That’s how many plasters (I think the Americans say band-aid?) I needed today to patch up a little cut on my thumb.
As you may or may not know… since I had a heart attack, I have to take pills that thin the blood (something similar to Aspirin), that means, every little cut bleeds more and longer than it would normally do if you didn’t take these kind of pills.
And man did it ever bleed! Such a small cut… so much blood. I spared you the photo-details and decided to go with a photo of still sealed plaster instead. You’re welcome.
I even googled if there’s a way to stop such kind of bleeding. There isn’t. For the most part, if it’s small cuts, it’s not really harmful or dangerous if a wound bleeds more and longer than normal. Just be patient, it will stop in the end. It would only have to be checked by a doc, if the cut was bigger/deeper.
All the plasters didn’t help and I had to press a paper towel on the would for quite a long time before it stopped eventually.
I lived to tell the tale, I’m doing well, all is good 🙂
