Through the Cambodian interpreter, retired patient tells me how he got a laceration on top of his thumb while using a handsaw four days previously. He was able to stop the bleeding, but now it was so infected he had to come in. After a prescription for some antibiotics and some instructions to elevate and use warm compresses, he was on his way. Although, I had to say that just because it is called a handsaw, does not mean you saw your hand. Lame, but least I got a small laugh from the interpreter and patient.

Haha! Well at least it wasn't any more serious than that!

I wanted to let you know that I am no longer going to be writing at my old blog "this life pursued" but I have started a new blog: www.nursingschoolsnapshots.blogspot.com

Have a good day!
