Broken toe :-(

I don't know if you can see how swollen the toe and the whole foot is but it is swollen! It's the toe that looks like a small sausage as we say in Sweden prinskorv

Yes, last night I woke up and went to the bathroom. I never turn the light on because then I get wide awake. So I did what I came for and then when I turned to wash my hands, yes still in the dark, I smashed my foot into a chair. 

There is never a chair there normally. It's in the shower but now for some reason someone, H, had put it there. It hurt like h...l and I had to turn the light on. What I saw was the second toe, beside the pinkie toe, in almost 90 degrees angle. I suppose I was still sleepy because I thought I can't have it this way. So I took the toe and bent it back to an upright position and I can tell you it hurt!!!!!

I had trouble sleeping after that because every position I tried in bed hurt in my foot. A little toe can hurt that much?!?  Well, it does. Because I was in horisontal position it didn't swell and no other sign of bruises or anything this morning but when I stood up on the floor it was almost more than I could cope with. So I put on my slippers who are quite firm over that spot. 

Good slippers that gives support to my toe :-)
After shower, hard to do but I managed, and breakfast I drove to work. I have automatic car and it was the "right" foot that was hurt so it was perfectly fine. At work of course I wasn't as movable as usual and before 10AM the foot had swollen quite good and the toe also started to change color til blue and black :-) It's no idea going to hospital because they won't do anything anyway. 

Lucky it wasn't yesterday when I had the Monday lunch at work. I made green asparagus soup with crayfishtail"röra". (It's a mixture I made of crayfishtails, whipped cream, creme fraiche, dill, cayennepepper, salt and blackpepper.) You put some of the röra in the soup and it's delicious. It's crayfishpartytime here in Sweden now so it was quite suitable. To that I baked some nice baguettes and ciabatta bread. For dessert Pecanfudgepie with whipped cream. They liked it. I made soup for 18 people which was lucky because we had extra guests so in all I served 14! 
 I'm afraid I don't have any photos because they are all at work.

I hope you have a good day or night depending on where you are :-)

Take care and be kind to one another!
