My belly button is included for scale. It's definitely smaller now. All that is left are the actual blisters--yesterday the whole area was about 4" x 4".
1. Had I not burned myself, Ginger really would have been scalded--and that would have been horrible. Yes, it hurts, and showering is no longer my fave, but it really is a better option for me to deal with this than have a horribly disfigured cat who can't understand his suffering, right?
2. Amy Bee has pointed out that maybe I should really just stay out of my kitchen. I would add to that maybe I should just really not make pasta.
What makes this whole thing more complicated? My shoulder was cupped yesterday.
See that nasty bruise? It does feel much better, though.
Also, you have no idea how hard it is to photograph your own shoulder.
Thank goodness that my officemate is out today.
All in all, I may look horrible, and it may hurt when I breathe deeply, but the alternatives were much worse.
