It could be worse

Posted in: Injury Time

Guy opposite me was thwapped in the back of the head by a bus's wing mirror as he was crossing the road. As he went down his foot was caught up in the vehicle's wheel arch. He lost a couple of toes, has had the others pinned, and most of the top of his foot had a massive skin graft. I managed to catch a snap (with permission) between dressings. Warning: it's ugly.

This is the foot four week's on - can't help wondering what state it would be in if he didn't smoke, and ate anything besides sweets and puddings (i.e. had some protein). Bummer.

Ow ow ow ow. Poor dude. Makes me think twice about crossing roads now.

*gone right off my breakfast*

Poor bastard. But if, in a few years time, there's a serial killer preying on bus drivers, I think we'll know who the number one suspect will be...

Perhaps one of the worst bits about being in hospital - it's full of things that make you feel even worse!
