    Just leave it for now and keep your fingers crossed. I've had similar experiences and got away with it. Just. Good luck [​IMG]

    I think it should be okay, just try and leave it alone.

    I agree, leave it and the bleeding should stop.

    i have a heavey heart and such great sorry and anger at myself

    i deserved every profanity my wife threw at me

    the chick died

    i suspect it either died of sufocation due to the blood sealing the mebraine when it dried or it drowing in its own blood i dont think it bled to death as the bleeding did stop

    i feel like such a fool
