I realized that I never posted pictures of el scar, and now you have seen... well you have seen it all through the Disney World pics! So here are the pictures so far.
I'd like to post a few directly post surgery because it shows a few sweet friends who dropped by. Beware, this is a post-op picture...just a heads up. The picture isn't bad, but I don't know, maybe some of you weirdos are sensitive to medical stuff. L-R: Suzanne, me, Joanne (Army friends! Joanne brought me the boa, silver platter, balloon, and some flowers. Yes, that is Jello on the tray :) and Suzanne brought an awesome Gerber Daisey plant that my sweet Da planted when we got home and is still blooming its little head off! Thanks ladies!)
I don't seem to have pictures of the healing process... but you should be happy about that. In the above you can see where they stapled the dressings to me, and the tape is over the actual incision.
Here I am today:
No lumps! No cysts that look like an Adam's apple! What what y'all!
And yes, that is the new, shorter, lighter Claire hair! Minus 5 inches all told!
I think it suits the scar too, kind of frames it, hehe.
And I guess it will get more red for the next few months... tomorrow I'm 5 weeks post-op. At 6 months, it will be its reddest, but at 1 yr, it'll be sluth. I had my mom send me a bunch of scars so I could cover it, but I really haven't felt the need. Hopefully it doesn't freak people out... I have noticed people see it, and notice it, but none (as of yet) have shriveled back in fear, so ya know. It is so very small, I cannot complain one bit.
Anyway, not that you actually wanted to know, but I decided I'd force feed you my progress. Take it! Take it all!!!
