First brake!

So last night I went to the banquet hall a few hours early with a team to help set up the place. As I was unstacking the chairs (made from some kind of solid rock/metal) the pile of them tipped over and came crashing down on my left foot. I was knocked to the floor bundled up in pain. Some people rushed over and grabbed me some ice to put on it. I didn't know for sure how bad it was as I was wearing stockings and couldn't get a good look at my foot. But the show had to go on.. so I just tried to continue working as I limped and sat the rest of the night. I felt so bad as I really wanted to help more in getting things ready, I was thinking I had just bruised my toes pretty badly, I was in pain the whole evening but was able to make it through and still made announcements, DJ a bit and take some pictures. The evening turned out beautiful and everyone had a great time. (pictures will come) SO we we got home it was already 2:00 am and I didn't have the strength to go get my foot checked that late at night, so I waited till the morning. But I did notice that my middle toe had turned blue and black... it was so painful. So this morning I went to a walk in clinic to get it checked.... the doctor took one look at it and said " Yep that toe is broken!" I wasn't to surprised as it was so bruised and very painful. But because it's just my toe and not further up on my foot, the doctor just said to wrap it along side my other toes and it will set and be ok in 4 to 6 weeks. I am now referred to by some as "limpy or hop-a-long" Thanks guys hahah! Well it's not bad being that I'm 28 and it's my first broken bone. I'm thankful it wasn't worse!
Here's some ugly pictures to go with this post!

Poor baby, hope you get well soon. Not much you can do with a toe but wait to see it heal, so hope it happens soon love.
