The Daily Word Prompt: Gory
This post contains a photo that could make some people squeamish. The title photo is to make you feel good
In February last year, I was helping my bestie clear out some small trees from her place. The trees, Yellow Bells, had become extremely prolific and were in a dense thicket. The trees were only saplings at this stage so it was a relatively easy job with the chainsaw. I was going through methodically, cutting and keeping the area free of the fallen saplings. At one stage I was moving back to see where to cut next. I felt what I thought was a scratch on my legs from some of the branches. What is was actually was my leg meeting the chainsaw which hadn’t quite stopped. There wasn’t any blood running down my leg as the hot metal of the chain, I think, cauterised the wound. There wasn’t any pain either surprisingly. I think my bestie was in more distress than I was. A trip to the hospital and a few stitches later I was good as new. No I didn’t get back to work.
OK now are the following photos. The one showing the cut. Yes I did take a “selfie” while I was waiting for my bestie to get a bit cleaner and a change of clothes. One showing the bandaged wound and what my leg looks like now.
I thought I should show what it looks like now and just took this photo
