DD has lost her little toe nail (dropped a bench on it) & now has a very busy weekend - what will she manage?

I'm guessing the 2.5 hrs competitive dancing practice is out

But the 3 large (3ft) flying saucers that need painting is probably OK

Sunday afternoon Guide Choir is a positive - but the 5 hours sponsored sail??? is that doable??

Church play is still under discussion

Why oh why does it happen to her??

Apparently someone stood on it today (It happened on Wednesday) & it is 'supremely painful' - I wonder if it's broken? - not that they would do anything if it was

Poor poppet

& now she has terrible wind............

It's all a bit much for her

God, I wouldn't be 11 again if you paid me

Depends if the toe is very badly bruised or broken. If just the toe nail, I should imagine she'd be able to do everything. If toe issues as well (am guessing this may be the case) possibly not the dancing but everything else sounds fine. You could try lashing it gently to its neighbour with sticky tape to stabilise it and see if that helps with the pain.

If just the toenail, she should be able to do everything. If she's actually broken the toe it's worth getting it checked out; DH didn't and now has a size difference between his feet because his toe didn't set straight.

Poor baby

So casualty is not a silly idea? Damn I was hoping to avoid

Ah well - I thought they just ignored broken little toes

I'll see how she is tomorrow

It's possible they would ignore it, but having seen the fallout of just assuming they'd ignore it and so not doing anything about it, it's worth checking...

I will see how she is tomorrow - if she isn't weight bearing/baring (not sure which one blush) we come

She broke her little toe

They aren't treating it

She might well miss her medal test sad as it could take 2-4 weeks to sort out
