Reposting these pictures here. Because @xp29 let me know Beebz does seem to have / have had an injury causing her to lose the tip of her tail. Also to serve as a reference for anyone with the same issue as when I searched the forum I couldn't find pictures with this high of a zoom level so you can really see each scale in detail. For reference the black cord is the zoomed hygrometer cord.

First I should ask, is the consensus that the tip was severed at some point and has fully healed? That being the case is any sort of treatment necessary at this point? Does losing the tip of the tail make her more susceptible to tail rot or other issues in the future, and if so what precautions can I take to protect her?

The tail looks fine -- if there was infection it would be black all the way around and look brittle and thin looking -- it looks like it has healed fine and I dont think you need to worry about it

Thank you. I'm just kinda beating myself up because I didn't even know my little princess had a piece missing. you are right though that all the scales still there look healthy.

This is what it looks like without extreme magnification. The rock is about an inch and a half long to provide some perspective

Surgery, Blood transfusion, Internal bleeding (potentially) not confirmed, Sudden onset anemia, potential aneurism etc. Echo stayed in the hospital overnight and the dr did not have good news when she called to update me today. I’m not 100% sure that I made the right decision by coming to pick her up (against what the dr recommended) but she was in far worse condition since having dropped her off. Help! 2nd opinion!?
The basking side of my tank isn't getting up to the suggested 100degrees. Does that mean I need to get a new basking light?
does her poop look healthy?
In your perspective does my baby bearded dragon look healthy or unhealthy? Does she look bloated? she is active and eats very well also she is in her basking spot all day
