Default Congratulations to Me

Got my first official broken bone today.

We have trenches at work that are normally covered by about a 12" wide steel grate, well today someone decided to remove one of said grates and I proceeded to step backwards into the trench. Believe it or not I didnt break my ankle or even hurt it for that matter. I didnt even fall, I stepped back out of the grate, in pain obviously, didnt seem too bad at first, I hobbled over to the conveyor belt and stood there for about 5 minutes, it just kept hurting more and more, so I had to hobble to the breakroom because of course no body was around. after about a 12 minute trip that usually takes about 2 minutes, I was there. had to fill out an accident report and all that. There was a diagram of 2 human figures on the report and I had to circle exactly where I was hurting... so I circled my right foot and my ass... because its a pain in my ass too!

Went to the hospital, did all that crap, 6 x rays later, they found out my 5th metatarcel (sp?) has a hairline fracture, but its not "displaced" so no cast was needed. They put me in some kind of wrap thing until monday when I go to the orthopediast. Wont find out until monday how long Im going to be off work or if surgery will be needed (most likely not)

I have ad my fair share of broken bones.

If I am thinking right even if you break your toe they cant really put a cast on it. I maybe thinking of something else.
