Toenails.

So I have a ingrown toenails. Which leads to a lot of pain. Yesterday my grandmother called and said at 1:30 she was going to pick me up and take me to an appointment. My grandmother and I thought this was just an appointment for the Doctor to look at my toes. But he ended up cutting out the ingrown toenail. Witch happens to be on both of my toes, on both sides. He froze my toes and that HURT! Then he gave me a numbing shot in my toes. Of course I couldn't see anything because I was leaned back. After that I went to my grandmas to recover, and spend the night. In about 2 months we will go back to the Doctor and he will kill the root. But he couldn't yesterday because to much work on infected toes will make them even more infected. Buy my toes feel a lot better. Tomorrow we will go to the library and then to choir. So lots of fun this week.

Ug!!! OUCH!! I've had an ingrown toenail before, or one that was on its why to being ingrown, but luckily I caught it in time. :)

I had surgery for that two different times, when I was in high school. The first one didn't work and they grew back so they had to do it over again (for free this time.) Then I never had another ingrown nail again. They probably told you this already, but don't cut your nails too short. That can make things worse.

I had to have both big toes cut on when I was about your age but then they made me lay on the sofa for a week. I wasn't suppose to walk for a week but I don't remember why.
