So the neuropathy in my finger tips must be getting better because, when the nail doctor ‘trimmed’ off the bad nails, I was left with areas of my nails having a very odd sensation – and there is no mistaking that I’m feeling it! The doctor trimmed the bad parts but I told him that I’d have to fire him as an esthetician. For the remainder of the afternoon I was paranoid about my nails getting caught on things.
So, tomorrow I have a follow up appointment with the nail doctor – at his other clinic – where he will remove both my big toes. The one on the right is showing signs of cultivating an infection.
One the directions from the nail doctor was that I was not to do dishes until my nails have cleared up 🙂 … so there you have it … (to be honest Scott had already been doing the dishes 90% of the time, so this won’t really be a change) …
[Correction: For those who were overly worried (e.g. my husband) I will not be having my big toes removed! Rather, I’ll be having the nails on my big toes excised (removed) .. the toes themselves are perfectly healthy. Now the dishes, that relates more to the finger nails growing back properly rather than the toe nails, as I shan’t be doing the dishes with my feet! … perhaps I should not be writing blog posts when I’m tired]
