QuickClot (Stops Bleeding Fast) ~ This Could Be My Answer!

I think with this, I am home free to do some weed eating in my yard again!!

You know I never thought much about this until last October when my dad was put on Coumadin and when he went out to feed his hunting dogs and he was wearing flip flops and the dog got his chain caught on my dad's big toe and cut it just at the top of his toe nail and he was bleeding some terrible. Most of the family was out of town on a "sister trip" and my husband was out of town also and my daughter was at work. He could not get the bleeding to stop and every time he put his foot down it got tremendously worse. Finally we got a hold of my daughter's boyfriend who took in to the emergency room where they finally got the bleeding to stop. Luckily my daughter's boyfriend could go down to his house a couple times a day and take care of him because every time he would stand up for a week or so, it would start bleeding and he had animals that needed tended to and he needed someone to fix him something to eat and such.

Then in March of this year I was put on Coumadin (blood thinners) for blood clots in my lungs and I am such a klutz that we were all really worried about me getting hurt and bleeding to death. I have not been able to do some of the things I normally do like keeping the yard tended to. That has always been my thing. I do the weed eating and mowing. That is like my sanity since I do daycare and I am stuck in the house all the time. Since the Coumadin I have not been able to do that. I am going to get some of this and then I think I will be home free. With this, no one will be able to yell at me and say "Now, you know if something comes back off that weed-eater and hits you, you could bleed to death!" I am liking this!!

  1. Great idea. Now you have to remember to keep the handy too! And tell the kids where to find them and how to dial 911.

  2. Sounds like a handy thing to keep around for my toddler, who has just discovered the fine art of falling in ways that draw blood!
