Medicine 101

Open wounds (even those bandaged up), and public 5-day water fights do not mix well.

And so, when i went to the hospital this evening for my routine changing of dressings, I was told that my toe is re-infected... And that they had to cut me open, and remove the rest of the toenail.

So thats it. The entire nail is gone, my foot is yet again cut open, and there is no way in hell that i'll be able to go to the beach for a few days before I leave Thailand.

I'm essentially stuck in Chiang Mai until a day or two before I leave Thailand.


The Insurance company is quite nice, they're paying for everything - and contacted the hospital yesterday, so that they pick up the bills directly now. In theory, they'll be contacting my hotel soon to do the same...

But yeah, so i'm stuck here... and the doctor has now told me not to walk anywhere I don't absolutely have to. So i'll be hanging out at my hotel a lot for the next week or so.


On the upside - I am hoping to have my internship contract signed by next wednesday, fingers crossed.
