Hey It’s Jet Here.
Part of my Scooby Doo Academy curriculum focuses on health and wellness. This section includes my own health and wellness as well as others. My sister, Koko, had a special knack in this area. When Mom burned her foot a few years ago, Koko knew the exact location and tried to minister cleanings every day. Unfortunately, the burn needed more intensive human treatment, requiring special bandaging. Koko licked around the bandage and gently laid her chin over Mom’s foot every day for about four months to protect from further injury. Koko also did therapy work as I’ve shared before; she provided a great model for me.
Yesterday, Mom finally spent some time at home. I heard her tell my Auntie Liz that she would finish knitting her scarf by bedtime. (She and Auntie Liz have an art show next week at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. Mom sold more knitted items and spice mixes recently than expected (yippee, more biscuits), which means she has to knit and blend really, really fast to increase this thing called inventory by next week!
Anyway, she spent a few hours knitting yesterday. I kept her company and practiced my nursing skills. From all the walking at that Art Basel stuff she had two boo-boos on her foot. I licked her wounds for so long, I put myself to sleep! Jetty, thank you for your loving care yesterday, you made me feel better. You have a gentle touch, just like Koko did. Your welcome Mom.
My favorite part of nursing Mom’s feet is when she puts this stuff called Shea Butter on her boo-boos. I must control myself because I want to lick it right off her foot. Mom always asks me to wait while she covers her boo-boo and then lets me lick the small amount of shea butter still on her finger.
Another great and helpful day.
