The Bad Knee Boy & Mister Kitten

The day before yesterday my son came home limping because his knee hurt.  He hadn't twisted it.  But we iced & gave him an anti-inflammatory & waited to see how it was.  Yesterday I took him to the doc-in-the-box.  They x-rayed, poked, & prodded and determined that it was probably growing pains.  Then they sent us home with another anti-inflammatory.  I gave him that about 2ish.  By 5ish, one side of his upper lip was swelling.  He was already in my bed and calling for Mister Kitten (his cat!).  By 10ish, his right palm and fingers had swollen and part of his left hand.  Mister Kitten was definitely needed!!  So was the nurse on call!  We agreed that the night dose of the new med should not be taken and an antihistamine was called for.  Since he takes one anyway, we went with that.

Thus, Corwyn slept with me so that I could keep an eye on him.  As usual, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde were on the bed [Thomas, I do not need your help writing this!!].  My son was restless during the first part of the night and I didn't get any sleep as he kept waking and calling for Mister Kitten.  Now normally, Mister Kitten prefers to sleep right beside me trying to knock me off the bed or on top of me to see if he can smush my legs.  Last night however, during the time my son was calling for him, when I placed Mister Kitten beside him and Corwyn gently petted him and calmed down; he settled in beside Corwyn's bad knee and cuddled up to him.  awwwwwwwwww!  Of course, later he was beside my legs and trying to see if he could take over my side of the bed.  ::rolls eyes::  [Thomas, I do not need your help writing this!!]

This morning, when Corwyn woke up, he was feeling a bit better.  He immediately called for his cat.  When I pulled out the morning treats he had to feed Mister Kitten.  Now I've got three cats (Mister Kitten, Star, and Thomas) and a boy on the bed.  His Highness Zaphoid is downstairs on the cat condo wishing that the cat door was open.  But that's another story.

[Thomas, I really can write this without you helping!!!]


In honor of February being Neuter & Spay month'
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde reminds everyone:
Neuter & Spay-It's the Only Way!!


  1. Wow what a night - and what a crummy thing for Corwyn to have to go through. First it was just pain and then the stuff to fix it makes him worse! We are sending him lots of purrs to get better soon! And we know he will have lots of kitty love there to help!

  2. Oh, sending healing vibes to your son! Ugh, that would have been a miserable thing to go through, poor sweetie.

    As for Thomas, I'm sure he's just checking grammar and spelling for you!

  3. Corwyn is now giggling & clapping his hands even though his face is splotchy! His hands & lip are not swollen anymore and we are still waiting for a call back from the doctor's office. Star came up to see if he could help write the comment but decided that Corwyn could do the job just as well. ::grin:: With luck, all of the healing purrs & vibes will make Corwyn feel all better soon! Thanks!!
