Having gone outside to shut the boot lid, he was back quickly, clutching his heavily bleeding head. Yep, he had pulled the boot lid down and forgotten to get his head out the way, ouch!
Nurse me kicked into action. A wodge of paper towels were quickly applied, a chair provided as he had gone white, and he was told to sit and apply pressure to the cut, whilst I washed my hands and got ready for action.
After a few minutes, it was checked, still bleeding. New paper towels folded and more pressure whilst I got saline and cleansing pads soaked.
Bleeding slowing down so began to clean, which of couse sets the bleeding off again. Towel applied to catch the mess, more pressure applied. Eventually 3 cleans and pressures later, it had slowed enough for a good look.
A 1” cut looked back at me. Probably needed steristrips but no stitches required and I didn’t have steristrips anyway:(
A double wound dressing pad applied and taped as best I could trying to avoid hair. Paracetamol given, a spoon of honey and a cup of tea plus the final pain au chocolat.
There was me thinking I wouldn’t have anything to write about today!
