So, for those who have followed by blog, you probably recall me complaining about my toenails. One possible side effect of Taxol chemotherapy is that you can loose your fingernails and toenails. I am thankful to be able to say that it has only affected two of my toenails. The big toe on each foot. They are so painful! I have been dealing with this since the end of January I believe. They are trying to come off, but have decided to take their sweet time doing it. I cannot hardly stand to wear shoes. Thank goodness for warmer weather and flip flops!!!
Anyway….I am getting ready to go to the Podiatrist (foot doctor) and they may be removing the two big toenails today. Now one would think that after everything that I have been through in the last 8 months that this would be nothing for me, right? That’s what my husband says anyway haha. Well, let me tell you. This is my THIRD appointment but the first one that I am actually going to because I chickened out the last two times and called and canceled the appointment in the middle of the night by leaving a message on their voice mail system. I am surprised that they even made a third appointment for me!! I promised Nick and my mom that I would go this time. No chickening out for me. My mom is coming to get me soon to take me. That may be to make sure I actually go! 🙂 Anyway….wish me luck as I go today. This seriously freaks me out. Seriously. I mean it. I am freaked out.
