As I was getting ready for bed, picking up my mess in the family room, I slammed my foot into the sofa. Stef and Helaine were both asleep upstairs. I tried to hold the volume back on my stream of descriptive cursing.
I finished up and went to bed.
From time-to-time overnight I woke up and tried to bend my toe. I’m not sure how much bending was going on, but it sure hurt… and continues to hurt right now.
Let’s assume my toe’s broken. No sense in worrying. My understanding is, the usual treatment for a broken toe is benign neglect.
Patient: Doc, I think I’ve broken my toe. Is there anything I can do?
