Hey! I’m blogging from my phone, so try to bear with me 😉
Vacation Bible School ended on Friday night and I was sad to see it end. I really had a blast hanging out at church all week and being an “actress.”
On Tuesday I went to the podiatrist and had an ingrown toenail removed. If you dislike blood and gross pictures, click off of my blog now…
Right when I got to the office, the secretary wanted my mom to sign me in because she literally thought I was 12 years old… Like she didn’t believe me at all that I am 20! Anyways…
The doctor gave me two really painful shots in my toe/foot to numb it. He then ripped out the ingrown toenail and cut off 1/3 of my toenail.
The most painful part of the actual procedure was getting the shots. My foot is still bruised! The other terrible part of the removal was the recovery. Once the numbness wore off it hurt pretty badly. My toe continued to bleed and it was tough for me to walk.
I was able to take the cast off the next day and soak my toe in an iodine-type solution to clean it. I was so afraid my pets or family was going to step on my toe! It took me about two days to be able to get my foot into a shoe without extreme pain. The worst thing was trying to sleep. My toe would pulsate with pain in the night and I would wake up crying. It was just a rough couple of days!
I was especially nervous to take my healing toe on vacation with me. I’m currently in North Carolina with my immediate family, boyfriend, neighbor, brother’s fiancé, grandparents, and uncle. I didn’t know if sand would get caught in my toe or if salt water would hurt, but I’m happy to report that I’m doing alright and even back to a little bit of running! Woo!
Well, that’s all I’ve got… Just wanted to update a little. Today I visited a church here, went the the beach, and out to eat. Now I’m headed to the beach with everyone for some night crab-catching muhahah!
Hope you’re having a blessed week 🙂
