It's very red with a dry head. Best way to get rid if it?

He couldn't get a doc's appointment today.

(Sorry for yuckiness !)

Oh NO--- Beryl BURST. That 20 min silence was me doing battle with loo roll with legs round my neck. She must have been camera shy.

Right, what came out. A lot of some wet stuff, then a lot of blood with little white flecks in it.

Do I just leave her to it? You could fit a fag in the hole. (I won't give her one, even tho she is post-explosive & prob craving one).

Corygal Tue 27-Nov-12 21:16:47

Do I need to have a bath in dettol? Tights to the bin? What else...she hurts all the way up to my hip.

CMOTDibbler Tue 27-Nov-12 21:30:07

Put a good handfull of salt in the bath, and some tea tree oil if you have some, and have a soak - that should draw any remaining yuck out. Then put a dressing on Beryl to protect her

thepathan I haven't laughed so much in ages! grin

corygal many congrats on demise of Beryl. Edward sends his condolences.

New years resolution will be to learn how to put photos on t'interweb, I'm so sorry for my crapness. Would love to share Edward in all his swollen, grey glory.

Corygal Tue 27-Nov-12 21:36:22

Thank you CMOREBeryl! I feel miles better with the loving arms of MN, or at any rate your gloriously comforting sense, around me. Will do.

Bacon - good luck with Edward, hope he gets to a better world soon.

ThePathanKhansWitch Tue 27-Nov-12 21:46:21

Can you let us know what Edward is made of, if you're there at the end.
It really is the least you can do. We need to sound effects, and the colours of Edwards inards.--yes i am that depraved--.

MacaroniAndWalnut Tue 27-Nov-12 21:49:27

You lucky, lucky bastards

Where is Edward?

BaconAndAvocado Tue 27-Nov-12 22:27:42

Me and DH are laughing so much that Edward may very well be on his way to a better world soon, through guffaw induced bursting (here's hoping!)

If Edward does meet his maker (DH?) in an explosive way, I promise to post all the revolting (sorry Ed) details as soon as I can.

any update?

Corygal Wed 28-Nov-12 21:26:24

Aieee - Beryl (RIP) has a twin! I have just found her. Same size, popped up overnight. Next to Beryl.

Any advice? I can't take a picture of either little miracle. Unless I use a Box Brownie, geddit.

I heard the faintest call of the Klaxon! smile

I'd LOVE to do the milk bottle trick. One day..... <whimsical>

Corygal Wed 28-Nov-12 21:39:47

I might try it on the new boil. Oh woe. Why are all my milk bottles plastic? Blast and drat modern life.

Nagoo Wed 28-Nov-12 21:55:11

Hmmmn. What comes in a clear glass bottle?

Corygal Wed 28-Nov-12 21:58:42

nagoo - I might try the olive oil bottle. Am limping round kitchen looking for bottles with diameters large enough.

Will report back tomorrow. Sleep well! And thanks....

BaconAndAvocado Thu 29-Nov-12 18:06:24

Hi all, Edward was much reduced this morning, waiting for him (and DH) to get in for an update.....

Jacksmania Thu 29-Nov-12 18:08:33

I'm watching Rolfs Animal Clinic atm, and they've just drained a 20 litre abcess on a bull. Rivers of pus !

Corygal Thu 29-Nov-12 19:42:51

Oooh I might email Rolf and ask him to come round for Beryl II...

Corygal Thu 29-Nov-12 19:43:30

CMOT - dyou want to direct?

CMOTDibbler Thu 29-Nov-12 19:49:24

I'll be round with the camera grin. Although after the trauma of DHs boil a few months ago, I'm not sure if I'm ready

BaconAndAvocado Thu 29-Nov-12 20:43:06

I've got some sad, sad news.

Edward is no more. In the end the anti-biotics got the better of him.

He will be sorely (ouch!) missed by everybody who knew, to knew of him.

Edward is dead, Long Live Beryl II.

Corygal Thu 29-Nov-12 21:21:54


Well done Bacon. Cmot - Beryl II will wait for your talents, the way De Niro does for Scorsese. In your own time.

ThePathanKhansWitch Fri 30-Nov-12 20:30:58

Oh no!! Edwarrrrd come back!!.

Corygal Fri 30-Nov-12 21:46:59

No! How! Is it time for antibiotics? What he doing?
