It was very stressful for the whole family, including 'The Girl'. We have done all the right things. Applied pressure to the 'wound'. Kept the patient calm. We have kept the limb on ice and are now waiting for the ambulance to arrive. We are hoping for a microsurgery miracle. Lucky we know Eve the emergency nurse at Launnie Hospital ... with her crafting skills should have him patched up in no time. You know, you just feel so guilty, so responsible, especially when they have come all the way from Sri Lanka from this particularly special place here. Will keep you posted on his treatment and recovery.
