How I’ve missed this! One recommendation while undergoing treatment is to avoid pedicures. Since my immune system is down, there is a greater risk of infection. I can’t recall the last pedicure I had, so it must have been a while. With this chilly weather and the dry skin I have from treatment, my feet have seen better days. After my last round of treatment, I asked when I could get a pedicure again. Just a few weeks after treatment – yay!
I met my friend Cara years ago when she was my peer at work. We became fast friends and one of our favorite girl days has always been heading to the nail spa to enjoy a pedicure (and typically a little shopping too)! Cara and her family have been huge supporters throughout this journey. Her kind heart and listening ear have been priceless during this time.
So when my sweet friend asked if I wanted to join her for a little foot spa treatment, I jumped at the chance! Our tootsies enjoyed a long soak and scrub while we chatted away, catching up on life, work and everything in between. It was a great way to enjoy a Thursday before treatment day (thankfully not an aggressive one anymore!).
Cara and I always tend to lean towards the bolder nail colors, with me choosing a beachy blue (to remind me of my happy place while recovering) and her choosing a bright green (Team Red Phoenix!). What’s your favorite nail color?
