Rothera, Antarctica

Rothera A+E on a Thursday afternoon. Poor Greendog was tackling the post lunch washing-up when an unyielding pineapple tin sliced the top of his right-hand middle finger. Dr Rob doc thought it would be the perfect opportunity for us to practise our sewing skills so, after he dosed Rob up with some local anaesthetic, I put in the first stitch and Sister Jackson administered the second. Dr Rob doc guided us through perfectly and Rob was the perfect patient. He is now back up on his feet, and will make a full recovery. Just another day in Rothera A+E.
