out of curiosity

Does this look broken to you?
The fourth one that's all swollen and purple. Dr. Krog says I'm trying to steal his limpy thunder, but my toe really, really hurts.

Just wondering.

It does look like it could be broken, but I'm no expert. My mom has always advised people to wear sneakers laced up tight if they think they have a broken toe. Apparently, there's no such thing as a toe cast.

Going to the doctor at 11:30, because,

a) vindication
b) splint?
c) funny air-shoe?
d) 15 minutes of reading a book in serene silence of waiting room
e) extreme pain
f) hate tightly-laced sneakers

Oh yeppers. That's broken. The bad part? There's likely nothing your doc can do that you can't do yourself at home. Buddy-tape it to the next toe up, to keep it stable. Wear loose shoes so you don't smash it again. Waitwaitwait. I broke my little toe last summer & the b*tch took 2 months to fully heal. Good times.

In a word, YES. at the least get it checked out, but I really don't need to tell you that.
