Bandage off

StitchesWhen I got up this morning.   I went to bathroom and looked in the mirror, my head was swollen and my eye was all puffy.   I woke my husband up to call the doctor about bandage off.    My husband got confirmation that he could cut it off and  grabbed the scissors to cut the gauze off.    He took it off really gently taking really small cuts.  As I took the bandage off I took a deep breath.  I am feeling much better now that I got the bandage off. I saw behind my  ear that I have 6 staples.   I can feel the implant under my skin.  It makes me smile.  I wonder why my eye is puffy.    I really want to wash my hair but I can’t because of the incision.   Bummer!   I took a shower with dry towel wrap around my head.   I am about to go over to my mom’s house.   So she can take care of me when my husband is at work.   I don’t want to be alone at home with my dog.   I don’t want go outside in public to see my eye puffy and staples behind my ear.    I am able to sleep with my pillow normally without the bandage on. I am glad the doctors cut behind my ear instead of shave hair like they did previously.  They really didn’t shave that much hair.  Whew! Not that bad!   Here is the picture.

    Aieee, that sends shivers up me spine. Glad I had the glue. But it looks real neat and behind the ear plus not much hair shaven off too. Cool.

    Wow! Great photo of your staples. Interesting how each doctor has a different way of closing the incision. Some have staples, some have stitches that need to be removed, and some have self disolving stitches. Amanda had the self-disolving stitches. Jennifer 🙂
