Actually this is a pin
Look at it real close
Look at it again!
Now imagine this in your foot!
Well....this was what was in my foot. It happened Tuesday afternoon. It was almost an inch long.
I thought I could get it out myself.
I soaked the foot
I used the ointment that is suppose to draw it out.
I walked around on the side of my foot for days.
This is where my stubborness comes in. I just knew I could get it out.
My husband even tried to dig it out. We used a numbing spray.
Finally this old goat gave up and went to the Dr.
Now don't go and say that about me.
Not very nice.
I have to tell you that I just figured it was like a splinter and you know how it festers up and just shoots out. Well...I guess all that soaking kept it from festering.
Needless to say an hour on the table....who knows how many numbing shots later
It finally came out.
My poor husband. The first round of shots to the foot almost had me throwing up, I don't believe I felt that kind of pain in a long time.
The second round of shots had me squeezing my husband's hand and sleeve. Oh my stinking gosh...could it hurt anymore?
Finally after the third round of shots, a scalpel, and the determination of the doctor it came out.
He said he if could not get it out he was going to send me somewhere where
it would be surgically removed...I thought that was what he was doing.
So....I was very grateful the ordeal was over and Life is good.
This barefoot gal is now going to wear shoes in her sewing room....don't ever want to go through that again!!!!!
