#CFFC – Fun Photo – Hands and Paws

My husband came home from hospital on Friday afternoon and is recuperating at home for a month before seeing the neurologist again in mid-February and the physician at the beginning of March. He is doing very well and its going to be a long month for him as his screen time is limited and he may not work.

Cee’s photo challenge this week is Hands and Paws. Here are a few pictures of mainly paws. I don’t seem to be much in the habit of taking pictures of people’s hands.

White lioness
Fondant dormouse in a fondant teacup – you can see part of the teapot cake behind (I made this cake for my mother’s 84th birthday last year)
You can see the bottom of the lioness’ paws (the pads) in this picture
Caracul – she only has three legs because one had to be amputated after she was caught in a trap. She lives in an animal sanctuary.
Fondant kitten with paws in the air in a fondant poppy
My circus strongman’s clenched hands were quite difficult to model and attach

  2. Hi,
    I’m a cat lover so of course I love the poses from the nice huge cats. 😊
    Hoping that your hubby doesn’t get bored and become impatient. He needs to heal completely.

    1. Hi Liz, it is a relief to have him home and I think we’ve dealt with the post hospital issues now. I think all the medical dramas I’ve dealt with in my life prepared me well to deal with this situation and do the right things when needed. It made all the difference to his recovery. I love cats in every shape and form.

  3. I am beyond excited to hear that Terrence is at home and on the road to recovery. I know that your presence will be especially comforting to him. This unanticipated journey is not for the faint of heart. You entire family is in my thoughts and prayers. Love those paws!!!

    1. HI Rebecca, Terence is doing amazingly well. We were so lucky to be in the doctor’s rooms with him on a drip when he had the seizure. The nurse put the medication straight through the line and that made the world of difference. I was also able to keep him on the bed by putting my whole body over him and the bed. The doctor said that was the only way someone my size could keep someone his size on the bed so I was pleased I done the right thing.

  4. I hope your husband bounces back quickly. It will be a good sign if he starts getting restless because that will mean he’s feeling better.

    1. Thank you, Cindy. The strong man was one of the statuettes I made for my mom’s circus wedding anniversary cake in September. The dormouse in a teacup and teapot cake were for mom’s 84th birthday in October.

    1. He has made an excellent recovery and is now able to read books and watch the odd movie. While he was in hospital, he listened to audio books that I downloaded for him. I would also go crazy without books. They saw me through the pandemic.

      1. Books did, didn’t they?
        I hadn’t thought of the audio book option…
        (Which I don’r use. I like the print and paper. And I read much faster (took some fast reading classes) than any speech.
        But all options are good.

      2. Interesting. Fast reading is a key asset when one deals with a lot of written stuff. (Law is one of those).
        Now, it’s a good point to chose a slower pace… (But then I would read less books… Darn…) 😉
        Husband ok? One day at a time?

  5. Hi Robbie, I’m so glad your husband is at home recovering. Can you adjust your work schedule to have more time at home? Your paws are wonderful, from fondant to lions. Sending you and your family my best wishes.

    1. Hi Jennie, thank you, I’m glad you like the pictures. I am currently working from home. I usually only go into the office twice a week but I won’t do that until after the next doctor’s appointment. We work for the same company so everyone is being very supportive.

  6. Yay upon your husband coming home!
    Best wishes to him and all his loving family!

    Your paw pics are amazing. Who has paw pics like these? No one!
    Okay, I’m on the Sr Chocolate journey.
    I read Sir Chocolate and the strawberry cream berries last night.
    I’m letting things settle in. I will probably have 1 or 2 questions on each book. May I annoy you with email questions? My questions are odd, but pertinent.

      1. Yay! I’ve got my first odd question. I’m heading out shortly and will write when I get home.
        I’m replying from my street art blog.

  7. Hi Robbie, I’m glad your husband is home now. You’re right that it will be a long month of waiting for his next appointment. I hope he’s able to rest. I loved the fondant kitten with the paws up in the poppy – so cute!

  8. Robbie, such great news about your husband now being able to be home to recuperate further. It’s a good sign when he becomes bored and longs to do more – hoping for very good news from further doctor appointments. You’re both in my thoughts.

    I love your paw pictures – of course, there would be lions and your creation for your mother’s birthday is exquisite and cute! The strongman is terrific and I wish for such a waist! Haha!

    1. Hi Annika, we have been very fortunate with Terence’s good recovery. There don’t seem to be any major problems although there are some smaller ones. I am a big lion fan and you are right about strong man’s slender waist 😂
