Afew days ago, I messed up my toe. It was healing pretty well until this morning. I wake up and hat do I find? He darn thing is swollen, red and painful. Not to mention is has red lines extending down into my foot! It was all very pretty, in the "can we say gangrene" sort of way. Well, of course I made a beeline straight for the doctor. The doctors told me whatnot already knew-i have a nice little infection brewing in my toe.
Now, what is just TOTALLY awesome is that, in the hour and a half I was at the docs and getting my prescription, those lovely red lines of infection managed to scooch all the way from my middle toe TO MY ANKLE! We are talking four or five inches. Of infection in less than two hours. Needless to say, I popped an antibiotic when I got to my parents house (they were watching my kiddos for me). Now my toe is tingling.

I would totally post pics if I knew how on mobile.
