Step on a crack ....

Allie: You've done it now, Brat. It's all your fault!


Faraday: What, Allie? Wha'd I do? I'm just hanging out with my harness and stuffs.
You're just sore because you're inside and I'm out here.

Allie: Well, yes. But that's not what I'm talking about.
Don't you see what you did over there?
You stepped on a crack.

  
Faraday: So ...? I fails to see the problem, Allie.


Allie: Don't you know anything, Brat?  That's why Mother's back has two fractures.
YOU DID IT.
 

Faraday:  Uhhhh ... *gulp*


Maxwell: You'd better come in, dood. Now.
You know, before you break Papa's back, or something.

Wait. Allie risks that every time he picks up her massive --- OW! OW!
Fine. I was just going....


Not to worry, Faraday. You're not to blame (a bit of overenthusiastic kickboxing, maybe, but not you).

I know we've been a bit scarce recently, and this is one of the reasons why. After opinions, second opinions and a trip back to Mayo in mid-October, they discovered bilateral fractures in the lower back/SI area. So that's what's been causing all the pain!

We'll spare you the details but it's all connected to the stuff Mayo diagnosed earlier in the year and plans are underway to get our mom back to bouncing off the walls again (heaven help us) real soon.

In the meantime, we're avoiding any and all cracks in the sidewalk. Just in case.

  10. Oh no! Back issues are never a good thing. Mom and I just went to the chiropractor this morning as her back was all messed up and mine always needs adjusting. Hope you are bouncing off walls again soon!

  12. A kitty curled up on the sore spot is the best heating pad ever created, unless you want to lay on your back, then something flatter works better. We hope you feel better soon.

  13. Your poor mom! And I cannot believe what you insinuated about Allie's weight, Maxwell. I'd sleep with both eyes open for quite awhile!

  17. UGH! I am so sorry to read this. Back pain is one of the worst. I had back surgery a few years ago and the result was incredible. I hope it goes as well for you!

  21. We hope your mom is feeling better soon ! But Allie, it's not nice to blame Faraday for it, and Maxwell, it's not nice either to let us think that Allie is so overweight that she could hurt your dad's back ! Purrs

  22. Allie, don't make Faraday feel bad for your mom not taking it easy and overdoing it..

    I hope she takes this seriously and relaxes.. even though I know full well she won't. :)
