Busted! My first entry and it's from jail. Friday night I accidentally knocked over a dish from the counter and sent is crashing very loudly to the floor. It startled me so I flew off the counter and landed the wrong way on my paw. Mom noticed me limping but since I didn't react to having it looked at, was bearing some weight on it, and since it wasn't swollen she decided to give it a few days to see if it would get better on it's own. Monday I was still limping so I had to go to the vet (did I mention I hate the vet's office?). The vet said it was a mild sprain and should heal on it's own. I got a few days of medications and was told I have to stop using the paw if it is to heal. Cage rest, can you believe it! I'm now inmate Emmett. Thankfully he only thinks I'll need a few days of cage rest and then watched for a week or so after that so I don't keep jumping on and off the furniture.
