Saturday Musings

Today was a beautiful day! Sunny, breezy, not a cloud in the sky! I’ll bet it felt wonderful to be out there. I wouldn’t know. I was stuck in bed, unable to move without back spasms, jackhammers working in my head, nausea, vertigo, and severe leg pain. I was loaded up with painkillers and still couldn’t sleep. I tried to read, but couldn’t focus. I tried tv, but had no concentration. I wound up staring at the ceiling and crying, which did wonders for my head. Then I heard something. A jingle, like a bell. My furbaby Samantha jumped up on the bed. She put her paw on my arm and meowed softly. She proceeded to lay down next to me and started to purr. She kept one paw on me and fell asleep, still purring. I must have dozed off. When I awoke, it was 2 hours later, and my Sam was still laying next to me. She was awake, but I don’t think she left my side the entire time I slept. She looked at me with those huge green eyes and started to purr again. I realized I didn’t hurt so bad. My head felt better and I managed to sit up without pain. My babygirl had done her job again, without ever having had any training. She instinctively knows when I’m at my worst and need her nearby. She’s my angel, my therapist, my secret keeper, my confidante, my best friend, my pain relief, my comic relief (she always knows how to make me laugh!) She’s the heartbeat at my feet! I don’t know what I’d do without her! #PetTherapy #ChronicPain #ChronicLife
