The hazards of heating with wood

Yep, dropped an oak log on my slippered foot Sunday morning whilst stoking the woodstove.  You should've seen the bruise 30 min later!  It was impressive, even by my standards.  Roughly the size of half a racquetball, in both circumference and height.

By day's end, it had diffused over the whole upper foot.  Monday morning, It looks like this.  Nothing broken, but getting my lifting shoes on tonight will be a challenge.


  1. Arnica and/or calendula are wonderful for this type injury. I swear by the stuff!
    RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation - also helps.
    Heal quickly, please.

  2. Oh good grief! Arnica gels are great. But so is ibuprofen to relieve the swelling. I'm glad nothing's broken though, but are you sure you want to put pressure on your feet by lifting? :-0
