I still can't really taste anything, but the headcold appears to be receding.
The results of my annual physical from last week indicate that I'm healthy.
But, since nothing's ever perfect, I went to get the bump on my toe checked out today.
It took three shots of novocaine to numb my little toe sufficiently. The first needle hurt, despite the cold stuff the Doc was spraying on my toe to numb the skin. The second needle was more of a pinch, thank goodness. Then he tried to slice and I winced ("you can feel that? Ok, hang on...") so I got another needle, which I didn't feel at all, bless him. He tried again ("you can feel that? Ok, we'll wait a little longer...") and after a few more minutes, he was able to take a slice (to run a pathology) and I felt nothing. Yay. Then he applied my favorite acid and bandaged me up.
For those of you who haven't been following at home, I have a long history with plantar warts, so I take care of weird bumps on my foot reasonably quickly (less than three months after I notice them, which is pretty good for me).
We'll see if it's plantar or something new and different.
Unfortunately, probably due to the novocaine, my left leg is cold on the left side up to the knee. Stupid nervous system.
