After a lot of care, medications, and Dr. visits, it looks like I'm well on the way to recovery! I have some nerve damage, that may or may not be permanent, and I will be wearing my engagement and wedding rings on my right hand due to the scar tissue build up. I'm just so thankful it has only taken 3 weeks to come this far... Hopefully, my Dr will give me the go ahead to go back to normal use.
Thank you to everyone for the well wishes, it means the world to me :)
And one more reminder to please, please, please check your PPE!!!

That looks significantly better Stacy! Ever since I saw your post with the horrible burn I've been looking at my gloves constantly. Yesterday I noted a small tear in one from my fingernail so off it went immediately. I'm so sorry you had to go through this but hopefully it'll help someone else avoid such a horrible and painful ordeal. Keep on healing and soaping!

That is lots better! I am so happy for you!

I really hope the mods are looking at your original post for the possibility of making it a stickie! As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words!
