DB update

The bleeding eventually worked its way through two absorbent pads so we had to start again. Two folded pads and three cotton wool pads plus a tightly applied bandage stopped the bleeding coming through.

He put a beanie hat over the bandage to go to bed to keep everything in place, a sort of injured compo look (from last of the summer wine programme).

Needless to say he didn’t sleep well and woke up with a stiff neck!

He will need his hair washing for him tomorrow so he can hold the plasters in place. If a success, we shall try and soak them off in a couple of days and hope we don’t start the bleeding again, blooming blood thinners.


  1. Oy,so sorry for his troubles.

  2. My dad has a similar problem for the same reason - they are life savers, blood thinners, but do create some issues.
    Really feel for him - and you.

  3. Oh I didn't realise he was on anti-coagulants - makes it a whole lot worse I would think bleeding wise. Poor bloke!

  4. Ouch. I suspect we have all done that, I know I have. You obviously have supplies well organised.

  5. Hope DB is feeling better soon. Not only does he have to deal with the cut but the headache that comes with it.

  6. Just catching up, yikes. Hope all is well now.
