Broken Toe

I broke my ring (do you call it that on your feet?) toe Friday night as I was walking barefoot down our hardwood stairs. I seemed to miss the final step. It is gross and sausagey, purple like a blueberry and annoyingly painful.

Did you know that you can basically do nothing for a toe break, especially one as trivial as your ring toe?

I guess I will just hobble through the pain.

Ouch. You can't do much for the break, but you can keep it iced and alternate Tylenol and Ibuprofen constantly to keep the pain down. Also keep it elevated to relieve any swelling.

Hope it feels better soon!

Ouch, that sounds pretty painful. Good luck trying to stay off your feet for awhile (:

Laura said...

That does not sound fun at all!!
Hope things heal quickly!!

The Duo is still talking about
Av-linn and Skar-litt a lot.

Now that I can confidently drive there... hopefully we can do that again soon.

Emily said...

Ouch!! Hope it feels better in the next few days. Can't wait to see you guys.

Sorry to hear of your troubles. I dropped in from Blog Advance. Hope your toe heals quickly.
