Per our routine, Scott was talking to me while I was working on dinner. I released the steam on my Power Pressure Cooker XL and then I grabbed a sponge to wipe the sink. All of a sudden we both heard a loud hissing sound, followed by a bellowing pop. Without notice, the lid flew off the pressure cooker, throwing boiling water and chopped up potatoes over everything within two feet.
My left hand was coated with boiling water and the pain was unbearable. We immediately tried to cook my hand down with cold water and an icepack. As I watched blisters begin to form, we knew that I needed to get medical attention.
We packed up Timmy and headed to Urgent Care. I have second-degree burns over 30% of my left hand. The prescription cream helps, but the pain is omnipresent. Hopefully, it will heal quickly because right now I'm miserable.
