"Hi everyone! I am finally home! I made it home just in time yesterday because they closed the flights out right after I left because of Eduardo. I am so happy to be back with my hubbie, daughters and KITTIES! Seaborne looks kinda grumpy in the photo cause I woke him up! I had a GREAT time in Texas with my sisters, brother and mom. We rocked the nursing home with Mother's party! She LOVED it! I saw my wonderful doctor while I was there and finally have a diagnosis about what is wrong with my back and leg. I have FIVE herniated and bulging disks in my lower back that are trapping the nerves. OUCHIE!!! I am going to make an appointment with a doctor at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD. Thank you all for your get well wishes and especially for the birthday wishes for Mom! Love to you all!"

Hooray! Auntie Deb is safely home after rocking Texas. We'd be grumpy too if you woke us up so late - or early!

Buddy wants to know what you did that you shouldn't have that gave your diskies hernias? He thinks maybe you tried to pick up Samaritan.

WELCOME BACK! We are glad everything went well and that now you have a diagnosis! Bet your mom was so happy to see you. One thing we wish is that they would allow cats in the nursing homes. They could adopt them from rescue groups that have screen their health and temperament. Our grammom was not around cats since she was a kid and when she joined our family in '95 it didn't take her long to fall in love with the past group of kitties, which were all older, except for Tonka & Cherokee, and now us. Tang sleeps with her every night, she adores him and he helps keep her spirits up. During the day we all go in and visit her and nap at her window in a cat tree. We are healers of the mind and soul and we love doing our job. Take care and let your babies purr all over you=^Y^=the Cat Street Boyz & Mom Holly

Camie's Kitties said...

Hi, We all missed you. Mom knows what you are going thru. She had one disc that herniated in her back, and one that is bulging. She had to have back surgery last year for it. The cat blogs are what saved her sanity (she says). She was in bed for 9 weeks. We are so glad you know what is going on now, and can do something about it.
