I have like 2 small scabs let. I have followed my doctors directions to the letter in regards to washing, and vit e oil. I dont see any hair coming through the scab so I dont know if grafts are under it or not. I hope they are. I'm just a bit concerned that the scab will stop hair from growing in that area.

Any wisdom?

your worrying too much. the hair won't start growing for 3-4 months anyway, and by that time the scab will be long gone.

Scabs do not cause hair stop growing. The hair "bulb" is under the surface the scalp is basically surface level. However, scabbing will slow down the regrowth thus many surgeons suggest trying to keep scabs moist with saline or graphcite first week post op to lessen the scabbing. Also when scabbing occurs, let it heal/disolve naturally-- as if you assist too much you might be at risk of light scarring.
