after the doctor's visit, it is no longer swollen. my worst fear was a broken toe bone that could take weeks to heal. but no broken bone! he drilled a small hole through the nail and the excess (from broken capillaries) blood came out. the only thing that remains is the dried external blood. i will be okay and can play basketball as soon as the hole completely heals, which is a few days. praise the Lort!
