Makin BLTs tonight for dinner and decided to cook the whole package of bacon so that it wouldn't go bad in the fridge and can be used for sandwhichs or a quick breakfast sandwich in the morning. I cooked it all up, at a BUNCH of grease piping hot and went to dump it out back off the porch. Well the gate on the porch was open and the dogs were waiting to force their way in. While trying to prevent hot grease straight from the burner from spilling on the dogs, I fell forward and the grease came straight back across my hand. This was the worse pain I've felt in a long time. The skin instantly melted in some areas and within about 20 minutes I had blisters forming in other areas. The hair is under the skin now where it melted on top. Went to the ER in terrible pain, took forever to get back in the back where they hit me with a nice dose of morphine that helped take the edge, but never actually made the pain away. Now I've got hit by shrapnel, lobbed a chunk of finger, and have hurt myself in many many ways, but the intense burning that lasted forever far out did those. Doc says its second and very very mild third degree burns, so it should heal up with some scarring, but nothing serious. So now I have a big ol gause wrapped hand...fun.
