My Dead foot

Post scripted Wednesday November 23.
Last Wednesday, I arrived home at 4 A.M. and went staight to bed. At about 8:30 my cellphone rang. Hopeing it was Jennifer I reached for the phone, not realizing in my stupor that it wasn't her ringtone. I had been sleeping wierd on my legs so they were asleep and as I reached for the phone... I fell off my bed. It wouldn't be that bad but the fact that my left foot came down the side of my bed and hit the frame. Once again it wouldn't be that bad but my pinkie toe caught the frame. Wanting to curse out the person on the phone once I realized it was not Jenn since they didn't answer after my third "Hello?!" I hung up. I crawled back in to bed and when I woke up I found my little toe at about a 45 degree angle to the rest of my toes and dark purple. For the next 4 days my foot continued to darken and swell all the way to my ankle and all the toes cept the big toe turned dark and nasty. My toe is still tender and since I am walking funny, my ankle is beginning to tweak and hurt. The people that called me and made me fall off my bed called back Friday morning. They were looking for Angela and were the same people that I told that she was out of the country a week earlier. Mom called them back later and figured everything out. I still wanted to curse them out when they called Friday morning but I didn't. I just hope my foot gets back to normal soon. A good note on my incident is that plasma went really fast today due to all the ibeuprophen I took over the weekend. So my $70 day went quickly.
