Taking ATS out for the day going to spoil her and let her spend 10 euros at Action on herself.
The rest of the day relaxing before we are off to work this weekend.

We’ve been at the local hospital for biopsies on my husband’s scalp. It took them 30 minutes to get the big area they cut out to stop bleeding; I’ve been instructed to press hard for at least 20 minutes if it starts bleeding in the coming days. We’re flying back to France this weekend, so I hope it doesn’t start when we’re on the plane, train or either of the taxis we’ll be using.

I’m off to start packing now.

Ouch, commiserations to Mr Gardengirl. Hope you have a good journey over.

I’m meant to doing stuff this weekend helping OH but not sure what I can do with a sprained ankle...supervise I guess :)

Scalps always bleed impressively and effusively but are difficult to staunch because larger defects (and often smaller ones too) can't be sutured. However, after the initial deluge they tend to dry up and stay like that.

Just make sure you have a suitable pressure pad available, avoid NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen etc) and try not to worry too much.

Having been follicle challenged for over 50 years I can vouch for the fact of a scalp bleed drying up quickly, you chaps with hair don't know what its like not to have an early warning system, I tend to wear a hat a lot. :lol:

Thinking going to brico depot on a Saturday is not a good idea when you can't even find a parking space easily. Plenty DIY enthusiasts about today.
