Last night I was in bed reading and there was a hang nail on my big toe that started to bother me. I thought it was a hang nail. Anyway, whatever it was, I ripped it off. I was rather shocked at how much skin came off. It looked a little nasty. OK... a lot nasty. I've hydrogen peroxided it and put on some Bacitracin. Sorry about this nasty photo.
I went to see the optometrist today for a follow-up check up on my eye. She says she can see the scar tissue on the cornea and that it looks pretty healed. I have to keep using the special eye gel thing at night to keep the healing tissue from scraping off. So it's doing OK.
So now it's my toe. Art says if he didn't know better he'd think I was into self-mutilation. Then again, it may just be dumb and dumber things that I seem to be doing lately.
Art says he hopes these accidents don't come in threes.
POSTSCRIPT: I took DrumMajor's advice about soaking my toe in Epsom Salts. I'd forgotten that remedy. I had the salts available since Art has needed it for his mangled finger (shudder) during the house renovation and from his marathon running. After two soaks last night, my toe is not as swollen or red and is feeling a bit better.
This is why I love blogging so much!!!
