Broken Or No???

Well I had the first major fall of my entire 31 years last night. Last night we went on a much needed double date with our teammates John Mark and Tara. It was the first time completely kid-less (minus the one in Tara's tummy) in a LONG time and we had a great time. That is... until we went to the car.

I was in some low heels (another reminder of why I only wear flip-flops) and somehow when I went for the door handle I totally missed the curb and went down HARD! One of my legs was sprawled under the car and the other was on the curb and OH YES I was in a dress! I wanted so bad to laugh because I could just only imagine how funny it looked but I was hurting too bad to laugh. Long story short, my left nalga (that's my buttocks in spanish), my left wrist and my toe were hurting bad. I got in the car and didn't look at my toe because I could just feel that it was out of place. Tara and Lee were checking it out and I said "um, Tara is it crooked?" Her face said it all and then the "umm, yeah it's kind of crooked."

So now that my major mode of transportation, my feet are out of order and we STILL can't drive our car the next few days will be interesting. I guess I'll be taking a taxi tomorrow to go see an orthopedic doc.

So I really don't want to go to the doc because it's a PAIN, in every sense so I thought I would take a poll. I don't know if you can see the picture that well but the answer is "NO, my toe does not usually go in that direction."

What's the vote doc or no???

PS the good news about all this is that I'm still under this years deductible so that's a bonus!!!

i'm going to disagree with the popular opinion here. if you go to the dr., and it is broken - what are they going to do for you? put it in a splint? you can do that at home.

First of all, so sorry you hurt yourself. I know you really needed one more thing to deal with right now. Chad looked at the pictures and thinks you should go ahead and go to the doc. He thinks it might be dislocated.

Second, I was so bummed I missed your skype the other day. We were home but I was in the back room and didn't hear it. Ava would LOVE to talk to Sofia. We pray for her every day. And by the way, when I called you back, I had no idea it was so late. I felt terrible when I got off from talking to Lee and realized how late it was Peru time. Hope I didn't wake anyone.

And finally, we love you and miss you guys so much!!! Blessings. Keep us updated on your foot.

yep...go to the doc. In case it's dislocated or needs some kind of attention. It's better to know what you're dealing with.

It looks a little like Spock's "Live long and prosper". It's a classy look. Jonathan
