Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: No Broken Bones

thankful thursday blog hop maxwell 05302024

Hello everyone, it’s me Maxwell and I’m here for Angel Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Thanks to you all for stopping by. We are always thankful to each of you for joining us!  Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to Angel Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today I will be brief, well, maybe I will, maybe I won’t. But, we’re all thankful that there were no broken bones. Oh, I probably should explain huh? It was the Dad, he fell down and went boom. It looked like it hurt and it scared us too. His right foot went cattywampus and he let out a pretty big meow followed by some HBO words. He was able to get up and he sure was hobbling around. It was late in the evening and he didn’t feel like going anywhere so he just iced it up a bit.

The next morning it sure was swollen, he had a pretty fat foot. When he finally went to an urgent care they did an x-ray and the good news was that there were no broken bones. They said it was some soft tissue damage and it should be mostly better in a week or two. So, that’s what we are thankful for today, no broken bones.

So, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Hey Pet Bloggers, don’t forget to leave your daily link over at The Cat Blogosphere for a chance to grab an entry for the end of the month drawing.  Okay, that’s it for now!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Ouch, ouch and ouch! I’m also glad nothing was broken. It takes a long time for bones to knit. All of you sit on your dad and keep him still and quiet and off the foot so it will heal, okay?

Oh, gosh, I’m thankful your dad didn’t break anything either! It can happen so easily too, even if you practice balance exercises every day. Tell your dad to rest the foot; I sure hope he heals quickly! 🙏❤️

Maxwell, that doesn’t sound good at all! Dad having a bad hind paw. He better not think on mowing the grass. Just let the geese eat it. We hope it gets well furry fast. Hoomans do not have 9 lives, you know, like us kitties when we take a tumble. Precious

Well, I’m thankful your Dad is more or less OK! I’ve had soft tissue damage too and boy, it’s painful. But it heals up nicely and thank goodness it isn’t a broken bone.

We are thankful for the same thing you are, Maxwell. that your dad had no broken bones, that my Mama had none when she fell and that daddy had none when he fell a week ago… so happy it will heal itself but sad for all of you that dad has to hobble for a while…

Laila and Angel Minchie

Wow, the dad really has a lot to be thankful for today knowing that his foot is not broken. And you guys must be very thankful that the mom is there to take care of and spoil you guys while the dad is on the mend. .

Oh nose! Your poor Dad! He was so smart to put ice on it. My Mom would have said, no to ice cause she hates that I’m gonna have frostbite from it feeling, then it would have swollen up so big she probably couldn’t have gotten it through the car door to go for help. *te he* (So sorry, not funny) **te he* Anyway, we all hope it stops hurting soon and is all better.

Oh no! We’re glad to hear there were no broken bones and have our paws crossed that your dad heals quickly.

OMG it’s so scary to fall. SO glad you’re bones are intact but soft tissue takes longer than bones to heal. Still…
I now walk down the stairs like a hundred year old woman clinging to the rail, just in case. One false move, or one moment of a foot giving out and it’s a long way down.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH NO goodness me I am very very x 87 glad Dad didn’t break anything. Those soft tissue things are a real pain though. I have been using SalonPas patches furever for those injuries. I really and truly think they are magical. Many years ago while I was till working I step off a curb onto a pine cone. My ankle rolled over big time. Thankfully my Bryan was with me. I hobbled to the car when I got home I iced it then put a SalonPas on it. Next day it was really swollen but the sorness was much… Read more »

Your dad kind of reminds us of our mom, always something with health or injury cropping up. Glad your dad didn’t do anything too serious to his ankle.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder

Dearest Terry,
Wishing you a speady recovery from that nasty fall.
Have you checked your BP to make sure this is not due to a very low BP…?
Aging is not for the faint of heart!
Loved Maxwell’s phrase: he let out a pretty big meow followed by some HBO words. We all manage to speak an additional language when things like that happen…Hugs,

Wow, that is great news that you dad has no broken bones. With parents in the age group of yours and ours, falls can have some bad consequences. Our mom falls often, and we are always afraid she’ll break something again.Give Dad Terry lots of extra love and cuddles while he recuperates.
