Wordy Wednesday- Mom goes to the Emergency V-E-T

Mom? Mom?! Where are you? Shouldn't you be home by now? What's going on? I'm worried!Mom!? You are SO grounded!
You did wha?We don't talk about mom much. She spends most of her time behind the scenes helping us with our posts. Turns out she had a bad day on Monday. See, mom is a bit crazy. She likes to ride her bike. She likes it so much that when winter starts turning to spring, she likes to ride it to work and back. We don't understand it, but that's what she does. It's not usually a problem but she was home 4 hours late on Monday! We were beside ourselves when she got home.

Turns out she crashed. Hard. The ground was slick with slime on a little bridge on a bike path and down she went in a blink. Wham! Dad took her to the V-E-T. Turns out the human V-E-T is much worse than our doctor. Not one person at the office scritched her behind the ears and told her it would be ok. The x-ray guy offered her a chocolate, so I think that's like Grete getting a doggie treat, so that was ok. Grete didn't pass as a service dog so she had to wait in the car. Mom was wearing her helmet so her noggin' is ok. She hurt her shoulder. She doesn't have broken bones, but she hurts a lot and her arm is in a sling. The silly doctor didn't even prescribe her any nip.
Mom types much slower now. She promised us to help us to continue posting, but visiting is taking 3 times as long so she may be a bit haphazard in helping us say hi to our furriends. She said we might do something call "lurking" if her arm hurts to much to help us with the keyboard this next week.

We are sending super purrs for your mum. That must have been scary. Mum crashed into a gutter once (she is not a very good rider) and she said the world moved in super slow motion until after she was on the ground.

Feel better soon, Ellie's mum!

The Monkeys said...

I hope your Mom gets better soon. That sounds like a terrible fall (thankfully she had the helmet).

You guys give her plenty of purrs and attention so she's better soon

Cat with a garden said...

Your poor mom! We hope she'll recover in no time. The best bit is that nothing is broken as that would have taken a loooong time to heal. Purr away on her and combined with the purrs we are sending she shall be better in no time. And tell her to take it easy with blogging... Or better: take it easy with everything!
We think it is very cool hat she rides her bike!
P.S.: Our mom fell with the bike too and hurt her knee. She was unbearable for some days. Hope yours behaves better. ; )
