I wounded myself with a vegetable peeler yesteday morning. I was trying to peel a big round pear when I lost control of the peeler and sliced off part of the tip of the little finger on my left hand. There was a lot of blood. When it hadn't stopped bleeding after 20 minutes or so, I told Walt I thought it would be a good idea for him to take me to the pharmacy. Maybe somebody there could stop the bleeding and bandage the wound.
And that's what we did. There's no emergency room at the hospital in Saint-Aignan. Mr Martineau, the owner of the pharmacy and a former mayor of Saint-Aignan, got the bleeding stopped after a few minutes, and with the assistance of one of his employees applied an effective bandage. There was no charge for the service. I've been a customer there for nearly 20 years now.
I have managed to type this post, but it hasn't been easy. I may have to curtail my blogging for a few days. This morning I'll need to change the bandage. Walt will help me. Wish us luck.
