This example of such a sequence appears to end up in a pattern which
appears at first glance to be repeatable infinitely and grows basically
as slow as possible:
1 -> 3 -> 4 -> 5 -> 6 -> 7 -> 8 -> 9 -> 17 -> 26 -> 37 -> 49 -> 57 -> 69
-> 77 -> 88 -> 95 -> 177 -> 266 -> 385 -> 497 -> 558 -> 699 -> 707 ->
866 -> 979 -> 1585 -> 2292 -> 3866 -> 4977 -> 5588 -> 6992 -> 7077 ->
8668 -> 9793 -> 15855 -> 22929 -> 38686 -> 49797 -> 55858 -> 69962 ->
70777 -> 86688 -> 97939 -> 158585 -> 229292 -> 386866 -> 497977 ->
558588 -> 699662 -> 707777 -> 866888 -> 979393 -> 1585855 -> 2292929 ->
3868686 -> 4979797 -> 5585858 -> 6996632 -> 7077777
I don't think this particular sequence is necessarily worthy of
inclusion in the OEIS because I suspect there are many such
sequences, this just happens to be the one I found.
