It was meant to  - but I'm serious - you could be in for some lifelong nasty skin conditions if you keep doing that - please don't do it again. ((hugs))

I once knew a builder whose hands were always cracked from using cement etc - we discovered that applying Germolene New Skin over the cracks really helped them to heal and keep them free from infection.

Verdun, sorry to hear your mum's not too good again - it sounds as if it may have been what's known as a Mini-stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) - Pa's had quite a few.  They differ from regular strokes in not resulting in any damage to the brain or physical disability.  Pa used to have one in the morning and then be totally recovered by teatime.  It does however increase the risk of a 'regular stroke'.  

Allium, your cat wouldn't have stood a chance against my Cuckoo Maran cockerel 'Everest'  - he looked like this one, only taller ....
