connected to the foot bone

23 March 2009

A few days ago, while barefoot in my apartment, I stumbled a bit, and came down wrong on the largest toe of my left foot, basically stubbing it on the floor, with most of my mass coming down behind it. It swelled and bruised darkly. Since then, its swelling and bruising has abated, but the bruising has been moving back, following the underlying skeleton, now to the first cuniform. If the earlier bruising and swelling hadn't been visibly diminishing, I would have responded to this backward movement of bruising by limping to one of the nearby emergency rooms. As it is, I look at it as a painful curiosity.
