So yesterday we visited my podiatrist, the awesomely nice Dr. James Jung. Well, unfortunately he was suffering from a cold/flu and was late, but because this is hopefully our last visit, I forgive him. It was just to get the final stamp of approval that everything is A-OK with the follow-up matrixectomy to my big left toe. Aside from some internal scar tissue that I can forsee being a pain in when I wear high heels, I am ok.
But then I told him about my purple toe. He took a look and said that it is a 50/50 shot as to whether or not I lose the nail. I hadn’t really seriously considered it, but yikes! Out of a random kick, I may end up losing the nail. I have never lost one before. I know it isn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but it is ultimately a fascinating subject, so please tell me, have you ever lost a nail? I want the story! Even better, I will give you a cookie if you show me a picture of your nekkid digit! lol
