I broke my toe.
I did not know I broke my toe until the ER did 7 x-rays.
I did not go in to the ER until this evening, although I broke it last night, because I didn't have time and because it didn't bruise until this morning.
I broke it kicking Oren's dresser. On accident.
I kicked Oren's dresser on accident because I was angrily pushing my carpet cleaner into his room at 9 pm.
I was angrily pushing my carpet cleaner into his room, and therefore not watching where my toe was going, at 9 pm, because I kneeled on a wet spot on his floor.
Oren had peed on the floor.
Oren broke my toe.
As to the seven x-rays... my left pinkie toe touches the floor while standing. My right one does not now. And I have a gorgeous black and blue bruise all the way around the poor toe. Amanda said it was broken and I should have it checked out to make sure it didn't need set or something. I got in there and explained about my toe, which is quite an embarrasing thing to request an x-ray for, and they called in the radiologist. He was at home, and they called him in for a toe. He took 3 views and sent them to the doc.
My little toes are a little odd. They sort of grew sideways. Not all the way sideways, just a little. Just enough to make the bones crooked. The poor doc thought I had banged it really good to get the bones to look that bent in the joints, so he had the radiologist do the same three views on my left foot for comparison. Too funny...
Now, because my toe is a little sideways and the bones are slightly crooked, you have to turn it funny to get a good x-ray for one of the angles. So I had to do another one so they could see the profile of the underside.
That's 7. 7 x-rays. And sure enough, it's broken. When I kicked the dresser, it buckled the joint and knocked a small chip off the back of the bone. The very smallest toe bone where it connects to the next bone. Absolutely nothing they can do, I don't need to tape it, please don't stub my toe again for a while. Have a great night.
What a birthday!
Mom Willford got the camera sent off for me, and I got it Saturday. I have just been unable to find any time at all to post the pictures from our Thanksgiving pinata, and I would post them now except I seem to be having issues uploading pictures. So I will attempt them later.
