Footcraft Friday: Lobster Love


At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

How cute is this hand and footprint lobster craft? Do you remember that episode of Friends where Phoebe says Ross is Rachel’s lobster (if you don’t, check out the full series on Netflix. So worth it.) For those who don’t yet have time to binge-watch, I’ll give you a quick explanation: lobsters mate for life, an unusual display of commitment within the animal kingdom.

You know who else we have a lifetime commitment with? Our kids! But the thing is, their little feet only stay little for so long…and then you blink and they’re suddenly grown-ups. Want a cute project to preserve the memory of their precious foot prints? Try this adorable project from Crafty Crafted.
