Broken toe and active toddler

February 26, 2009

They don’t really fit, do they?

Last night I had a close encounter with the leg of the bed. I’m sure I would not have managed to hit it so hard even pretending to be a karate brick breaker( if that’s what they’re called).  The result was a painful, swollen left foot that made me scream at every step. So, this morning we went to the doctor to have it checked out. The clinic was somewhere on Sheikh Zayed Road, close to the center and for the first time since being here I managed to see the monster aka Burj Dubai from a close distance. What can I say? It’s big!

Back to the doctor. A very nice middle aged New Zealander who explained me everything( which is something most doctors in Romania don’t do), he even showed me the exact movement of the foot as we walk just to point out why it hurts when I step on it. Well, an X-ray showed I have a small fracture in the bone. The good thing apparently is that it didn’t affect the ligament. Not much treatment though. Panadol for pain and a bandage over the toe. Should heal in 4 to 6 weeks and the pain should go away in a couple.

So what do I do in the meantime with the Little Man around that doesn’t know how to stay still for more than 5 minutes? Call mom! We discussed hubby taking holiday but we’d rather spend the holydays in Uk rather than here so hopefully mom will be here next week able to assist.

    So things solved their own way after all. Hope your mom will give you the time to adjust to your new life in Dubai. And don’t brake a leg next time 🙂

    No good. Take care of yourself and take it easy! At least until your mum comes around to help. 🙂
