Toe nail disaster
It was new years day and I became quite concerned about my ( L ) big toenail. It had been damaged from years of chemo and was growing with a crack through the nail. On Christmas day ,I caught it under the fridge door and made it bleed. (NO I hadnt been getting too many beers out of the fridge ) as my neighbor susgested so after a few choice words I cleaned it up.put on some Betadine ,dressing and got on with Christmas. I noticed it was weeping and by New years day I knew I had to do something more about it. Even the dog wasn't happy with the smell. I rang the medical centre and as luck would have it they were open and my G P was on . He looked at me and shook his head , saying " why couldn't it be something simple like B.P. ! So down to the treatment room we went. I'll just wiggle it to see if its loose,and before I .could say any choice words the nail was off. He was putting on a dressing when the fire alarm went off so we all had to evacuate very quickly . So with one shoe in hand and a script for antibiotics in the other we left the building , with everyone else. No fire thank goodness. Today I had chemo which I thought I'd get out of but my blood tests were good and I'm on antibiotics so I guess it will be a new years day to remember
