Sorry about the low light pic, but I'm so excited that I can start soaping again!!! I got the ok today!!!
I'm finally well on the way to mending, all fresh, new skin, no open burn anymore! I just have to take a couple extra safety steps, and take my time.
On a kind of sad note, I can't wear my engagement and wedding rings any more...my ring finger went from a size 5 1/2 to a 7 1/2 from scar tissue, and they can't be resized that much :(
Up side to that is, hubby is getting me new ones!!!
Thanks for all the thoughts over these last weeks, it's much appreciated!
Happy soaping!!! :thumbup:

Yay for being healed enough to soap! Thank you very much for sharing your experience. It is an amazing reminder to check my gloves.

Yes - what a relief. Your experience has made me more mindful about safety and to stop tempting fate with little "cheats".

Thank you for the entire post!
I just got back from getting another 50 pair of nitrile disposables. One thing the can never be stressed enough.

Sorry to hear about the accident and the scar tissue but glad DH is getting you a new set!

Soap on!
