I wa working with cement today for about 2 hours, with some soaked gloves... It was pretty painful, but I figured it was just sand in the gloves irritating the skin. Now, it feels like soeone's pouring acids and lemon juice on my hands... Anybody ever go through this? The wife is telling me to go to the ER, but at $200 copay, I think I'll wait to make sure I need to (like when my hand falls off. Glad I give up so much of my check for insurance!)... Check this out: now that I'm 20 minutes out of the shower, they're oozing puss... We just counted 10 blisters and nasty irritation (it burns ma!), on top of the swelling. She just hung up with the hospital, and of course they insist I need to come in... The dumb things I do on saturday afternoons... But, I finally got the floor of the crawl space cemented! Let's see that rat try to dig his way back in now!
