diary of the left big toe day 2

So it has been 2 very long days with my sore toe. I had to soak it last night in Epsom Salt and can I just say OMG!!! The gauze was stuck to my bloody toe and I didn't know what to do. I cried and soaked it for 30 minutes hoping it would come off but it was staying put. I was in serious pain and Jackson came in and said "you always tell me just to rip band aids off fast so just do that" I guess he was thinking I was such a baby and should have thought of that. So I got brave and ripped it off....HOLY #$%@!!! It bleed and bleed and I was seriously screaming. After about 20 minutes the bleeding slowed and I put on a huge glob of neosporin and bandaged it up. I have never been in so much pain. It throbbed all night. At least with having my children I had something sweet and beautiful to take my mind off the pain but this, I have nothing to look forward to.....I may not even grow a new nail...seriously. Ok, I am done complaining...at least for today until I have to change my bandage tonight *LOL*!! I decided against posting any more yucky pictures....

Thank you for your comment. I enjoy reading your recent posts as well. I was wondering if you could post a question on our blog and see if anyone has bought glass castle? I want to look for something more light hearted and exciting. I found a book today titled Body Surfing. I wanted to check it out and see if it would work for us. I figured it is summer...I don't need to recommend a deep book.

hahaha. love the title. But on a more serious note, this is noooo fun! I would be looking for a good therapist right now cuz I am a baby when it comes to pain like that. I would rather deliver a baby. Ganbarre!! which mean hang in there in Japanese.
