the toenail is finally off

...but a new one seems to be growing in its place. Thankfully, the loss of the dead toenail was painless. It died during my long walk a few months ago, but it hung on stubbornly, leaving me to wonder whether it was really dead. Losing toenails is a common occurrence during long-distance walks, so this particular blessed event didn't come as a surprise. While the denuded toe now looks gross, the new, little toenail gives me hope for the future.
