Tuesday Hotness, Update and Request for MamaBug

Yikes, was it ever crazy HOT here yesterday .....



The AC in the apartment ran and ran and ran .... and we are supposed to get in the triple digits every day this week!  I wanna move!!!

So onto update on MamaBug

Her pain has increased more, so they have increased her morphine yet again and she managed to gain 2lbs.  She has been very alert the last couple of times we have been to see her.  She is really missing having some cards to open.  We get a few here and there and we appreciate them!!!

She is having some tooth pain, which surprises me because of the amount of morphine she is taking.  I know when she was at here at home she was having problems and her hospice nurse said that it was normal for her to have tooth pain.  The facility will transport her to an appointment, and since she doesn't have dental insurance I have to pay for it.  All I know for sure right now is the exam will cost $50.  We will know more of what needs to be done after the exam and what the cost will be
----
so if anyone would like to help me out by making a donation, to help MamaBug get to the dentist to get some relief, I would really, really, really, really appreciate it!!!

I really don't know what we would do without all the love and support you all have provided us.  Please know that you all are in my prayers nightly!!!!

Thanks!!!!

Update since scheduling this post:  I did some researching after (I know, I'm backwards) tooth decay is very common in patients who take Morphine.  At this stage of MamaBug's life, she will probably need to have the tooth/teeth pulled.

"the tooth pain does involve another set of nerves and morphine will not touch tooth pain."

We're sorry JudiBug is having toof pain. :( We wanna send her more cards. Should we send them to you, TraciBug? Or is there a different address? Ever since JudiBug moved, we didn't know where to send the cards.

And we sure hope you can get some coolness soon!

Purrs to Mom Judi. We're so sorry she's having tooth pain on top of the other pain. Should we continue to send the cards to the PO Box?
