The sole-of-foot wound got a bit bad, even though I wrapped it and put medicine. Finally (after Doctor Amma looked at it near the Mandir), I went to the hospital. They scolded me severally for not coming when it happened – said the hurt was filled with pus, deemed it “abscess”, cut it open with scalpel, wrapped it and sent me off with antibiotics. I guess now it will be OK. (Meanwhile I walk about with a blood-dried soaked bandage.) Seeing the doctor happily smile as he lifted up the knife and cut a big gash in my foot to let out the pus (and lots of watery blood also) will probaby haunt me for the rest of my life! But all for the best, I'm sure.
