What they sell: Band-Aids
Date: January 18, 2008
Good day, my name is Zealous Goder and I have a general question.
Hypothetically speaking, if someone was putting in a new hot tub in their home, and accidentally slipped and skinned a radial arm saw (turned off) with their left arm causing a 6 inch gash, would this require a doctor's attention or would a band-aid just be fine?
The cut is maybe .5 inch deep and is a greenish color. The area around my arm is swollen and my wrist up until my armpit is a tint of blue. I originally put a 10oz porterhouse on the wound, because I heard that helps to reduce swelling, but I think the meat was old or rotten, because I have been experiencing weakness at my joints and bow legs which are the early tell tale signs of Ricketts.
I have also been falling in and out of consciousness at random times during the day, actually twice while typing this e-mail. Should I just continue the treatment of Band-Aids, 10oz Porterhouses and vinegar or should I consult a medical professional.
I would appreciate a response within the hour, because I am really losing a lot of blood.
