Pink Gloves Are Pretty. Chemo Fingernails Are Not.

Oh Irony you horrible friend of ours! You certainly don’t make yourself scarce while our bodies are being ravaged by chemicals and radiation meant to heal us.
Would that our swollen, painful feet and legs love a pedicure! Don’t we deserve a treat after weeks of insomnia, undying heartburn and join pain?
But wait–no manis or pedis during Chemo. Our immune system is wiped and any tiny knick or germ could make us even sicker–so sick we’d have to skip a chemo round.
Besides, we’re lucky if we have nails left to look at. Or slip into Pretty Pink Playtex Living Gloves.
