I've got poorly controlled asthma and poorly controlled allergies, so I've been pretty miserable of late. Today my one-side-stuffy-one-side-runny nose felt like it was finally going to clear. I blew my nose and a gusher of blood came out, so I applied pressure for five minutes, which is usually enough for a nose bleed. It didn't work, so I applied pressure for a full ten minutes while sitting with my head bent forward. Still didn't work. I pinched my nose tight and packed my face in ice and waited 15 minutes. Still bleeding, so I had to go to urgent care. It stopped bleeding during the drive (of course).
Anyone have suggestions on how to clean bloodstains out of car upholstery?
btw, wish Helen a happy birthday today.
