Help in a crisis

Poor Elli had a major nose bleed today whilst we were out shopping. I just wanted to say a big thank you to the lady and gentleman who stopped and helped as I tried to stop the blood flow, right in the middle of a busy shopping centre. Fortunately all was well but it was so nice to have support from complete strangers in a time of crisis. Thank you.


  1. hope Elli is feeling better. It's amazing how much blood can flow in such a short time, isn't it?

  2. She's fine now thank you - yes it was a bit scary at one point but amazingly 5 minutes after it all stopped, she was bouncing around as though nothing had happened! More grey hairs :)

  3. Daniel has had 7 nosebleeds in the past 3 weeks. It's scary! All the cold, dry air and dry, heated homes bring them on. I hope Elli hasn't had any more!
