I have not been able to get up to our place at Mt. Fuji recently. So, today decided to come up for a short visit. I brought a used large "blue heata". Which I found in a recycle shop. Set it up in my very cold workshop and it started to work immediately. Very hot and not much smell either.
Since my shop is a work in progress it is dark. I bought some small LED lights that I wanted to set up. Looked for my box cutter. Found it. Needed to refill the blades. Got out the box of refills out. Opened it and, here I am not too sure how it happened, I sliced my right index finger rather deeply. Bleed like the perverbal stuck pig. Went to my medical kit and squirted some antibacterial spray into it and tried to bandage it. Too much blood. Finally got some bandage on it. Decided to go to a doctor. Found a small plastic bag to put my hand into and drove to the city office to find directions to a doctor.
They sent me to a pediatrician. Not good. Made the Mothers of the wee ones a little sick. The nurses gave me a better bandage and sent me on my way with direction to an orthopedic surgeon who they had called. Drove around his neighborhood for 30 minutes until I finally found his small very nice hospital. Twenty five minutes later I was on my way with four sutures and a weeks worth of antibiotics.
The cost? About 38 US dollars or more precisely yen2,930.
No pictures so maybe it did not happen. I was careless and was lucky it was not worse.
