Well, I'm not going to deny I've felt better. The day started out okay with a bit of posting on KW followed by a few cups of coffee and a bit of breakfast. A bath before heading out with the missis for our daily exercise, but as I was getting out of the bathroom and into the bedroom disaster struck (well not true disaster on a scale of one to ten, but hear me out). My mind was elsewhere and as I went through the door I struck the small toe of my right foot on the corner of the divan bed hard. An audible snap like a pencil breaking and sure enough, my baby toe was sticking out at right angles to its normal position.

An hour later in our local hospital the confirmation of a break and a dislocation was given along with the news that it would need to be repositioned before being strapped up. This would be done with me fully conscious with only gas and air to take my mind off the outrage being perpetrated on my easterly pointing digit! I'm not going to go into the procedure itself - the memory is simply too painful - but suffice to say that having been accomplished I was sent for a confirmatory x-ray to ensure that the break was properly aligned in order to ensure proper healing.

You guessed it - it wasn't. The student nurse who I had agreed could perform the process had not pulled hard enough and the overridden bones were not back in place. So it was back to square one with the exception that this time it was a burly staff nurse who did the job, with the aid of a bit of metal piping to bend my toe around. After a couple of minutes of this I tottered of to the x-ray room again (well, was wheeled in a chair provided for the purpose) following which I was given the okay to leave the hospital.

I'm back at home now and feeling somewhat sorry for myself. My toe is indeed pointing north again, but is far from happy about the mauling it has been given and is letting me know in no uncertain terms! It's going to be a long night ahead of me (or should I say the two of us) and I'm not looking forward to it. If I succumb to the temptation to post some uncharitable missives reflective of my aggrieved state of mind as a palliative during the course of it I'm sure you (as my good and caring Wach buddies) will understand!

Ouch, peter!

I hope you are well and truly on the proper course of recovery now.

Thanks Menolly. Smile

Surprisingly good night all things considered. Managed about five hours of reasonable kip - more than enough for me. Toe is painful this morning, but not terribly so - certainly tolerable. Now to find out how much sympathy TLC I can wring out of it; a bit of pandering and a few cups of tea will probably be about the limit before the (wise to my ways) Mrs P's patience begins to wear thin!

C'est la vie - the boy who cried wolf and all that!

Ouch, sounds like a painful one. Funnily enough, I was just talking the other day about how the boss's wife had broken her little toe by smashing it into a chair at the office, and said conversation occurred because i had just kicked my own toe, and had come close (I thought) to doing the same. Very Happy

The sound was unmistakable Av - like snapping a pencil! I've been amazed at how relatively painless it has been in respect to previous breaks I've had (though last night it was a bit troublesome) but it still looks a bit misshapen to me. I've got a fracture clinic appointment on Friday, and I hope they're not going to want to mess around with it anymore. Fingers crossed!

Damn, clearly still quiet huh?

Been busy, also back into Kenshi. Also not much motivated at the moment, an issue that clearly isn't going anywhere. Very Happy

Sorry that I have not been around much lately. Oh, Peter, that is an amazing story about your toe, and as it was over a month ago, I hope all is well with it. But it is a comically horrible cringe-fest of a story. I have a bit of a story about fluid removed from my stomach that is nowhere as nasty as a broken little toe that I guess I will post in my own grump-ass thread Smile.
