Cat Waylays Foot

Friday, November 20, 2015

Here's a photo of my Artistic black cat. He sits in the corner by the front door . I use him sometimes to hold the door open.

Somehow by accident I caught my right foot in the whiskers , injuring my toes. Needed a few stiches and some recovery time.

Warning, I have ugly feet. My big toe is smaller than other toes. Trait that runs in the family.

Here's how feet look this morning. You may notice two toes on right foot were the injured ones.

Besides foot being swollen, the stitches needed to reattach little toe needs antiseptic applied.
The pain is minimal, now. At first believe me it was off the charts.

Still don't fit into shoes. Didn't mind so much the weather was rainy, didn't mind staying in. But this weekend even though it's cool the sun is out and would love to go to the park. I'm sure Titan would too.
Speaking of Titan, he has been my constant companion.
The first photo is a little lump under the covers, lump is Titan, where he goes to avoid TV.
Next photo is a sleeping Titan. As I write this blog, Titan is in the same place, stretched out sleeping.

I'm not as worried about being able to find shoes to ware to the family Thanksgiving dinner .
I think the swelling will be minimal and out of the 80 pairs of shoes I own, something will fit.
Hate to have to resort to my ugly "fat" sandals. I kept them as a reminder of those limited years. The obese me who only had TWO pairs of shoes. Ones that I could slip on with out bending over, without laces, no buckles . They are also a size 10 1/2 wide.
My normal shoe is a 9 med. width.

Thank you friends who have reached out and wished me speedy recovery.
You all mean a great deal to me.

Have a nice weekend.

    Oh my word...I totally relate to toe pain, I've broken 3 and re-damaged my left pinky toe. Why is it that the smallest parts of our bodies hurt the worse? I'm praying for a speedy recovery.

    I hope your foot heals fast!

    Having been on my feet most of the day today at work (cement floor) I am being reminded how much the well being of our feet influences our overall feeling of well being.

    Have a great Thanksgiving and I hope your feet are comfortable for it.

    I was so sorry to hear about your accident! Hope you heal quickly! I agree with others to leave the heels at home and wear flats to your dinners for Thanksgiving. People will understand even if they are the "ugly" fat sandals and will sympathize with you for your accident. Take care!

    Ouch, Tisha emoticon
    Oh, it looks so swollen and sore...I can see how you might have caught it on one of those whiskers! Might need a new location! We all have weird feet...I knew a woman who had a long big toe, but the other four were all small and the same length!
    I hope you are going to be able to enjoy Thanksgiving...could you take slippers?
    Sweet Titan...your doggie nurse...what a little angel he is to stay by your side!
    Hugs to you both!

    Tisha, based on the foot shape chart, your ancestry is Greek.

    Even if the swelling is down by Thanksgiving, I think I'd leave the heels at home and wear some nice sensible flats! emoticon

    You must be on some heavy meds for that not to be hurting... Take care. emoticon

    Looks very painful. Wonder if we're related? My toe lengths are exactly like yours. emoticon

    Hope you heal soon, Little toes hurt a lot, you put pressure on them each time you walk, reminding you how useful they are. I badly broke my little toe once, it was sticking out sideways on my foot, luckily it was summer and I could wear sandals!
