A silly thing to happen, but big consequences (warning graphic foto)
I broke my second toe on my right foot. I wish you could see the xray. It is terrible. It was a little over week ago I was walking down our hallway in the dark in the morning. I tripped on a wooden legged footstool that was misplaced in the hall. I knew right away that I had broken it. It was jagged out to the side and didn't feel like any jam I'd ever had (I am a former basketball player and I've had plenty!). I went to my bed and told my husband that I broke my toe. We turned on the light and looked at it. It was hanging out to the toe side. I straightened it up the best I could.
Since this picture, it got more purple, then all the middle toes were purple, now it is almost back to normal color, but it is still very sore! I had it xrayed at work and the break is nasty with jagged edges. One of my orthopedic colleagues looked at it and told me all I need to do is buddy-tape it. The other people at work insisted that I call him since it still looked displaced. He said it would heal fine :D.
