My Mom Needs Training Wheels

17 Jul

Yep, I said that out loud.  Mom needs training wheels while she is walking!  The other day her and daddy went out to dinner – who would have thought that I know – snorts.  When leaving the restaurant, mom was so concerned about guiding daddy so he wouldn’t trip that she didn’t see this boulder on the ground.  Now that is her word – boulder.  I’m sure it wasn’t actually that big.  She hit the ‘boulder’ with her shoe.  Did I mention that she had on these really cute sandals that had openings to show her toes with their cute little pedicure colors?  She tripped, stumbled and thank goodness daddy was holding her hand so she didn’t fall down. So there she is stumbling while daddy is singing, “I’ll tumble for you” by Boy George – shakes piggy head. That’s the good part.  The bad part you ask?  Well, her big toe found the ‘boulder’.  She broke her toe nail, messed up her cute little pedicure and jerked her body from almost falling.  So as she tells daddy, she now has a catch in her giddy up.  Shakes head.  Only my mother huh?

So now mom has a catch in her giddy up, a messed up pedicure and guess who else wants to come out and play?  Mean old Mr. Arthritis.  She is also having a bad flare up with pain due to this weather that belongs in hell.  Yes I said it.  Hell.  It pushes the high 90’s every day.  When we get rain, it just makes things more steamy afterwards.  And it feels like we can never get the Hotel Thompson cool enough.  Daddy says he feels the power company lowers the power around 5pm every day.  Maybe it’s that or too many people turn their thermostats down during that time?  hhhmm – it makes you wonder doesn’t it?  Either way, even with fans you just can’t cool down and the heat is messing with mom’s arthritis.

So there you go.  You have my mom who is the stumbling toe cruncher catch in her giddy up hurting from the heat from arthritis gal at this moment.  Does that paint a picture for you?  Please send her some healing vibes and prayers this way if you don’t mind.  She’s having a hard time getting up and moving and standing and sitting.  Snorts – pretty much she has the trifecta of pain these past couple of days.  I’m hoping that this weekend she can get plenty of rest and some extra tender loving care from daddy and all of us anipals.

And tomorrow – oh joybells – we so can’t wait here.  We can’t be late for a very important date.  Mommy is expecting a phone call from someone here on blogville that is almost like a sister to her… someone that we have spoke to via blogville a LOT but never by phone  They are calling tomorrow at 2:30 pm our time.  We are ALL excited to talk to these peeps.

Can you guess who it will be?  We will post about it next week.  YAY!

    Oh, ouch-I’ve done that. Hope your mom feels better soon. If the skin isn’t broken, Arnica gel will help quickly heal that toe and get rid of any bruising. frankly, I can’t live without that stuff since I tend to be a little accident prone myself. 🙂

      Thanks my friend. I really appreciate that. I know she has to be feeling bad. Why? Because instead of eating, mom just wants to lay down in a cool room to make the pain go away. 😦 XOXO – Bacon

    hahaha…sorry, sounds like my mom. Did you know that when a peep breaks a toe….there is nothing the doctors can do about it? Mom found out the hard way. Mom has a permanent giggy up in her go now.


    • PigLove

      07/20/2015 at 12:03 pm

      Snorts! Mom knows only too well about the toe. The only thing they can do is tape it to a buddy. She has broken her little toe so many times that it looks weird now. Our moms are weird aren’t they Shoko? Snorts! XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts – same here my friend. Mom loves talking to friends on the phone lately. It’s so neat from blog talking and then actually getting to talk – it’s great. Can’t wait to talk soon. Mom loved your beach pictures. It made her want to see Mr. Ocean very soon. XOXO – Bacon

    I’ve had a “hitch in my giddy-up” a couple of times – old sports injuries do that at times. Hope your Mommy feels better soon!

    • PigLove

      07/20/2015 at 2:10 pm

      Thanks sweet friend. She got a lot of rest this weekend – daddy made sure of it. He even took all of her electronics away for a bit so she could sleep some of this pain out. She still has a hitch in her hip but it’s getting better. She’s not ready to run any marathons still though – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    When my human stumble on our walks–happens all the time, may or may not be due to wine consumption 😉 –they start singing “I’ll tumble for you” too! Our humans are so silly. Cannot wait to hear about your moms call. Blogville is a wonderful world. 🙂

      07/20/2015 at 2:12 pm

      YES IT IS! We have all met some wonderful friends through the blog. It’s so great to actually be able to talk in person. It’s wonderful! And mom is better, still slower than a snail in walking, but better. XOXO – Bacon

      Thanks Auntie Sharon. We really appreciate that. Mom has been taking her medicine, using her heating pad and taking soaks in the tub. Also plenty of rest. It’s still there but working on going away. That’s a great thing. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
