Something freaky happened last night.
I was taking the polish off my toenails and my left second toenail (the one next to the big toe) fell off! Not completely, about 98% It is still kind of stuck on one side. I didn't want to yank it out and make it sore. I just cut it down sideways and will wait for that side to fall out too. Yuck! There is a little nail there, but it is really small.
I had experienced some darkening and lifting of that nail in the middle of my chemotherapy. I think it was after round 3 or 4. I'm probably in for the same thing on my other foot because the same toenail is black.
Thank you, taxotere!
About this blog
I was diagnosed with breast cancer on June 11, 2010. As a result of my treatment, I have lymphedema in my left arm. I draw my strength from the Lord, as well as my family's Scots-Irish heritage. Our Graham's were a tough and scrappy bunch of fighters on the Scottish/English border. They came to America and continued to fight when necessary: in the American Revolution; the Civil War; and my brother is a Captain in the U.S. Army. My ancestors settled this country against all odds. My great-grandmothers on both sides of the family were pioneer women who settled the West. Along with that heritage, and the full armor of God, I am walking the walk and fighting the good fight.
