Sweet friends, please bear with us. Mama hasn't helped us visit much for the last couple weeks. Word is out that our mama has been "poorly," so we want to let you know what happened.
Shelly gave mama a couple of "love bites" and they got infected and mama tried to treat them herself but they just kept on growing.
Mama has no transportation of her own and has to depend on someone else to take her to a doctor....or anywhere else, for that matter....:) Sisterbean is in the training program for her new job so can't take ANY time off, or she will lose her job.
LaurynBean (granddaughter) can take our mama on Fridays cuz she doesn't have any classes on Friday. Most days she not only has classes but works, so Friday is the only day.
All the rest of our family live waaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy on the other side of San Antonio, and it is very difficult for them to help mama.
Shelly is a "nipper" and the first initial love bite was several weeks ago...and was a single puncture wound.....mama had tried bunches of stuff to heal it herself, but nothing seemed to work and it just kept growing!!!!!!!!!! This is how it looked on this past Monday...........
Mama has let Shelly know that nipping isn't an acceptable thing, so she does it much less now.....thankfully!!!!!!! Do y'all remember when she remodeled Andy's ear with her nipping?????
Mama was able to email the above picture to a doctor, and he prescribed oral antibiotics and a topical antibiotic cream......and the big one is looking a bit better today.....the antibiotics were started late on Monday.
It seems to have affected mama's whole body, and she hasn't felt at all well...and believe it or not, she hasn't had ANY appetite at all!!!!!!!! She smiles and tell us it's "terrible to get older!!!!!!!"
We are hoping to be back to our regular visiting schedule soon....in the meantime, please be praying and purring for our mama. We love her so much and know many of y'all love her also.
