Contrary to almost everything Mojo stands for, apparently this afternoon I have an appointment with a plastic surgeon so someone with authority and training can see how badly I am wounded. Since up 'til now I've only seen nurse practitioners.
I haven't seen the wounds myself since it happened. Except a bit of my arm briefly when they unwrapped it this morning prior to what they call "debriding". Which yes, is what it sounds like, only not quite so pleasant. It didn't look GREAT, but then again I don't think I've ever had a burn that looks really GOOD. The room does not have mirrors, which is the only way I can see my injuries. I don't know if that's a good thing or not.
When they sent me home with the expensive burn victim cream they also gave me a care sheet, and the last bit of the care sheet tells you "how to avoid burns in the future". Here, I'll condense it for you. "Stay away from hot things."
Genius. Sheer genius.
