Malachi's Scar/Incision Left Ear

Warning. Semi-graphic photo of incision site. Don't look if you don't have the stomach for it!

Malachi is still wearing his head gear bandage but rips it off every once in a while. I'm keeping it on for a little while longer mostly  because I'm having the worst time looking at the incision. The outside is held together by Dermabond (skin glue). It looks shiny and wet even though it's dry. It kind of makes the incision look like it's draining and oozing (it's not really). It kind of freaks me out. The incision itself is no longer than 2 inches and runs along where the back of his ear connects with his head. His scar will hardly be noticeable and should be further covered by his processor.

  1. The good news is that it's barely noticeable once it's totally healed. CJ's is so carefully aligned with the seam of his ear that you can't see it at all.
