Nurse Katie & Waffles Reporting for Duty

KATIE:  Glogirly is having oral surgery today so I'm getting ready to take care of her when she gets home.





WAFFLES:  What's oral surgery, Boss? Is it a new game we can play on our iPad?

KATIE:  Not exactly, Waffles. It's like going to the vet and instead of just getting a shot with a little needle, they use a big drill. 

WAFFLES:  A big drill? Like on HGTV???




Glogirly's Date with the Oral Surgeon
Just when Glogirly has started to recover from her extended work trip, she's got a not-so-fun date with the oral surgeon Friday morning. For those of you in-the-know about such things, the procedure she's having is called an Apicoectomy and it's performed by an Endodontist. Something Waffles will never be able to pronounce and if you don't already know what it is, it's probably best to not even ask. There's a dentist, a big drill, they go in sideways through the jaw... say no more.

She's getting valium, gas (not the Mexican bean kind) and plenty of pain killers to help her through it all. Gloman is her driver and we're serving as her primary home care team. She's got a prescription for lots and lots of kitty cuddles, catnaps and Vicodin. 

Recovery takes a few days, so we're expecting she'll be pretty loopy for awhile. Good thing Gloman is familiar with our meal service regimen. Surely we'll be needing extra nourishment with all the caregiving we'll be administering.

  19. Oh no! Poor Glogirly! We sure hope all goes well for her. We're on nurse duty here too. No drills involved, but there's this big metal thing called a walker. What a strange contraption!

    ReplyDelete
  20. We hope everything goes well! Thank Cod you clarified the gas part too! Take great care of her so she feels better soon!

  21. That doesn't sound like fun at the best of times. I bet she'll be glad when she's back on her feet at home, where she belongs!

  23. Big hugs for Glogirly. Mom says that she's never heard of this surgery before. It sounds dreadful. You kitties behave yourselves and take good care of her. We're all sending lots of purrs. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  24. Oh Glogirly! We sure hope that once you are recovered you, Gloman and the kitties can either have a beautiful stay-cation or take a little trip together, like last year, to relax, reflect and recharge! Hoping that it all goes smoothly and that the kitty cuddles and Vicodin keep you as comfortable as possible. Z-Girl and the Squeedunk Gang

  31. OMC - That surgery sounds horrible. Tell Glogirly to take care of herself - we'll be here and look forward to your posts whenever they can happen.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am purring for Glogirly that the surgery goes well. I know you both will be very good nurses.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, poor Glogirly. We think she needed more time to recover from all those work hours away from home, but since it isn't happening, we're glad she has you two and Gloman and lots of painkillers to nurse her through.

    ReplyDelete
  34. No, no! One doesn't go to the oral surgeon after a trip away from home and so much work!
    We're sending lots of hugs and purrs...not that you'll need it with the drugs ;-)

  35. Ugh, oral surgery! Good thing you have top notch nurses like Katie and Waffles to give you purrsonal attention while you're healing and recovering. I lovelovelove the picture of Waffles with the drill.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ooh, Nasty! I thought I'd suffered all that the dentist has to offer, but I don't think I've had this one. My dentist is a cat guy, and he says to never, ever, let your cats play with your drills, especially not if they are orange fellows. I think that means you, Waffles.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm sending good thoughts and all the kitties are purring!

  45. That drill.. seriously? I'm still chuckling over it.

    ReplyDelete
  46. TW’s cousin had that and I hope your Girl’s surgery goes lots better than Jill’s did. Sending healing purrz. I’m not even gonna mention that first she deserts you for a hunnert weeks and now you’re expected to be her nurses.

  47. It sounds awful Glogirly. I wouldn't be too happy about it either. My dad has had root canals done before. Big drill, then a fine, very fine flexible file is inserted to get all the root bits out. Then they clean it up and put a temporary crown or patch on it. It still gives my dad the shudders.

  48. Glogirly's North Carolina buddies (Sniper, Harper, Georgie and Saturn) hope she has a speedy recovery!

  51. Get well soon Glogirly, bless your heart. Thank goodness you have so many great nurses to care for you. Purrs

    ReplyDelete
  52. Well, hope Glogirly is doing OK. Mum looked up the common name of Apicoectomy, it is root canal. She said she had this done a couple of times and never got any fun drugs, she even drove herself to and from the place. So your thing must be furry bad!

  53. I hope you heal quickly. I will keep you in my thoughts.

  54. We are purring for a speedy recovery.

  55. We heard on FB that Glogirly survived her ordeal with the oral surgeon. We bet you two are being great and helpful nurses for her. Purring and praying for a fast and relatively quick recovery. Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  56. OK now I realize I need to postpone my oral surgery. It's high season for me and my nurse team (mom). Second, on a fashion note--Katie and Waffles look like cat genies with those pink masks rather than nurses. I love it!
