on my mother's hands. :[

she told me she had scraped some skin off her finger while hanging out the laundry, and had a band-aid on. before going out to her choir session, she asked me for some antiseptic cream as she wanted to change the plaster. i took a bottle of antiseptic alcohol, cotton squares and antiseptic cream to her, when she said she didn't clean the wound earlier. when the plaster came off, i was shocked. it was a deep, gaping wound and a lot of blood. i immediately demanded that we go to the doctor's and she flat refused. i cleaned it as well as i could, applied the cream, and then a fresh plaster. walked back to my room to put everything back while feeling very disturbed. put things down, turned back out and told her again why i think she should go to the doctor's. she dismissed it, changed the subject to her new shoes, aren't-they-pretty, not-to-worry-i'll-be-fine... and off she went.


i'm going to call dad.

Sounds like it needs stitches
Any chance you can get a doctor to come to you? It sounds really serious.

Re: Sounds like it needs stitches
when i first saw the wound, i thought it needed stitches too... but she claims that the bleeding has stopped today and it will be fine. :[

dad wasn't any more effective in getting her to the doc's. i don't know of any who would do a house call for this kind of injury though. it's not a small cut, yet not a big one either. :s i guess we will watch and see.

Re: Sounds like it needs stitches
I think you should ask to see the cut later and not take no for an answer. The last thing you need is an infection.

Have you ever had some random person (ha ha other than me) put in all manner of annoying comments on your blog? It's been occurring at my blog for the past 2 days and it's driving me nuts. This person logs in every 5 minutes or so. He/ she even registered themselves as a blogger so that he/ she could get past the registered users only restriction which I put in this morning. Creepazoid.

haha! yes, indeed! someone known as The Guru has been dishing out advice on love and life to me... kinda funny i think.

(if you're reading this too, hi Guru! i'm afraid my livejournal is of a different context and may not interest you much)

Re: Sounds like it needs stitches
How is your mom? Is her cut better?

I think this Guru person is a complete asshat. He's already admitted as much.

Re: Sounds like it needs stitches
i demanded to see the cut and it does seem better. :) thanks for the concern!
