Toe Update (Warning! May induce vomitting in the weak stomached ... like myself)

Wednesday, May 28, 2008
I popped in to see my geekily cute doctor today to see if he had anything to say about the state of my mangled toe. I can't remember his exact words but he started off with a bit of poetry which essentially asked "What's up with your toe?". Always a good sign. Turns out, nothing he can do. No surprise there. I was more worried if all the fluid collecting under the nail (ugh...sorry for that) would need to be drained, the nail removed, or something else equally icky. Turns out no. The nail has bubbled a bit on the one side but no danger. He's not worried about infection but did say the nail might come off on it's own. I'm just supposed to keep an eye on it now just in case the toe begins turning red (bad!). I must be losing my mojo. I couldn't convince him that this required me to rest, elevate, and take the rest of the week off of work. Nuts. Ah well.

As you can see from the picture above, the nail is turning a lovely darker shade. I'm guessing that by the end of the week, it'll be dark purple if not black. Yeah! That's just what you want in time for sandal season. Very attractive. Please accept my apologies for not taking better care of my little piggies over the winter. But enough of this talk about my newly deformed digits. In hockey news, Pittsburgh has finally scored! They're leading 1-0 after the first period of game 3. Let's hope they can keep or increase that lead and win at least one game in this series.

And, thanks to all who've made the lovely comments about the quality of my teeth. I'll pass them along to my parents since they're sort of responsible...although I think I must be adopted as neither of them have straight teeth, nor does my brother. Hmmm, odd. I don't like to brag but I'm pretty proud of my teeth. Would you believe I've never had braces?

Those of us who wore several braces, for several years are now snarling right at you. Grrr.
