12. I go back to see him in two weeks ...

At which point he'll see how things are moving along. I'm worried about the swelling, but my mom thinks it looks better today. As I said, it was infected when I went in, so I also need to keep that in mind. I have health anxiety, so it's easy for my fears to overwhelm my logic.

Anyway. He said that he would try taking just the quarter off for now, and if I resumed having issues, we'd remove the entire nail and (I believe) make it permanent.

As to his performance, he credits the fact that he advances the needle just a bit at a time, injecting a little bit as he goes. That's as opposed to just jamming the needles up there and giving the shot. He also uses this spray called Biofreeze first. Makes it instantly feel like you've had your foot in ice!
