Yikes….

IMG01112-20130122-1439

This morning Y’s brother told us that Y had been in a motorbike accident and that his foot was “broken”.  I went to his place to check it out.  The foot is not broken, but it scraped the ground bad enough to require stitches.  He also got stitches by his eye.  One day later his foot bandage was completely soaked through with blood.  I figured it was beyond my capabilities so I asked one of the expat nurses, a wound specialist, if she would be able to help.  She said it was a good thing I asked for her help…  It was a nasty mess.  She cleaned it up but is concerned about some necrosis.  So we will see her tomorrow again.  Pray that Y’s foot will heal and he won’t have to experience amputation!

    Yikes…is an understatement! Whoah! Good thing you’ve got a friend who’s a wound specialist no less — like ‘they’ often say, it’s not what you know but who you know. We hope and pray this all turns out okay for the man.
