I did a stupid thing last night.. I burned my hand while making dinner. I was taking a Healthy Choice frozen dinner out of the microwave last night after getting home from clinical at Jefferson and it tipped… well, it was one of THOSE frozen dinners that had the sauce in the bottom and then you mixed the food from the top porition….As I was taking it out of the microwave (I was stupid… only used one hand), the bowl tipped and scaulding, boiling, hot, THICK, “some-type-of-chinese-sauce” spilled all over onto my hand & oh.. yea… splashed onto my face. It took me a few seconds to reach the sink to wash it off & to hold my hand under the water…but the damage was already done.
The rest of the night I held a never used bag of frozen Trader Joes veggies on it (remind me to NEVER eat those veggies.. since I threw them back into the freezer)… by 11.30 the pain was soooo intense, throbbing, and just plain hurt like hell I was thinking about going to the ER… I had no clue what they were going to do for me… so, I stuck it out… I went to bed with a bag of ice and every second that it was removed from my hand the pain just came back… I must have fell asleep around 1.30 this morning (it’s almost 6am now). It still hurts a little when I bend it….but the throbbing has thankfully stopped.
Friday afternoon… Montreal here I come. Until then… I have the EXIT HESI to mull over and to probably fail. I need an 850 to pass… and we all know how good I am about getting those 850s. Yea, not so good.
Ta-ta for now.
