Meet My Scar- Day 4

My scar today (please note that I just realized that I've been putting the wrong time on the scar a day pics...those occurred at 12 months 2 weeks)-
My scar today seems miraculously smaller. It's just over 4 inches now instead of the 5 inches that I started with only 4 days ago (and only 1 1/2 days of wearing the silicone strip). I'm REALLY surprised by this result. It also feels much softer and the color has changed a bit. *I have a theory about the size. I think I may have been a bit bloated when I started the pictures, so that could explain the shrinkage.

I forgot that I was wearing the strip yesterday until about halfway into my bath (which should be a testament to how comfortable it is...or possibly how sleep deprived I am) and was convinced that I ruined the strip. Nope. Just had to let it dry off and it was good to go again. I was worried the soap in my bath would affect the stickiness, but it's held tight, even after a long night of tossing and turning (I hurt my back last night).
I'm super excited to see more improvement!
