Dinner Blogging

Tonight for dinner I doused my hand with boiling water.

I used that same boiling water to prepare penne pasta.

The pasta dish also had ground beef, lots of garlic, rosemary, red pepper, cilantro, olive oil, lime juice, broccoli, cauliflower, asiago and romano cheese.

We had wine too.

My hand pulses with pain, an ebb and flow of it with each heart beat.

Good times.

Pasta looks wonderful. Sorry to hear about your hand though. :-(

The pasta looks delicious but your poor hand! I hope you'll take yourself to Emergency or the doctor - they'll give you silvadene (sp?) cream for it - but you do need a prescription to get it, I think. It takes the pain right down and helps keep the skin soft so you don't go through that nasty hard pulling stage as much. A friend just last week had a coffee press thingy come apart on her last week and scald her arm badly and she told me about the silvadene stuff.

Ow! Poor you, not fun. Gauze bandage soaked in petroleum jelly - change daily. You can get it ready-made from a decent pharmacy... that & Silar's cream will keep you comfy & help prevent scarring. When the wound's closed, treat with lavender oil (helps reduce scars).

Luckily, after a nasty cooking burn to my big fat belly while I was 8 months pregnant and not allowed to take any pain meds, I got in the habit of always have 2nd Skin Burn Pads in the house. They are a hydrogel product that absorbs the heat and if you get them on a burn immediately I find they significantly reduce the damage, turning something that would have blistered into just something red and surface sore.

Overall this morning I am really good considering. One finger is sore to the touch and is paler than normal. Two other fingers are sore to air, touch or bending and are red, but no blistering at all. The back of my hand is also sore only to touch, and the fourth finger is as if nothing happened at all.

I am thrilled because I am planning to go to an art workshop this afternoon and last night I thought I might have to cancel.

Thanks for the concern and advice.

Pasta was decent considering I wasn't really in the mood anymore. The wine was a bit too sweet for my liking.

Ok, so now I'm going to add my two cents worht of advice... do you have aloe vera plants where you are? If you strip the outer layer off a leaf, the gel underneath is great for burns- takes the heat out of them and helps repair the skin without scars. Good luck with the healing- burns are so painful. :-(

Seems I was a bit overconfident in my assessment this morning. Things are definitely in great shape, all things considering, but one finger has more swelling and pain than it did this morning, and I probably should not have headed out for the day without taking Aleve.

Still, not too bad.

Cut myself twice during my art class though. :P

You can bet that Murphy's Law will now kick in and you'll keep knocking your poor hand... or every clumsy bugger around you will... Good luck!
