Redressed the wound on Alan’s foot

Scrubbed hands, got normal saline, Bactine, a thick towel, and first aid kit.

Propped Alan’s foot on the footstool and unpinned the gauze and started unwrapping it. The little shit gasped as if I hurt him, then grinned at me. I came >.< this lose to stabbing him with the saftey pin for it. He apologised.

Cut the water proof dressing from the top of the bandaging. Unwound the gauze holding the gauze pad in place. Very little blood seepage on the gauze.

Soaked the gauze with saline a few times and removed the pad. It seems my pressing the flap of the ball of his foot back into place, and securing it with bandaging worked great. No redness, swelling, well scabbed over.

Flushed it with saline and Bactine again, and re-dressed it.

And other good news, he didn’t break his toe. It just hurts like hell.
