What happens when you take an adorable but hyper little cat, a dark room, a solid wood pointy corner and me? A massive, painful bruise.
Sunday-into-Monday late night about 2am or so, I’m getting ready for bed. Love, of course, is already long since in bed and sleeping so the master bedroom is fully dark. I drop off my phone next to my side of the bed like I always do and head back towards the bathroom. Well, Gracie is a spaz and she goes darting out in front of me and I stumble and bash my left upper thigh directly into the corner of the bed.
Take a cat….
…add a solid wood corner…
…look like this.
(As an aside, it turns out to be very difficult to photograph one’s own outer, upper thigh. And even more so that a bruise shows up on “film” as dark and ugly as it looks in person. I wish it looked as good as this in real life because in person, it’s shocking.)
All day yesterday, my leg was swollen in the bruised area. And even today, my whole leg just aches. Normally, a bruise hurts a lot when you touch it of course, but this hurts constantly and touching it is unbearable. It is so miserable. I cannot wait until the muscle stops being so sore because man, it is not fun.
Moral of the story is that cute kitties come at a price.

Inadvertently became the face of Healthcare Reform in America by posting the (in)famous "I am Obamacare" image and sharing the story of her hysterectomy at age 34. Now runs her own small business, PhoenixFire Designs, specalizing in handmade tree of life pendants, full moon tree of life necklaces, family birthstone jewelry, wire wrapped jewelry and more full-time.
Our best friend passed away suddenly March 13, 2010. Five years later, it's still hard. The full story can be read here.
Hysterectomy FundOctober 2013 Update: Happy 2 Year Anniversary!! I'm amazed at how different life is two years later. Though the hardest thing I've ever been through in my life, I've grown so much as a result of having overcome such terrifying and daunting medical issues. In a weird way, I'm better for having experienced these hardships. I'm more sure of myself these days and more confident I can face life's challenges better.
I have tried to turn this medical challenge into an opportunity and using this as a means to push forward with my small jewelry business and as a way to support myself again.
Your continued support is appreciated right now and even links to my shop are appreciated. Thank you to everyone who's helped and spread the word. All of you helped make it possible for me to be here and healthy.
