I can tell my nose is healing up looking at the last pictures taken. Last Monday a day before my 3 month mark I pulled out a stitch about 1/2 the size of an eye lash under my nose. I could tell something was there and it was dark. My husband told me to get something and see if it would come out so I used a little safety pin and popped right out. It was trying to heal around this area and now I know why it was still kind of buckled there.
