Lion had the waxing station all set up when I got home. It still needed a little more time to melt so we had dinner first. I dragged the waxing table out and got everything set up. Lion took his place and I waxed his balls, around his penis and a little bit of his tummy and upper thighs. Then, Lion got on his hands and knees so I could wax his crack. I’m always nervous when he’s on his hands and knees on the table. Apparently I was prescient.
As Lion dismounted, he moved his leg awkwardly and went sailing through the air onto his butt. Hard. I immediately thought he broke something. My mother had a hard fall, basically it was a hard sit, and broke her back. It was a crush injury, which I’ve heard are worse than “normal” breaks. Anyway, I waited for Lion to process what happened and register any pain. It seemed he hadn’t broken anything. He did have pain on his right side and muscle spasms.
Needless to say, I wasn’t going to spank him. He could barely move. I wasn’t going to have him face down on the bed so I could inflict more pain. He insisted he was available for anything. I decided he wasn’t. Well, he might have been but I wasn’t going to attempt anything. He needed to rest. I filled him full of pain drugs and took care of him. He had a heating pad under him for a while and we slept off and on. This morning, he still needed help so I’m home with him. The good news is that he seems to be in less pain this afternoon and the spasms seem to be lessening. He’s up and about, moving slowly, but moving which is a step in the right direction.
I know you’ll shake your head and tell me I’m wrong, but I don’t think I’ll spank him tonight either. The worst thing I could do is go back to business as usual too quickly. Why push it? Is there any harm in letting him heal for another night? It’s not because I’m forgetting. It’s not because I’m letting him off the hook. There is a legitimate reason for delaying the punishment.
Tonight will be for resting and snuggling. Tomorrow is another day.
