Beowabbit Health Report

Animals: baby squirrel sleeping
This is plumtreeblossom cross-posting to beowabbit's LJ, since our f'lists are not the same.

beowabbit is unwell right now. It began with increasing pain at the base of his skull over the past few days, limiting is mobility and and eventually eliminating his ability to drive or lay down comfortably in any position for long. When pain with swallowing became a thing yesterday morning, it was time to go to MIT Urgent Care to see a doctor.

A seed of fear had been planted in us about menengitis or other spinal/brain stem infection, but he examining doctor at MIT Medical ruled that out for now. It seems to be a serious muscle issue, possibly brought on by a too-tight CPAP mask strap, but we really just don't know how it came about. He has a bad reaction to the muscle relaxant he was prescribed (Cyclobenzaprine). It was as if he had been "roofied." A call to MIT Medical took him off that drug and onto regular Ibuprophen. Itwas a rough night, and I slept downstairs so that he could have the whole bed to find (semi) comfortable positions to lay in.

He's not well enough for visitors, but I know he would love to get messages and comments from friends. We're doing what we can to get him through this.

You were excellent to me after my eye surgery, and I would like to return the favor as soon as possible. I hope you heal quickly!

Just want to reiterate that either of you can call anytime even if it's just to get some reassurance that it's gonna be okay. *hugs*

Oh, dear! I'm so sorry. I hope they can figure out what's going on with the 'Wabbit soon.

If the universe where a just place (and sadly, we all know that it isn't), such a sweet, kind, and generous person as beowabbit would never suffer from a moment's ill health. I hope this latest bout resolves quickly and completely.

*hugs* to the 'Wabbit (and to plumtreeblossom for her care and worry).

I hope by the time this reaches you that you are well enough not to need these good wishes.

Heal well and swiftly, old friend.
