They called me just before my appointment and said
trauma for 10 years. This is my speciality. I know what I'm talking about."
"It shows no break."
"Here it is right here! Your middle toe is broken. Can you see it? It's broken right where the toe
meets the foot. See I told you. I knew from the beginning."
He was happy to be right.
And I was happy it was my toe this time and not my foot.
He said I should heal in 3 weeks.
Okay, so here's what I learned:
To fix broken toes just tape the broken one to the toe next to it.
That's all this Dr needed to do for me.
I wish I had known this a million years ago when I broke my toe as a young kid.
I just limped and hurt for weeks and weeks. Maybe months.
Also I learned this....
Many foot accidents happen in the middle of the night when people get up in the dark.
Even though I ran into the chair in daylight....I had left the chair out a few inches from the night
before. Our brains don't compensate for a few inches, and then our feet pay the price.
The sad part is I missed church last Sunday. It was stake conference and too far to walk in,
and then too much sitting for my fresh break of a foot.
So I stayed home and listened to this great talk my sister had told me about:
(The speaker was captivating, but not her personality. Perhaps she was nervous.
About an accident involving her 4 year old and how it changed their lives.
How life does not always go as we had planned.)
