The only comparison I can make to previous experiences, was the night after my first back surgery, when I had 5 doses of Morphine, and it still didn’t take. I’m walking around bent over when I do walk. Laughing hurts, sneezing hurts, coughing hurts, and I have a cold!
Since this is a sudden, and unexpected change, I’m calling my GP tomorrow. If nothing else, the IUD may have moved. As for the Big Fat Cat, it wasn’t for chasing any mice that might be in our house. It was for placing on my belly, to sooth the pain.
Update January 23: I called the doctor’s office today, and I’ve got an appointment for Wednesday, to check things out. And while we’re on the subject of cats, here are a few I drew once:
