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 !)

The remains of Edward may now need packing to make it heal properly. Your dh will not enjoy this I'm afraid

How big hole?

Skiffen Sat 01-Dec-12 15:08:42

I read this thread with mounting excitement, only to be disappointed!! <plans to search dh for any possible sporn later>

BaconAndAvocado Sat 01-Dec-12 15:03:20

Where Edward once lay there is now a sizeable hole! It goes from bad to worse (sorry Ed That Was)

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

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

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

Oh no!! Edwarrrrd come back!!.

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.

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.

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

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

CMOT - dyou want to direct?

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

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

CMOTDibbler Thu 29-Nov-12 19:12:14

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

Ooh... <rubs hands>

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

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....

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

Hmmmn. What comes in a clear glass bottle?

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 21:32:52

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 21:26:24

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.

SecretNutellaFix Wed 28-Nov-12 21:15:57

any update?

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.

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

You lucky, lucky bastards

Where is Edward?

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--.

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.
