    I posted about Fabio having potentially broken his 5th toe almost 2 weeks ago.
    He for sure broke it as it is now twisted 180 degrees from the correct position at the point of the break. The nail is now facing up instead of down. The skin looks black at the break.
    It still doesn't appear to bother him.
    I don't think there is anything I can do for it. But curious about potential options. I think it may eventually fall off. Any suggestions? Just leave it be?
    It is the toe on the left foot. He is standing behind Amelia (the tan EE) in this picture.

    Black sounds really bad. Is it possible to get an up close picture?
