four minutes. Then, readjusted again and she yelped out again. What am I doing wrong? Was she freaked out because I was looking at her frankin-haunch? I need to buck up, being such a woosie now.

I am enabling her. Being overly mothering. I can’t seem to forgive myself. My poor baby. Maybe she doesn’t like the violence, impending cat fight between Snookie and Angelina. Maybe The Situation is getting on her nerves.

On the flip side: appetite is back with a vengeance. She does love to nosh. Nearly bit my finger giving her hamburger. It did have delicious dill havarti cheese, I can’t blame her.

48 hours couch bound and counting. No deficiency in the love and attention. She can handle it. Personal space invader.

    Awww, you can’t help but want to help her. I wonder if alternating between heat and ice may help. Sometimes my boy liked the heat, and sometimes he liked the ice. I can’t imagine how horrible I would feel if that was me after 4 days, so I think she is handling it like a champ. Times like this require much love and empathy. Sounds like she is getting that from you so keep it up!

    too, too funny!!! i say blame it on the drugs… really, look at the size of that incision – on one of us it would be two feet long…i wouldn’t be leaving the couch either..although the dill havarti cheese would definitely be getting my attention. take a breath and let her have her time. bless her heart, she is too cute for words – and she knows it!!! paws crossed for more activity in the coming days!!
