Ugh, that's not fun. Hope for the best--hairline fractures are pesky.

Not to second guess your Dr. since I am not one but I was an EMT and I worked in a big trauma center. That sounds like very conservative treatment for a hairline fracture of the little toe. We usually just buddy taped the toe to the next toe in a situation like that. You probably will feel better sooner (4 weeks) than later (6 weeks). Then again, you aren't a teen anymore, so...

I broke my toe next to the big toe in Hawaii many years ago (it was dark and I accidentally kicked a raised sidewalk really hard), I didn't bother going to the Dr., I knew what they would say, just buddy taped it for a week and all was good. I drove 1600 miles from PA to TX about 3 weeks later, no trouble at all. I was in my 30s then. We tend to heal less quickly as we age.

My dogs like me, that is important.

http://www.medicinenet.com/broken_toe/page5.htm

Buddy taping


  • If there is a minor or small fracture in a bone of one of the small toes, a doctor may only need to tape the injured toe to the one next to it for support. This treatment is called buddy taping.


Casting

  • A cast is usually not required for a simple toe fracture. A hard-soled, sturdy, and supportive shoe or boot should be worn. A doctor may give the patient a special shoe to wear if the foot or toes are very swollen.
  • A cast (or surgery) may be needed if the big toe is broken, a fracture involves a joint, several small toe fractures occur at once, or if a bone in the foot or leg is broken in addition to the toe.

According to the doc, it's in a bad place (he showed me and I nodded like I knew what he was talking about) in the joint. And he mentioned surgery.

Apply all your magical powers to healing the bone so you don't need surgery.

Today I saw many weird things.

The first was a roofer, up on a steep roof, playing with his cell phone.

Just thought it was a weird place to be paying that much attention to a cell phone.


The second I've mentioned once before, but I still find it really odd...
The DRIVE THRU atm has braille on it. Braille when you are driving a car. It isn't meant to be used by a passenger .

The third was a lady sitting at a table in a restaurant, took out one of those wood back scratchers and started scratching her back.
Really?
She was eating with someone. Why not ask them to scratch her back?

I think there was something else, but I can't remember.

See you tomorrow!

I've seen plenty of Amish people in buggies behind horses in drive thru ATMs, that always struck me as strange

I thought we decided it was probably simpler to just manufacture the same interface for all ATMs no matter their intended purpose, or that it still left the possibility for someone to walk up to it. I'd probably personally back through the drivethru just for the heck of it so a passenger could use the machine.

When I was in PA I saw an Amish guy towing a trailer behind his buggy and on the trailer was an electric mobility scooter. I thought that was strange.

Down and left from the snail, center of the picture.

it's a brown catfish, sitting on wood.

I keep telling her to get something bigger and more interesting... like a swarm of cuttlefish.

(And she keeps telling me to go ahead, I just wish it were so easy)

The fish is pretty much dead-center of the picture. There's a 'v' formed by the leaves of the plant, fish is at the bottom of the v.

Yes, it looks like a bit of wood. With whiskers. And eyes.

When I was about 17, we got a dog and he went everywhere with my dad and I. The back seat was his. When we would go on trips, he'd be running side to side until we hit the highway then he'd zonk out asleep until we got off the highway.

One time, my brother and his wife came along on a trip to the grandparents. Fritz had to ship up front between me and my dad. He sat backwards staring at them for the entire trip.
