Yesterday, I had a toenail removed at the local hospital (persistent fungus problem, nothing serious but annoying). I thought that it would be a minor operation and that I’d be back at work today, but alas, that was not the case. Turns out I can’t put any pressure on my toe for the next few days and I have to keep my leg elevated, so I’m stuck at home for the rest of the week.
The pain is tolerable – except when I accidentally whack my toe which, considering what a klutz I am, happens more often than I’d want it to. I’m kind of surprised because the nurse said that it would hurt a lot (”it will feel like your heart is in your toe” was what she said).
I’m sitting in front of the TV (hurrah for the Daily Show and Colbert Report), surrounded by gadgets to keep me amused and doing Graphics Interface 2010 stuff. I’ll be reading my email regularly so you can still contact me.
