Today's theme is "a new pair of shoes."

Looking down at the stumps of my thighs, I knew it would be a rough morning.

I dragged myself into the kitchen and ate my way through the food inside.

The horrendous pain came next.

Biting down on a dishrag helps a little.

Close your eyes. Try not to scream.

When the burning sensation dulled to a warm ache, I flexed my new toes and stood up, wobbling slightly and steadying myself with a chair.

The old ones are rotting in the hallway.

I hope these feet are a size I've already got. Buying new shoes is such a hassle.
