Spinny Sunday

Loyal Readers, over the last couple of weeks I have had to do some serious work for Äiti; I have had to nurse her and make sure she does not fall over. I have had, on numerous occasions, to pin her to the sofa. Pekka has assisted.  She says this photo kind of shows what she sees when she feels wobbly- which is good because I am still in focus. Priorities!
Now we were grateful for the comments made when we spilled that Äiti has Meniere's Disease, and Äiti knows that if she can get fitter it would help, and also she knows she does not have the awful vertigo which leads many sufferers to be housebound, vomiting a lot. It is an illness that is invisible but really can rob people of their lives. Sure, it's not fatal, but it is random and degenerative. Some people only get a few attacks, others have it continually.  She has been very lucky with this herself so far, and hopes this continues, but she does feel seasick a lot and needs to rest. She also wishes that this Meniere thing would stop fogging her brain and making her incapable of remembering stuff (don't worry, we have not let her forget our foods). She is currently able to work but needs the sofa nearly as much as we do when she is home! So she says that she may not be able to do a daily post always, as she is having to take things easy and we hope you will not mind this too much. She's not taking many photos -now this is how we know she is sick! But I will do my best to lick her into shape - literally.

DECREPIT! You know, that's such a good word for most humans, King P.

As you know we are sending hourly purrs for your labors from Nevada--we have a duty roster pinned to the wall. Oh, and purrs for Äiti, as well.

We're sad your Aiti isn't feeling well. We're sending lots of hugs and purrs your way.

We understand if Aiti decides to only post a few days a week...

We is sending our purrs for Aiti. Mom bean says it doesn't sound like much fun...though cuddling with you and Pekka would be the upside.

You will all have to be much better behaved and cooperative now. No more of this mischief-making and squabbling and . . . Oh heck, who am I kidding? As if!

No, she'll just have to make do with your regular sitting upon her and snuggling and burrowing in on the couch. That's the very best kind of medicine, King P.

I am purring my gentlemanly best for her and all of you!
