Today is or 44th Wedding Anniversary and we've spent this morning at Whitchurch Minor Injuries Unit. Eric trapped the top of his index finger in the heavy metal gate at the marina when the wind caught it a few days ago. He has a very black fingernail and swollen finger tip which was becoming very painful so we decided to pop in the M.I.U at Whitchurch Community Hospital as it's a walk in service.
At the hospital the finger was x rayed and the tip is fractured! They relieved the pressure by piercing the nail with a new fangled gadget (they don't use paper clips anymore!), then bandaged it up and gave him antibiotics. An excellent service and his finger feels more comfortable. He also got telling off for not going sooner!
