Thankful Thursday: Hand, Tub & Hearthrob

Today, I am thankful for:

I was official discharged from occupational
therapy yesterday.  My broken bones in my
left hand are healed, and I've got about as much
strength back as possible.  My ring finger and pinky
still ghost outward, and that may never change.
Still a bit swollen too, but the doc says
I've got a few more months to go for things to be normal.
My upstairs bathroom is back at work!
The plumbing and drain lines were updated,
and The Hubby put in new flooring.
Newspaper found under the floor was dated 1924.
More updates are in store, once we get the downstairs
bathroom ripped apart then rebuilt.
Sly greets me almost every day now, and what a gorgeous
kitty he is!  How gratifying to have this fluffalicous mancat
run up to me, then fall over to offer his tummy?
Seriously, this boy is a little slice of heaven, and only
15 minutes away on foot!  His humans don't even bother to
step out of their home anymore; they see me and (I'm sure) shake
their heads in dismay.  C'mon, look at him!
Let's Hop!

Yay on finally getting your paw back nearly 100%. It was a long hard road I know with PT and OMCs I would have a time waiting and wondering.
Love your manicure too.
Speaking of hands...Bravo to your most handy hubby. Bathroom looks beautiful. Is that the original claw foot tub?
Sly is a most handsome gray guy

So much to be thankful for...glad your hand is better and you got your tub back. What a relief! And Sly...what a handsome fella!

What good news - and what a beautiful neighbor !

The first time I dislocated a finger, the ER doc told me they always compare the injured hand to the other one because people's fingers are not really perfectly straight. So don't worry about your hand as long as you can use it and it doesn't hurt !

Those are great things to be thankful for! We're glad you're done with the hand rehab, and we love the "new" bathroom. The Hubby must have been working like a demon on it! Sly is a doll, all right.

Good news about your hand =)
The bathroom is lovely. It's so cool about the 1924 newspaper. I love historical stuff!
How can you NOT love Sly. What a honey heart ♥
