Sorta Breaking

My friends I need to report something more serious today - things at the H.C. are a little rough for us right now. Some of you may remember some posts back in September/October when we explained Daddy has a very painful condition called Trigeminal Neuralgia. TN causes the nerves on the left side of his face to misfire and cause pain like an electrical charge. He went to get Gamma Knife (non-invasive brain surgery) back in October and it seemed to be working until a few weeks ago when the pain returned. The surgery does work slowly, so hopefully it's continuing to work on the nerve.

Mommy and I have been very busy trying to make him comfortable. He has good days and some really bad days. Mommy and I have been trying to keep up with our blogging but on some days it's been too much. We've said nothing over the last few weeks because we like to be light-hearted here and hopefully bring a smile to your face, but to be honest, we could use some purrs from our friends.

We thought about taking a complete break, but we enjoy blogging and visiting. We considered posting with no visiting, but we love our friends. We enjoy sharing your lives and laughing with you. We thought about visiting with no posting, but we enjoy posting too, being creative is good medicine too.

So we are going with a little of everything for awhile, we may need short breaks, we may not be able to visit some days at all, maybe there will be days of lurking only, and definitely posting whenever we can. We are going to go with the flow, and take care of each other - please take good care of yourselves.

  1. Your poor Daddy! I think smooching and purring loudly could help with that condition.

  24. Our best thoughts and wishes are with you.

    Blogs are fun, and can be a diversion when times get rough. You can only do what you can do, both physically and emotionally. Everyone understands that there are more to people's lives 'behind the scenes' and that people post, visit, and comment when their lives permit it!

    Your friends,
    Mr. Black, Elvis, and the lady

  31. We hope your daddy continues to make progress and feel better. We will definitely keep him on our purr list!
    Blogging is a nice distraction. We don't blog daily, but we make our rounds every day to our favorite blogs and seeing our friends & reading their adventures is a real day brightener. Just a few minutes away into the blogosphere gives you something else to put in your mind. You could say it's medicinal.
