Toe Update

Thursday, June 12, 2008
Awwww. Are my stubby little curved toes just "oh-so-cute"? Well, except for the fact that one of them is a hideous purple colour... It's doing much better now, thanks to everyone who's inquired. I can walk relatively normally now and there's no pain. The nail, surprisingly, did not pop off as expected although the one side is still a bit deformed when you look at it straight on. Every day it seems to get just a tad bit darker... And what's with the white line across the bottom? Dark above dark below but a beautiful straight white line. Guess I truly am a freak. Shoes aren't too much of a problem as long as I'm not wearing anything too tight in the toe region. I even managed to walk to and from work yesterday and go for nice walk up and down some hills on the weekend. I think now it's safe to slap some polish on it and cover the hideousness that is my toenail. However, I hate painting my own nails and I just can't justify spending the money for a decent pedicure. Anyone want to do it for me? I'll cook dinner...

i lost a fingernail for the first time just a few weeks ago. it was a loooong process and i had the white line too....that's the new nail growing in. so, eventually part of the old nail where it's bruised will lift and you can eventually shed it as the new one takes over. quite fascinating to watch :D

Oh, I would paint your toes if I were there - but then I would probably nag you about not putting paint on them until it was more healed - thinking that the air getting to the bruise would be better - -

The white line - nails do weird things when healing - it may take a long time.....
