    One of my girls broke a toenail and it is now missing. My daughter just found her outside laying down in the snow. She seems happy but her foot is a bit swollen. What's the best remedy?

    This is a fairly common injury, and it's painful. You can soak the foot in warm epsom salts to cean it and it will help soothe it. Put some Neosporin ointment on it. Don't be surprised if the toenail never grows back--I have one like that.
