I won’t promise not to post pictures, but I’ll give you fair warning first. And there will be no pictures this time.
My toe is infected. Left big toe. It doesn’t hurt (it hurt a ton on Tuesday, less on Wednesday, and not all now), but the toenail is lifted away from the toe a little, and apparently it’s gross underneath. (According to John. I don’t bend that way, so I can’t see.) The doctor says I’m going to lose the nail, which is also gross, but at least it’s delayed grossness. Right now, from my point of view and most of the rest of the world’s, my toenail is still attached, looks normal, and is a pretty cotton-candy pink. How did it happen? No idea. I wish I knew so I could avoid whatever caused it. The doctor asked me if I run, I said yes, and she shrugged and said it happens. Not helpful. Also ew.
