Are These Normal Results 5 Days After Fraxel Repair? (photo)

I am on day 5 of my fraxel repair. I wanted to see if my pics look normal for just having a deep fraxel repair done. It seems like my skin is trying to peel, and the vinegar soaks are making the skin soggy but the skin is not falling off yet. My doctor is closed for the weekend, so I was thought I would post here to see if I should be concerned or not. I would appreciate advice. Even though I knew to expect redness, peeling, swelling, I was shocked and worried after it was done.
