Thankful Thursday: Wand Toy

Tomorrow, I see my hand surgeon.  Most likely, my pins will come out.  Just typing that makes me squirm… however many people have told me it's no big deal, including the surgeon!

Adjusting to only using my right hand has been interesting. Doorknobs have been the worst! Eating a sandwich one-handed can be a challenge also.  Hooking one's brassiere, and pulling on or off clothes, is almost a comedy.

I am thankful for all of the assistance that I've received from The Hubby especially, and coworkers, and family members.  Everyone has bolstered my emotions, when I was frustrated, feeling blue, or when I tried to do too much!  Turns out, many folks have similar stories to mine, about their hand or fingers, a toe or ankle, knees, elbows, shoulders, etc.  Knowing that I am in such company, I feel slightly less squirmy…and I vow to face the un-pinning with good humor!

And, you know how to play with a wand cat toy?

Manny and I played 'catch the ribbon', while he luxuriated
in a commonly seen box!

I had a Neko Flies toy in my right hand, for Chili Bruce, and the tie-died fabric wand toy stuck into my splint and bandages for Manny!  It worked!

P.S.  I corrected my post from yesterday.  I came across Chuck's photo from a year ago, and he looked so handsome!  I miss him, and am joyful that we brought two Chuck look-alikes into our home; Da Boyz are a delight, even as they tear up the place.  Thank you for your kind comments.

Let's HOP!

Good luck on the unpinning ceremony and we hope all is back to normal for you! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

I hope the pin removal is quick and easy for you. I so can relate to having to use one hand when I was in that shoulder sling for 6 weeks. I didn't wear a bra for about two months and most clothes were slip on/stretchy types only! Will you need any physical therapy?

The Whiskeratti said...

That's a very clever, and practical, way to hold the toy. Good luck tomorrow.

Sandee said...

I hope you can get the pins out and resume with the physical therapy. I hate have a boo boo for so long.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. ♥

We're sendin' hugs and purrayers fur your hand 'pointment. Mommy's been in similar situations and she says it's not the big things that are really annoyin', it's the small things like tryin' to pull on your unnerpants or button your shirt. MOL

Luv ya'

Your ability to multitask with multi cats is admirable even in the pre-appointment state! Good luck tomorrow!

when I fell (the same way you did!!) a few weeks ahead of you, if it wasn't for the fact I was wearing my giant, PADDED Lions jacket, I think the same thing would have happened. I feel so bad you had to go through this and thankfully it will be over soon!

Paws crossed for your paw healing, although that did look like a neat way to hold a cat toy. Just as long as the PT you have to do with it involves waving wands we think Da Boyz will cope.

Tamago said...

I hope un-pinning will go smoothly and soon you'll be able to use your left hand fully! It's very creative how you hold the wand toy :-)

Roby Sweet said...

Hope the unpinning goes well and you will soon have 2 fully functioning paws! :)

Hope your pins are now history and you're well on the mend!-Tom

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

We hope you're back to normal soon. My cats wouldn't be happy with one-handed rubs - that's for sure! But multi-tasking at play time?!? One or the other of my cats is likely to get a little close to the other while playing so I'll leave that to the pros :)

The Indulged Furries said...

Today is tomorrow, so I hope your appointment with the surgeon went well and the pins were removed.

Cleo said...

Yikes, pins!! Hope all went well. That is indeed a very creative way to play with that wand. Way to make use of that thing on your arm!
