Woundseal and Thin Blood

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

I just found out what wafarin really does for you. I was making a big pot of soup today, chopping up three pounds of large onions, and on the last cut of the last onion, the knife slipped and cut about a quarter inch of skin loose from the outside of my middle finger, just above the nail toward the index finger. I tried starch, and that wouldn't stop the bleeding, but I had bought a package of woundseal when I started taking the wafarin - the stuff they use on the battlefield to stop bleeding. The first pass almost worked, but it was still bleeding through in two places, so I used some more and did get it to stop. Then I got the "scab" wet washing up, and it started bleeding again. I used another package on that, got it stopped again, and put a band-aid on to protect things. I thought that should do it, but later I looked, and the bandage has a spot of blood about 3/8 of an inch in diameter showing, where the bandage adsorbed blood.

That stuff really does keep your blood from clotting,. I wonder what would happen if you were in a serious car crash?

    How often do you have your blood checked?? I have to take this awful drug also, but I sure do not want a stroke. When I was first put on warfarin they had my blood way toooo thin. It took quite some time and then I could tell by the way I felt when it was too thin. I now test my blood at home every month or anytime I feel like I might be off. You might want to check it out. We have to find what works for ourselves. Pressure is the best answer.

    If you were in a car crash you would just kiss your butt goodbye.
bandaids don't work. I usually make a pad of papertowel and then use bandaid to keep tight pressure on wound. Keeping pressure on it is best way.

Born to Tamper

Friday, April 13, 2012



I bake my own bread, and have been thinking of sourdough for a while. It's an old fashioned way to make bread, and supposedly the only way to get started is to buy some starter, and then keep it alive. Instead, I'm trying to make a starter using a fairly simple technique, except that the guy mentioned that it was done with either apple cider or unsweetened pineapple juice and whole grain flour - either whole wheat or rye. I have both flours in stock, but no pineapple juice, which the recipe calls for. Today is the second day, and when I opened it up and smelled the mess it just smelled like apple cider. I suspect the first pass is going to be a failure. I guess I was born to tamper.

This was the approach I decided to try first:
