    Source: Biden fractures foot while playing with dog, to wear a boot


    President-elect Joe Biden fractured his right foot while playing with one of his dogs, an injury discovered in a scan Sunday and that will likely require him to wear a boot for several weeks, his doctor said.

    Biden suffered the injury on Saturday and visited an orthopedist in Newark, Delaware, on Sunday afternoon, his office said.

    “Initial x-rays did not show any obvious fracture,” but medical staff ordered a more detailed CT scan, his doctor, Kevin O’Connor, said in a statement. The subsequent scan found tiny fractures of two small bones in the middle of his right foot, O’Connor said.

    “It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks,” O’Connor said.

    Fractures are a concern generally as people age, but Biden’s appears to be a relatively mild one based on his doctor’s statement and the planned treatment. At 78 he will be the oldest president when he’s inaugurated in January; he often dismissed questions about his age during the campaign.

    Reporters covering the president-elect were not afforded the opportunity to see Biden enter the doctor’s office Sunday, despite multiple requests. Leaving the doctor’s office to head to an imaging center for his CT scan, Biden was visibly limping, though he walked without a crutch or other aid.

    Biden sustained the injury playing with Major, one of the Bidens’ two dogs. They adopted Major in 2018, and acquired their first dog, Champ, after the 2008 election. The Bidens have said they’ll be bringing their dogs to the White House and also plan to get a cat.

        Never had a broken bone that didn't.
        • neck
        • collar bone
        • shoulder (actually separation)
        • 2 ribs in 2 places
        • wrist (supposedly a permanent break but quite literally healed over night after a decade)
        • leg (hurt the worst)
        • numerous fingers and toes


        All at different times, and none of them give me any trouble. Where I have arthritis is where I've never been hurt.

                And OMB was rushed to Walter Reed which has never been explained. Though it would be impossible for Biden to hide this since he has to wear a boot for a few weeks.

                  It's good that the docs ordered further testing. MelMak was in a car accident a few years ago and the airbag didn't deploy. His chest hit the steering wheel. The emerg doc did xrays but saw nothing. It wasn't until a few days later that he saw our family doc, who ordered a CT, which, surprisingly, took place fairly quickly, for Canada. MM had a fractured sternum that didn't show on the xray. Some stuff needs further action.

                  I hope Biden's foot heals well.
