Re[2]: [at-l] The new "Sloetoe" ????/My toe still hurts

     I don't know, KC. Looks to me like you're WELL qualified for 
     Sloetoeness yourself. I suspect that you, me, and Solar Bear are due 
     for a winner-take-all wrestling match.

Great, just Great. I was considering going to the doctor because my toe is 
STILL hurting,,,especially today. Then nail seems to be pulling away from 
the nail bed. Can't decide what I should do about it. It is black and blue 
and I can't even think of hiking. I was thinking maybe the doc could pull it 
off,,,but then again??? Anyone with experience with this sort of thing. I 
think what happened is that I got a blister under my toe nail. I took a hot 
needle (after a few beers) and put a hole in the nail bed. A clear fluid, 
like that from a blister, came rushing out. The swelling went down but it 
turned black and blue and was and is painful to walk on. I cut a hole in my 
boots so that I could at least walk! That happened June 25th and I am still 
in pain. Any suggestions? BTW, I do NOT like to go to the doctor and will do 
just about anything to avoid them. KC
