Why all of you go gai gai so often huh??

Past few days, Nai Nai, Mummy and Uncle Alex been leaving the house very early and leaving me and Gor alone at home...they seemed so so busy and Nai Nai been lying on the bed if they at home. Nai Nai been looking pale and in pain..I am worried but I dunno wat is wrong with her..I tried my best to comfort Nai Nai by sleeping next to her so she is warm...Mummy been busy cleaning up the house and buying loads of things to stock up the fridge too...heard them saying need to be at horse-pit-the by 6am this saturday and Nai Nai cant eat or drink from friday night onwards...why huh? Where Nai Nai going??? we are so puzzled and I dun like to be alone at home lor...:(

Scrabby Mummy - Sorry babies, not that we purposely neglect both you and Gor but Nai Nai is in great pain and need to go for a Laminectomy surgery at the hospital (not Horse-pit-the) this Saturday and Uncle Alex will need to accompany Nai Nai more often when she is there...promise to make up to both of you ok? Mummy is busy cleaning up the house before Nai Nai goes for surgery and also to stock up on canned food for you and Gor as no time to cook HCF for you sorry. Pls be more understanding and be COOPERATIVE during this period, dun give Mummy problems huh..dun be naughty hor..OK??!

This is a explaination of wat Laminectomy surgery is abt..

A lumbar laminectomy (open decompression) is a surgical procedure that is performed to alleviate pain caused by neural impingement. The laminectomy surgery is designed to remove a small portion of the bone over the nerve root and/or disc material from under the nerve root to give the nerve root more space and a better healing environment. A laminectomy is effective to decrease pain and improve function for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is a condition that primarily afflicts elderly patients, and is caused by degenerative changes that result in enlargement of the facet joints. The enlarged joints then place pressure on the nerves, and this pressure may be effectively relieved with a lumbar laminectomy.

  1. Scrabby,

    I hope that your nai nai will have a speedy recovery. Spinal pain is one of the worst pain on earth.
