Dd had a verruca. She's had it a while and we were putting bazuka stuff on it so we didn't have to apply plasters. Dh had over applied it the one day he helped so she had a big circle of dead skin. Dd is making such a fuss whenever I try to file the dried gel away so today I got cross and pulled it.
The big ring came away fine, left a ring of new (tender) skin but the centre of the varruca was raised and looked like that would come away, so I saw an end to the nightly trauma of having to file her toe.
So I pulled.
Looked fine for a second, the verruca had come away. Then the bleeding started. Dh (a medic) thinks it was a small arterial bleed. He managed to stop it and bind it up.
Then he reminds me that dd is in a dancing show and has to dance every day for next 5 days :-( I'm feeling so
Ooops. Well we all make mistakes! How painful is it? Will she be able to dance? I guess not? Maybe some humble pie and a consolation trip to the cinema or somesuch? At least the nightly bazuka trauma is over!!!!!!
Mariemama - he should take some of the blame! given the choice between an ambulance technician and a blind person with one working hand (and not the dominant one!) Who should have been performing the "surgery"
