Ouch!

Wouldn't you know it. In all the holiday hustle and bustle, we had an accident.

Actually, I didn't, even though I was hanging by a prayer in our tree, dropping balls left and right.



Mom Julie hurt herself after slipping on our icy steps and hitting the flat of her back against the bricks. It's been so warm lately, didn't even think about rain becoming ice overnight in spots.

Oh, Tom! My left hand isn't working very well and there aren't too many words that I could just type with my right. I'm so glad my shopping was done.

Thought we would share some photos of Tom (without meaning to) scaring the nativity kitties and our poor tree.













Have a happy, safe and blessed Christmas everybody!

Love,
Tom, Mittens & mom Julie

***Went to the doctor. Nothing broken, thank God and Cod. Thank you all for kind words! Never gone on a dr's appt. during Christmas. At least my pain is festive, hehe! Now, all I have to worry about is Tom getting back into the tree and Mitty wanting to get into the refrigerator.

Mom Kim here: Ouch is right. If you need to see a doctor or go to physiotherapy, please do it. I fell on my back down my outside steps 2 years ago this past August, just missed my spine but had a very deep soft tissue injury. Never went to the doctor because I could still move (barely), but now, 2+ years later, I've started physio (at my doctor's recommendation) and wish I had done it, well, two years ago. So it's possible to still have problems down the road. (Just a caution not to brush it off and say, as I did, that you just have to live with the pain.)

Lots of healing purrs from the boys and gentle hugs from me.

That sounds like a big ouchie! We hope you aren't too badly hurt, Julie. It sounds very painful...

Cathy Keisha said...

Sparkle said...

Wow, never a dull moment at your house! I'm glad nothing was broken but I am sure it still hurts! Take care of yourself and let your soft tissue damage heal, maybe look into a physical therapist if things still don't seem to be working right after a while. And don't stress about Tom and MIttens having their way with the Christmas decor - that is what they are supposed to do!

Julia Williams said...

Oh noes! So sorry to hear about the fall and hope you are not too sore and in too much pain. That ice can really be treacherous. I love your Nativity kitties though. Have a Meowvalous Christmas!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Oh goodness, hope your pain goes away quickly!
Love the kitty nativity! And even though it's ornery, love seeing Tom getting up close and personal with the tree!

A Merry and Blessed Christmas to you too!!

Kwee Cats said...

Oh, we love the Nativity Kitties! And, ummm, the balls keep just falling off our tree too...hmmm, you guys and us guys must have gotten batches of faulty hooks ;-)

We hope your Mom Julie's getting better after her fall. And gosh, we understand. Lots of days our Mumsy's left hand can't even hold a glass of water and her right can't hold a pen...hmmmm, see, it just goes to show, everyone should have paws!

We wish you a Merry Christmas, full of treats, toys, and bunches of love!
