Broken Toe

OK, this isn't going to be pretty. I need a pedicure in a bad way but I just had to show you what happened to my toe today! I purchased some wine as a gift for a friend for Christmas and I dropped the bottle on the first joint of my big toe! I did not break the bottle but I think I broke my toe. Luckily for me, I have a friend who is a physician and when I realized that the pain was only getting worse, he called me in a prescription this evening! These photos were made early this evening, the accident occurred around 2:00, as of now, my foot is starting to turn blue right around the big toe. Stay tuned, I may post updated photos. After all of Jim's photos of food, I thought maybe I should journal my medical condition! LOL

On the bright side, my Christmas shopping is completed!

I was in a hotel room one night with my Mom and my son. It was REALLY dark! I got up in the middle of the night to go potty and I ended up breaking my pinky toe. The next morning I showed my Mom my foot and it was swollen and all black and blue! She said how did you do that without screaming and waking me up... I'm nothing if not curious (I bit my lip and went to the bathroom and cursed in my mind)!! LOL

The reason I tell you this story is that I FEEL your pain! Broken toes SUCK! At least you've got some cool pain meds, I just had to grin and bear it! =)

I hope your toe feels better soon!!! *hugs*

Damn VN8 I would have smashed the bottle of wine after that lick! Wow, I sure hope it's not broken. Feel better soon.

*OW* man that looks sooooo painful. I remeber my mom breaking her little toe several times. She got to where she would set and stuff herself. No need for doctors here. lol

Feel better soon!
