Good Grief

It's Sunday morning after church. I'm sitting at my desk reading about every person in cyber space who has ever broken a toe trying to decide if I should take Dominyk to the doctor or just tape the toe and let it heal. The doctor who goes to our church is on call this morning, so I couldn't get any free medical advice. I was longing for the days in Luverne where we had 3 wonderful MDs in our congregation and there was always at least one of them in church....

I have not come to a conclusion as to whether or not it warrants a doctor visit.....

Half the advice I've read points one and the other half points the other way.

Sigh.

What a wonderful way to spend a half hour.... reading about all the gross things that happened to people when they broke their big toe.

Just take him. Better safe than sorry. Do you have medical insurance?

PS. that is also advice coming from someone who called an ambulance for her baby falling out of the bathtub. I *may* be prone to jump the gun on my kids health so keep that in mind ;)

You probably already know this by now, but nothing can be done for a broken toe. Maybe, at the most, wrap it to the toe next to it. My grandmother broke hers once, and the dr just told her to wrap it.
