Big Toe Troubles


I got a call from the secretary at KHS today.

She informed me Z2 was in the office, because she had ripped the toenail off her big toe.

Ouch!!!

I arrived to find Z2 in the office, cleaning the blood off her toe.

The toenail hadn't ripped all the way off...just from the sides.

Mr. G came in to look at it, and told her to go home and clean it good, put some hydrogen pyroxide on it, and some anti-bacterial ointment. Then wrap it up.

We came home, and got it cleaned up.

She went back to school, and survived the rest of the day. But she told her coaches she probably wouldn't be running today.

When I arrived home after Kiki Aru's track meet in Silverton, her foot was throbbing.

It will probably hurt a bit more tomorrow.

Of my three daughters, Z2 seems to be the one who weird things happen.

Maybe it is a family thing. Z2 is the middle child in our family. Inland Empire Girl was the middle child or we three siblings, and it seemed like she always had things happen to her.

Well, we'll see how the toenail saga continues. Hopefully she can get some running shoes on in the next few days and train for her district meet coming up at the end of next week.

But Z2 is a trooper. She is pretty tough, so I think it will be okay.

Hasn't she had toe problems before? Ouch! Tell her to stay away from the beaters from the mixer and any door with squared of glass. I am having problems with my big toes right now also... weird. Mine are callouses.

No one told her to put the one sure cure all into practice: soak it in epsom salt.

IEG--Yes, it seems to always be something with her feet.

RP--Actually Mr. Grigg did tell her to do that..maybe tonight.

Oh I just cringe at the thought. That is so painful. Hope her toe is feeling better very soon.

I feel for her - I am in the same boat- same day. I can't believe I did the same thing to my big toe on my left foot yesterday...toenail did not come off but I am sure it will..its ripped away from the sides.= and very sore. Guess thats what i get for not picking up my feet when I walk.
