365/65 - Me and my big toe

Went to the oh so kind podiatrist this morning for an ingrown toenail. Little did I know what we would decide to do. To make a permanent correction, we decided to numb the toe (pretty painless procedure), then cut out the right side of the nail, apply a chemical that would kill the root so the nail would grow out flat instead of curving into the side of the nail bed. I took the photo before he started with the needle.
I could have taken a picture of the nail after the procedure but before the bandage but I couldn't get close enough with my little camera. So here I am with a big toe bandage.
I'm still going to be able to travel to Los Gatos on Sunday for a 2-day workshop with DJ Pettitt.
