I cut open my pinky toe today.

There's a rather large piece of skin that i can "open" and "close" lol. i didnt even realize it until i noticed blood spots on my kitchen floor.
anyways, ... now that i've noticed it and got it wraped up in a bandaid it hurts when i walk and ocassioinally throbs. But i really wanna take the boys to the fair tomorrow! Kids under 12 are free! ...so should i go and make the best of it? I'm thinking it might not hurt if i pust socks and shoes on. Or should i stay home and baby it?
My boys are 4 1/2 yrs and 3 1/2 yrs. It's been 2 years sense they've been to the fair.

  • That is a tough one if it is a deep gash then I would stay home and baby it bc while on your feet all that time at the fair you will probably be in agony. Since you kids are still little wait til it comes around again by then they will really enjoy themselves and you will be able to attend to them the way that you want with no problem. Like this I believe you will be miserrable. I am sure they will be ok. Heal your little toe and make it up to them take them somewhere else different as well. GL It is your call only you know how bad it is.doctor

  • Ouch! You don't have to decide right now. If it were me, I would see how I felt in the morning, then I would decide. Either way, have a good day tomorrow!
