Dr. Grandpa

What happens when you drop a full unopened can of soda on your toe? This:

Poor little Alexander did this on Saturday. You may know that about the only way to relieve the pressure is to drill a hole through the nail. Not a fun thing to have to do to a two-year-old.

A doctor friend of ours suggested heating a needle till it was red hot, then poking it through the nail. The heated needle virtually melts the nail and it only takes a second. Again, two-year-olds do not appreciate these efforts. But our mission was accomplished and his toe is much better now.


Sorry for the blurry pics--this was the best I could do holding a crying toddler.
