Yesterday while walking through the woods my eight year old son stood on a piece of wood that had a big nail sticking through it. we reported it to the woods office and went to the a and e at the local hospital which luckily is next to the woods. he foot did bleed quite a lot. The doctor looked a it, cleaned it and gave us some medience for him to ake for the next five days. You can stil see the hole in his foot but he is fine now. I was so pleased that my hubby was with me as our son is too heavy for me to carry him and that the hosiptla was near. The nurse gave my son a lovely teddy bear to bring home with him

Did they not give him a tetanus shot, as well. That is what would be done here. It must have been really a long nail to go through the sole of his boot. I hope he does well.
