When Is A Lump Not A Lump?
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
While I was performing full time nurse duties for Mom L during her first two week home from hospital, I had to spend a good bit of time in our bed just to make sure she was warm and comfy and pain free. But as you can imagine, once in a while I just had to make that inevitable trip to the litter box. I never had to leave my duties to go eat, Dad P made sure if I was on duty then I received my meals in bed along with Mom L. Seemed perfectly normal to me, right?
Anyway, I made the litter box trip pretty quick this one time because I just knew Mom L needed me back quickly. She was restless. You can just imagine my shock when I jumped back on the bed to find this incredible LUMP right in front of me.
I was very concerned that something had wormed its way under the covers with Mom L and I had no idea how dangerous it might be to her well being. It was a large lump under the quilt bedspread. That ‘other‘ very large lump on my left is, of course, Mom L’s leg hoisted high with an ice pack.
Back to the more important matter of that mysteriously appearing new lump under the covers. I sniffed, I poked…and still could not figure out what the heck it must be.
Still nothing from the lump. I was increasingly worried for Mom L’s safety.
And then that lump, that was NOT A LUMP, moved!! It was TKS who had moved in while I was making my quick trip to the litter box. She inserted herself under the quilt bedspread hoping to take over MY nurse duties.
She climbed out, gave me a nod, and then left. Lucky for her because after giving her my back of disrespect I was gonna turn around and apply a little smacky paw. But then I reconsidered because I did not want to upset Mom L. She finally drifted off to sleep.
