She returned her scissors to their case.

'I have sutured the wound and applied clean bandages. It should heal within about three weeks. The stitches must then be removed. I shall do so if you wish. In the meantime, I advise you to take William to see Brother Arnold in Dorchester. He is better qualified than I and his opinion should be sought, both on the injury to the head and the broken arm.'

Harald noted that William's right arm was broken. His son referred to it as his sword arm.

'Brother Luke has set the bones and is concerned that this type of break can cause deformities in later life.'

A deformed sword arm didn't seem such a bad thing to Harald. His poor eyesight had saved him from the Gascoigne obsession with fighting. Pen and paper were more to his liking than sword and shield. He felt more at home with farmers and business people than with his own family. He often wished he could break loose from them.
