Deep Purple

No, not the band, but my toe.  Not paying attention I somehow managed to smash my toe into the edge of a door last night.  Oddly, it wasn’t one of the usual ones that I smash into things (the big or little toe), but the fourth toe (the one next to the little toe).

At first I thought it might be broken, but upon palpation I could not detect any deformity (sorry, my first responder training kicked in for a second), and the toe retained sensation and circulation.  This doesn’t conclusively rule out a fracture, but I’m moderately certain it’s just a nasty bruise.  And it certainly turned a rather interesting shade of purple. 

Anyhow, I can still hobble around fairly well.  It doesn’t bother me too much unless I’m careless and flex my toes too much.  Time will tell if my diagnosis is correct.  If it doesn’t start clearing up in a day or two I suppose I’ll have to pop over to the local doc-in-a-box for an X-Ray to see what’s really going on with it.
