Mother toe-er

So yesterday I had to go to Physical Therapy. I get there and find out I'm late for my appt (it was a half hour before I thought it was). I am slightly panicked and then I arrive at the parking structure. Now the structure is attached to the building my PT is in through some heavy metal doors. I walk towards the door and BAAMMM!!!! the door is whipped open by some woman and hits me. I'm almost knocked over and feel instant pain in my foot. She apologizes profusely and asks if I'm fine. I say "yes" just to shoo her off. She leaves and I walk inside the building.

I look at my toe.

The nail....is 3/4 unattached. It is bleeding profusely (being on blood thinners doesn't help) and I still have to get to my PT appt! I hobble into an elevator, to the 3rd floor, and inside the PT office. I ask "Ummmm do you have a first aid kit....my toe just got hurt." They were really nice and tried to help me. One woman had to leave because of all the blood.

Then I realize it.

My toe is broken. Yes, bleeding and broken. There's so much pain that it feels like it's on fire. I do only mat work for my PT and then head home. First stopping at Target and hobbling to get first aid supplies.

Now you may wonder what the first thing I thought was when I realized my toe was broken and my nail was hanging on by a piece. I thought "omg, I can't get a pedicure or wear heels this weekend!!!!!" My vanity has no shame. I also will apologize in advance to my travel companion who not only is a good head taller than me, but will be a ton more graceful than me as well. Hey, guess I'll have to gamble more

Here is a picture of the poor toe.

Ouch!! I'm sorry your toe is hurt. I'd try keeping it taped and stuff so you can enjoy your time without having to hobble so much!
