My Toe


Today was the day…

I went back to the doctor. My toe with its paronychia has actually got worse, so I decided to make an appointment and today I went. I was not given the answer I wanted. I wanted to walk out with an antibiotic. The doctor said it will only get better with an antibiotic, but first he had to lance it.

So that’s what he did. I came out with it looking like this…

On my way home, it was so sore, I had to practice breathing! As soon as I got home, I took the antibiotics and TWO myprodol. It took about 45 minutes for them to work and then I had a peaceful, pain-free afternoon. It’s actually still not sore and the bleeding has stopped.

And, as a result of needing to keep the bandage on, this evening I got to take a bath! It was the first time I have bathed in probably 4 years.

Quiet evening at home now.

Psalm 113:1-3

Praise the Lord. Let the Name of the Lord be praised, both now and forevermore. From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the Name of the Lord is to be praised.

The best is yet to come.

Keep the smile going.

God bless you.

In His Grip,
