Monday night after getting off TT and laying down on the couch, I went to sleep. The wife leaves me asleep, cuts off the light and TV and goes to bed.
I wake up about 12:30am , get up and in a sleep daze, dumb me tripped in the dark and about fell and slammed my left foot [toes] into the big table in front of our sectional sofa.
Yesterday I noticed my last 3 toes and my foot behind them were blue, my foot was swollen and there was a big blood blister on my next to last toe.
Went to the Doctor this morning and he sent me for X-Rays and........................I HAVE 2 BROKEN TOES!
The blister is called an Break Blister, normally happens on broken toes. He burst the blister, applies an anticeptic and bandaged the toes up. Fortunately I have no pain, because of Peripheral Neurothapy [numbness in the extremeties] in my toes due to Chemotherapy from Colon Cancer and Type 2 Diabetes. The nurse said if my toes weren't numb I would be in some serious pain. I guess I'll mow the lawn tomorrow and NO I did not hurt the table, just my pride!

Sorry to hear about it...Peripheral Neurothapy can be pretty dangerous...you can really hurt yourself and not know...A buddy of mine in college had the same. He used a torch to cut a ball-and-chain from his foot that I put on with a padlock. He didn't feel anything until he started smelling "something" burning :eek:

NO, for the good of the world!
Doctor said wear a sock to help soap up moisture, so I got some short tennis shoe socks. I'm redneck enough, besides I don't have a t-shirt with the sleeves cut off to complete the outfit.

He was gettin' married, so we chained a 12 lb roller to his ankle with a short chain so he had to hunch over to carry the ball when he walked. They chained it to MY ankle the year before...just paying it forward 8p

Thanks everyone for the condolences, but I have no pain, the bruising is starting to go away and except for having to look at it, it is OK. Just weedeated, mowed, raked, cleaned everything up, but can't get it wet and infected. Diabetics have trouble healing and foot injuries can easily lead to infections, gang green and amputation. I don't want a peg leg, then UMP would appoint me as Chief Pirate, make me wear a eye patch and I'd have to put a hook on my right hand, Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrg!
