Well, back from the doc, and it was good.... even the scalpelling part!  The truth is that the doctor used the scalpel to slide across the surface of the skin (no incisions were made at all, nor did he intend to, unless completely necessary) because it would 'catch' slightly against tiny pieces of glass so that he could find more of them to tweezer out. I didn't even feel it.  No cutting, no blood, no squeezing.... just sitting there completely still so he could get the little pieces.  Sooooo.... I'm a bit of a silly goose, getting myself all flustered for no good reason.  Note to self:  HE is the one with the medical degree, not me, and I should probably quit thinking of him as the dentist from Little Shop of Horrors.

Anchor-Hocking finally emailed me, offered to replace the baking dish (still a little nervous.  It might make a nice succulent garden planter though) , and the cost of the glass to the oven.  Since insurance is going to replace it, I asked if they'd be willing to pay the deductible instead, so we'll see.

All is well that's ending well, it seems.  Thanks for all of your suggestions and concern!  I have now learned two new ways to get rid of glass (soap and tape), and to have epsom salts available at all times. Does anyone happen to know if the salts work on pet slivers too?  None of my dogs have splinters of glass on them (thank goodness) but it's more of a thing for future knowledge, should it ever come up.

I am kinda nervous about using glassware now...I think I'll have my fiance take things out of the oven from now on Cheesy

Saying that when we move into a new place around August time my mum is giving us her cast iron casserole dishes because they're too heavy for her to lift now so she wants us to use them instead (woo).

Last night I made brownies, but I wanted to put a mint glaze icing on it that need to be in the fridge, so first i had to take them out of the metal pan they were in.  Of course it doesn't come out like a cake, it came out in big chunks, which I sort of tried to put together and just ended up squishing everything and then pouring the glaze on.  Ugly? You betcha!  Tasty?  Absolutely!  Cheesy

Glad that the Doctor's visit wasn't as bad as you thought.  I walked around with a piece of glass in my foot for years, trod on a broken bottle when I was 4.  When I started working at 17 and wearing high heels, I noticed pain in my foot.  After Doctor's visits, with lots of different diagnosis, not one picked up that it could have been glass, even though they asked me about the scar and I told them what happened.  Ended up with an abscess and off I limped to the doctor who simply scraped at it while scoffing about my thought that it was glass.  Limped home where abscess started forming again so I took matters into my own hands and scraped it myself - second scrape hit that chunk of glass. 

I mostly use the tape method of picking up glass but have heard that a piece of bread can also be used in a fix, the glass sticks in the bread.
