On the Menu: Pneumonia With a Side of BBQ Ribs

KATIE:  We're all on active nurse duty here at the Townhouse. Pneumonia has once again popped in for an unexpected visit.

WAFFLES:  Mmmpf  mmmf mmmff phfmmm mmm.

KATIE:  While Glogirly has remained healthy since her visit with pneumonia last fall,  Gloman... not so much.

WAFFLES:  Mmmpf  mmmf  phfmmm mmm.

KATIE:  Although he kicked pneumonia to the curb almost a week ago, the blood-curdling, wake-up-the-neighbors cough has settled in for a nice long stay.

WAFFLES:  Mpf  phfmmm mmm.

KATIE:  In fact, the coughing was SO bad, we almost didn't hear the *snap* last night.

WAFFLES:  Mmmpf!

KATIE:  Two words.

WAFFLES:  Mmm mmphf?

KATIE:  Cracked ribs.



WAFFLES:  Did someone say RIBS???

♥︎ Get well soon, Gloman! ♥︎

on those ribs of yours.

  1. Just food for thought my cough lasted for months until my sister mentioned trying Marshmallow root. I took 2 caps 4x a day and it helped immensely and immediately. My lungs would loosen up for several hours after a dose. I stayed on it for 2 weeks straight.

  11. OMC, Gloman cracked his ribs from coughing? Poor human - that is a terrible injury to have to heal from because it hurts to laugh! That means nobody is supposed to make jokes around you. Waffles, you will really have to watch your behavior! Meanwhile, I will send some purrs his way.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh, no! Cracked ribs are one of the most un-fun injuries ever because you can't laugh or it hurts. Does that mean Gloman isn't allowed to read your blog for six weeks? We're purring that he mends quickly.

  50. Hope Gloman is feeling better. TW sez when someone cracks a rib sneezing, it’s a sign of Osteoporosis, whatever that is.
