This could very well curtail my gardening for a few days.


I'm not sure, but I think I may have broken my baby toe. I was walking to my bed in the dark last night, and somehow forgot that the camelback trunk at the foot of my bed was there. The corners are metal and I smashed my baby toe into it. I have a high pain tolerance, but I could not stay asleep because of the pain. It is the same toe I broke when I was a teenager, nigh on 45 years ago. Hurts like Bejezus. 


Here is a picture of it...what do you think? Broken?


This is the corner I smashed my toe on!!

Update: It's after eight pm and the pain isn't as bad now that I've been wearing my slippers for a while.  The pain seems to be subsiding a bit. Still hurts, but not as bad. I may very well take these battered old slippers to the store tomorrow.

Please ignore my hideous little toenail. That isn't pretty!!

Oh Erin...lol...now I'm not a Radiologist. Nor am I a technician in the field...but even I can see how not the right way that toe is sitting...if not broken then not articulating correctly any longer...taping it to the one beside might give it some more support...think tomato plants in a cone. :)

I think I'm going to go right now and see if I still have some of the surgical tape stuff. I'll do just that Dr. Major. How much do I owe you?

Actually, is it just me, or does that toe look like a grotesque little turnip?

Your toe looks like it is turned sideways and if so..then get an xray!! You still have years of walking ahead of you and you don't want trouble down the road. Take care of your feet now....turnip toes or not )))

Ouch! That looks sore! I seem to regularly break or sprain my toes but I've never had one twist sideways. Take care. An ice pack helps.
