Fun and I

Well, not quite, but if you repeat it fast a few times, you’ll get the message.

A little over 2 years ago, I noticed a small nodule on the cuticle of my index finger.
It caused the nail to ‘furrow’ as it grew, but it eventually sorted itself out with no problem at all. Not so this time.

The cuticle looks bruised, and not only do I have a mini canyon developing in the nail, but the growth by the cuticle itself is layered and rippled like the edge of a sea shell.

Hubby had to have a blood test today with the nurse who told me about SW and I went in with him to thank her and let her know how I was doing. She could see a positive change (blush).
As we were leaving, I asked if she thought I needed to see a doctor about my finger, and she said I should to be on the safe side as I was diabetic.

Knowing I was unlikely to be able to see my GP within a month, we drove up to the surgery anyway and I spoke to the receptionist. Explaining I was diabetic and unsure as to whether I had an infection in my finger (diabetics have to look after their feet by the way), she booked me in there and then to see the nurse on duty.
I was seen in less than five minutes, got a second opinion and a prescription in another two, and was back in the car within 10.

I’m still reeling from the speed of it all.
The nail is growing out OK, but it is infected so I have some cream to rub in twice daily.
Rather than give you images of gross manky nails, have a look at some of the pretty stuff.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
