the real scar
so i realized that the last picture wasn't a true depiction of my battle wounds due to trick photography and posing, so here is what it really looks like so far, and hopefully will fade more by july 31st (yes that is the BIG DAY!)
p.s- yes you are correct i am still supposed to be in a neck brace, and i am pretty much all the time except for showers, and the occasional picture.... soon i will be free! but until then i take it off occasionally to try and build up all the muscles in my neck that i lost! going cold is going to be one adventure!
