Yesterday, I went to see Mr Ashcroft who removed the steri strips and the pack from inside my ear. That day I had been so itching to have them to removed and also had been counting the days to have a hair wash!!! He was pleased all was well and that the scar looked very neat. The first thing I did when I got home was dash the bathroom and have a good hair wash with the help of my mum of course. I felt so much better afterwards and it was so good to smell my hair again. Patience has paid off!!! I was able to see the scar behind the mirror and I was impressed. The scar feels numb and a little swollen. I still have to be careful not to let my scar catch an infection.

I was shown the processor and all the other accessories. Here is what the processor looks like:
