Most swelling appears to have gone, though certain hand movements can be a little tender (I have been babying my hand as you would not believe).
Around day four a light-yellow bruising appeared around sites. It has lightened daily and almost now gone, and not even visible on camera. In the right light, the amber tint is visible.
The scabs are hanging on for dear life and as soon as they fall, I will start the scar cream.
One thing of slight concern is xSIID. I am getting good reads and have done so since day one, though the blue LED has not been really visible at all. If I turn all the lights off, allow my eyes to adjust, and in pitch black, I can barely see what I think is a poor excuse for an almost invisible muddy colour blue (or it’s wishful thinking). I really hope that it is just pooled blood or something, and not an issue with the LED.
The xLED on the other hand… It be glowing STRONG. And to be honest has since installed. It’s just a little cleaner in colour now.
When making a fist, or closing my hand around something, the xLED does become visible. On the other hand, I am not able to see the xSIID at all and am not wanting to feel around for it until it has healed a little more.
All-in-all, it’s looking promising!
