This involved cutting two straps from old sandals and making holes in them. Boom, instant expanders! The old buckles are the brown suede ones to the right of the shinier buckles. My new Birkenstocks are the same style as my old ones except the new pair is black and not suede. I loved my old ones but the soles were so worn that the tacks were starting to come through. The podiatrist had commented several times that these shoes are good for my feet!
I have to go back to his office again next week to be checked again. Meanwhile there is less pain every day.
Me: "I am so surprised because my doctor told me I have loose ligaments and that's how I injured my foot! But it's weird because Flash and I are not related."
I'm sure the vet already knew that Flash was adopted! Anyway, Flash now has a prescription for painkillers. Also, I guess long walks are no longer a treat for him.
