This episode involves Son no 1:
We went to the Sun City clinic and waited forever for a doctor to come (who never appeared – we gave up waiting after about 4 hours). Once we cleaned up his face we foud that he had cut his top lip on the left and right quite badly and his 4 front teeth were damaged to the extent that he lost them shortly thereafter. We spent a fortune on orthodontics a few years later. He still has the scars on his top lip today.
When we got back to Johannesburg and saw a doctor and he said the cuts should have been stitched up within a certain amount of time and as this period had now lapsed, there was not much one could do about it but to leave it to heal naturally. We have always been very careful with room service trolleys since then and never use the trolleys with the sides up.
