This week I have learned what it’s like to wear two different shoes at the same time, and I’m not talking metaphorically. I have actually been wearing two different shoes to work every day this week. Currently, on my left foot is the typical brown dress shoe. And, on the right is a brown moccasin-like slipper. I know what you’re thinking and no, I am not taking part in some sort of silly contest. Truthfully, I have to wear the slipper because (here it comes) my toe is still injured. Those of you who read my blog regularly, or those who are smart enough to look back one post, will understand what I’m talking about. So, yes, my toe is STILL injured; however, it’s not really what I first thought it was. My doctor told me ( and I hate to say this because it makes me feel like I have some sort of hygiene problem) I had an ingrown toenail that caused a really bad infection. The doc had all sorts of choice words and phrases to describe what he saw but let me tell you he was impressed. Anyway, to make a long story, short he cut back the nail to clean out the infection, gave me some meds and told me to soak it every day. It’s going to be a while until it heals completely, and I’ll have to make several more visits to the doc but from what I understand I should be able to enjoy a full and healthy lifestyle again in the near future.
Note: Sorry if you were hoping for more detail about the toe, I just didn’t think it was in the best interest of my readers to fully disclose all the gory details.
Another Note: I have some pretty entertaining stories resulting from my visits with the doctor. Maybe I’ll get around to posting some of them; but until then, just picture having a cranky old man for your doctor.
