Injury Report (Listed as Questionable)
Yesterday at around 6:30pm I was making dinner (some beef burritos that turned out really well, actually). Jaime needed something from the baby’s room, so I stirred the beef, onion, and pepper mix one more time before running upstairs. I trotted out of the kitchen and when I was near the stairs, I fell. I don’t even know what happened. When I went to step with my left foot, my big toe just sort of gave out. I ended up with my left foot way out in front of me, and my big toe was curled up under my foot. I fell to the ground with a big crash. Nothing is swollen, but I’m nearly immobile. Jaime took out the trash/recycles last night and walked the dogs this morning. Last night I couldn’t get to sleep for a long time because my toe was throbbing. I couldn’t even let the top sheet touch my toe.
I can move my toe and nothing is swollen, so I’m not too concerned about it, though I probably should be. When I was about 10, my mom broke her big toe and the doctor didn’t even do anything for her. No cast, no splint, nothing. It hurts quite a bit if I put weight on it, so I’m walking on the outside of my left foot for now. It makes childcare a bit more difficult, but we’ll see what happens.
