My Friend Is Temporary Housebound With Her Pet Cat.

It was last Saturday evening when I received a whatsapp message from a friend informing me that she was hospitalized and waiting for surgery. She was taking in the clean laundry from the clothes lines and both arms were hugging the big pile of laundry in front of her, She thought she knew her way well but too bad, she mis-judged her steps and her right foot went into the small drain and she went forward still clutching her clothes with both arms.

Instantly, she felt a terrible sharp pain in her right foot but she got up and hobbled in with the clothes. In spite of the terrible pain, she continue to hang out the rest of the laundry to dry. When the husband returned home for lunch later, he insisted on taking the wife to hospital for an x-ray. The x-ray showed 2 fractured bones in the right foot. Since she has taken lunch, the doctor couldn't do the surgery on her foot. The surgery was postponed to the next day after she had fasted.
 Took this sunrise shot on our way out for breakfast after our walking exercise. I had guest over in the morning and I messaged my friend that I could only visit her after lunch.
 She sent this photo of her bound up leg to me after she was discharged from the hospital.
 Her son opened the front door for me. My friend was sitting on her bed folding the clean laundry. She is one very active lady and couldn't sit still. It will be very boring for her, plus she is the only woman in the house to do all the housework. Beside her on the bed, was the family's pet kitty keeping her company.
 This kitty was an abandoned kitty when her husband found her by the roadside.
 Kitty's name is Bagheera. An Indian name meaning Black Panther.
 Kitty came over to me for some pats and tickles. Then Kitty stuck out its tongue and went back to sleep.
 Kitty enjoyed her cat-nap while we chatted.
 It started off as an abandoned baby but now is enjoying all the love and care.
 Kitty is loved and so pampered, enjoying a good life.
I ended my visit and said goodbye. Kitty didn't even opened its eyes, it just stretched and went back to nap again.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

GOD made my life complete when I placed all the pieces before Him.

When I cleaned up my act, He gave me a fresh start.

Indeed, I've kept alert to GOD's ways; I haven't taken God for granted.

Every day I review the ways He works, I try not to miss a trick.

I feel put back together, and I'm watching my step.

GOD rewrote the text of my life when

I opened the book of my heart to His eyes.

(2 Samuel 22:21-25, The Message-MSG)

  11. I am so sorry about your friend. It will be hard, with no other women in the house. But she does have Kitty as a loyal companion. Too bad kitty cannot do the cooking and cleaning.

    1. I was told the doctor inserted some wires into the foot to hold the fractured bones connecting to the last 2 toes. She has to wait for the bones to mend themselves. Have a wonderful day, Mun!
