Today was sort of a good day.  I got a lot of work done on my various projects.  It was actually one of my most productive days in awhile which is a good feeling.

My routes went smoothly.

Kyra was beyond good.  She even took her nap slightly early and without a fight, which is great. 

 I finally got a doctors appointment for my toe.  I haven’t talked about it on here though, but it has been infected for over a month now.  It is slowly getting worse and not better.  Well, it did get better slightly from last week.  It was about 1/2 inch wider last week, but than something happened and it bursted.  Ever since than it has been leaking off and on…

Well, anyways.  I went to the doctor today and he said it was a really bad ingrown toenail. (Here is the picture…that yellow stuff all around the inside of my nail is where it drains, blah…)  I knew it was bad or else I wouldn’t have been there.  He gave me antibiotic prescription. (I told him I had stolen Kyra’s prescription and took them.)  He told me that he didn’t think it would heal, but there was a chance and I should take it.  So, I have 7 days worth….here to hoping it heals.

If it doesn’t heal.  I have to go to a special toe doctor.  Yeah, those exist…wow.  I always thought toes were too far from your heart to kill you, like my dad always used to say when I kicked something and screamed ouch or whatever.  I was always hurting my feet.  Yeah, things that go wrong with your toes can kill you or so my doctor said today.

Well, anyways..the doctor said that after I go to this special foot doctor.  That this doctor will probably recommend my toe nail be removed.  Yeah, blah.  A toe without a nail.  Has anyone reading here had this done that would be willing to send me a photo of there toe without a nail.  I need to get this image in my head because right now it doesn’t sound to pretty.  Can you paint the skin to make it look like a nail? 

Anyways…that was my day.  It wasn’t really as bad as this sounds.  I have a pretty high tolerance for pain, so my toe doesn’t hurt as much as even I would expect it too.  I mostly just looks bad and hurts some if you like touch is roughly.  Well, off to bed…Night.
