Get well soon, Aus Kiwi

I have a fair idea what burns are, and they are not pleasant

3C9FAB5F-B084-490B-A351-BE3EBF7031AA.jpegThanks guys . All good . My hand and shoulder area is nearly healed . The 14 min cold shower though nearly killed me pain wise did pay off healing wise! The covers bandages they place over burns helps big time . Thanks to Concord Hospital Burns unit .. Boy oh boy . Cleaned tank out properly and welded it back together the other day . Talk about anxiety!! Used my porta power to push it back together .Photo of hand as it is now .
