Ouch!!!

I was getting a head of lettuce out of the fridge and a can of soda fell on my 2 toes . Now I can't walk ! Bad enough my left heel has been hurting and now my toes on my right foot . Not a good day! Not sure if it is broken or not, can't bend the toes.

Me thinks that if it was broken, you would be calling for help instead of posting on the interwebz.

Mojo sent..

I am not so sure of that bowlingshirt. I have broken many a toe and I do not think it is out of the realm of possibility that she could have broken one or more from a soda can falling on them and then be posting on the internet.

LC, I hope they are not broken and feeling better soon. I know how painful that can be.

thanks GB. I have some ice on it . If it still is swollen , I guess I will have to go to the emergency room, tho I don't know what they can do. I hate to go because we don't have health insurance and I hate the long wait in the waiting room.

If it were me I would not bother going to the ER. There is really nothing they can do other than tape them up which is something you can do yourself. Of course that is for a hairline fracture. If the bone is out of place then they would need to reset it, but you can usually tell if that is the case.

I guess I will wait and see how it is tomorrow. The toes don't look like it is out of place, just fatter from being swollen.

Waiting a day or two will not hurt anything. Just try to stay off it as much as possible in the meantime. Hopefully by tomorrow they will be feeling better.

I plan to stay off my feet, just told hubby I don't think I will be cooking , he can grill burgers or hot dogs for himself and his friend.

Exactly. Give it a tug, tape it if you feel like and don't bend it when you walk. It wouldn't hurt to keep it elevated either, while you are watching TV and drinking that soda
