Oh drat! I spilled vinegar on my polished concrete floor!

I broke a very large bottle of apple cider vinegar on my floor -- my polished concrete floor. I managed to clean up the spill quite quickly, but it ate away at the surface. You can see the horrid results here
. (You may also see some of my tears on the floor.)

I looked online and I found this which has to do with counters but seems right
...so I think I understand what happened.
My question -- I guess it would take all day or many days -- but do you think I can actually attempt to sand it out with a fine-grit diamond hand pad? Or do I need to get an electric polisher? They are crazy expensive
Should I rent one? Would some other tool work or would it just not be powerful enough?
After I am done -- assuming I can do anything -- do I put some type of wax or polish on it. The floor does not seem waxed or sealed -- just buffed up.
I guess I could buy a huge rug...but I want to sell this place in a year or two, so I'd like to fix it.
