Draining a blood blister

Not for the squeamish, especially if you don't like blood or needles, or both.
But if you enjoy medical curiosities, kinda cool when it changed color at the end.
Just in time for Halloween!

(PS: Thanks Alex for the syringe and suggestion!)


  1. Wow Mike that was impressive. More than 2 cc's. That's more than 4 times my Lean Horse blister. Just to clarify for your readers, I had a syringe with me because I am diabetic.

    How are you feeling today?

  2. Mike, You continue to amaze me with your capabilities! Aunt Judi

  3. @Alex: Thanks again for the suggestion, and I think you just clarified everything for both of my readers!

    @AJ: Thanks for stopping by, and good seeing y'all last weekend! Had fun with Max on Saturday as well, hope I'm not too much of a bad influence!

  4. Damn, that's a nice blister video! Have you ever seen the documentary "The Distance of Truth"? It's about Ferge Hawk running Badwater a few years ago. There's a "bonus" feature on the DVD that shows the foot doctor draining the blisters on one of his feet the day after the race. Pretty gnarly.
