Well, I hope everyone is doing good out there. Today, officially back on the Cats Team for the Winter challenge. I am raring to go!!

I worked last night and when I got off work this morning I went to my foot doctor for my appt and had my left big toe's nail taken off for good. It has been giving me a problem for quite a while. That one and the big toe on my right foot-that one will be next in 2 weeks to get done. The two toenails are actually mostly dead and they fall off and then grow back-meanwhile they pull the big toe up and the toes hit the shoe and become swollen and hurt. So, today he first sprayed my toe and foot with a lidocaine spray to deaden the pain for the needles and then he used several needles into the toe to deaden it totally for the surgery. He let it sit for 5 minutes and then he proceeded to take the toe nail off and then he used acid to kill off the root so that It won't grow again. My toe is sprayed with an antibiotic and a cream put on and it is wrapped. Good thing I have wide shoes.

I went home took some tylenol and had a lttle something to eat-protein and then went to bed to get my feet up.

I work tonight and my tylenol will come with me.
I can't have any Ibuprofen due to my Gastric bypass that I have had.

In two weeks the right big toe will be done-by that time the left one should be feeling alot better and less sore.
At least after this is all finished things will be alot better with my toes.
