Carol fractured her toe

The one next to her right pinky toe. It happened this past Sunday, she was walking barefoot next to one of the suit cases we took camping and BAM! She hit her toe on one of the wheels at the bottom of the case.

We were not sure if it was really broken since all injuries on the toes hurt quite a bit. But on Monday morning it was still hurting just as bad and decided to go to the local Urgent care. And yeah, the X-rays confirmed it.

So Carol now has a stylish black sandal on her right foot that does not let her bend her toes when she walks.

I do remember the doctor saying that he knew it was a fracture even before he took the X-rays. He knew because the toe turned purplish, he explained that when the bone breaks, it "bleeds" and makes the injure purple, interesting.
