Yesterday started off badly. Any morning when you wake up with your foot throbbing painfully is not a good morning, and especially when the pain persists through doses of Tylenol and ibuprofen. It hurts putting socks on, it hurt putting shoes on, it hurt a lot to walk on it. This is not the way it was supposed to feel after ten days of antibiotics and foot soaks, though I had been somewhat of a slacker on the soaking. Got an appointment with the family doctor, who changed the antibiotic, informed me that I had what's effectively an abscess in my foot, and told me to call a podiatrist and have the offending toenail removed stat.

So of course I go out to the truck and discover that I'd left my cell phone at work. *sigh*

Dinner consisted of a couple of overpriced Chuckwagon sandwiches at the college's bookstore after I finished hammering out my assessment assignment; this morning I'll be going in to the middle school to do a couple of hours of observations for another assignment and then toddling off to work. Hopefully I can get hold of the podiatrist and get wedged in this week. We'll see.

yew.....good luck! Get it off right away so it doesn't get worse. At the first reading, I thought maybe you had gout.....

Oh, what I wouldn't give to have gout! Then I could just quit eating a bunch of stuff I don't normally eat anyway and the problem would go away. This I'm going to have to deal with until next Thursday morning, which is the first available appointment with the podiatrist. At least the amoxicillin is doing a better job than the Keflex.

Oh yeah. Today was a lot better, and I may actually feel like going out and doing stuff by the time the weekend rolls around.

From your foot...
...to my nose. (In other words, I think I'm coming down with a cold.)

You and Melody both. Came home early last night (having decided to go home and sleep instead of going to class) and found that she too had gone to bed early - with a cold.
