Wednesday morning one of my toes was a little red, but it didn’t hurt. I washed it off carefully and forgot about it, until I noticed it later in the day because it was a lot red. So I soaked it in hot water and put some Neosporin on it. Next day it was still red, repeated same and again on Friday.
Then around 4 Friday afternoon my whole foot started feeling funny… no not funny, strange. It didn’t hurt, but if just felt odd, and when I touched it, it was quite hot. And then my leg started feeling strange too. Of course none of this happened when my Doctor’s office was open.. and of course people had been telling me horror stories of toes being infected and what that means and my foot was going to fall off and more… so I made John take me to the ER.
I’m not going to tell you what happened, it was too painful but I’m such a wimp anymore when it comes to pain. I’ll just tell you it involved knives and red stuff… and antibiotics. Sounds real serious but it isn’t, honest. As I said before I’m just a wimp when it comes to pain, I just can’t tolerate it any more.
Of course it’s my right foot and I tried sewing left-footed... can you say klutz?
