“bled,” “returned bleeding from nostrils” – typically indicates pulmonary hemorrhage

  1. The connections for La Purrisma said she was vanned off “ because she had a little blood in her nostrils”. What a shrug off.
    Don’t want to think of what her lungs looked like if it was already coming out her nose.
