Apologies.....i have been so busy

Hello everyone!!!!!!!

Im so sorry for being such a bad blogger. Things have been sooo hectic lately. Can you believe that i have only 22 days left until my surgery. I am really, really nervous. Time has flown by so quickly that im just so surprised how little time i have left.
Most of the time has been taken up with surgeon appointments, orthodontist appointments, anesthetist, blood donations etc etc. HECTIC!!!!

I hope everyone is doing well on their journeys. Its a long and tough road but im sure the results are going to be well worth it :)
Stay tuned :)

The missing link

I have made an incredible scientific discovery!!!!!!!!!!!! I have found the missing link between humans and apes and its in the form of ME.
I had some OPG xrays completed yesterday and did i get a shock! I completely look like an ape face. Ha ha ha. Its pretty funny though.

Soooo update. My surgery is for May 4th so thats in 76 days. Im super super excited and just cant wait for all this to be over. At the moment at the orthodontist, he is shaving (yes literally shaving) my teeth to make them more square and hence, eliminating gaps like the one bewteen my front teeth. Its such a weird feeling having a little saw making gaps. Feels like your whole mouth is vibrating.
So now i have some power chains to pull me teeth together really fast and i will be going back to the ortho in 2 weeks for a repeat.

I also have another appointment with my surgeon in March so i will have more news then. Below is some xrays and updated photos. Enjoy!!!!! xxxx

Final wires!

Merry xmas and a happy new year bloggers!!!! Hope everyone had a fantastic holiday with their loved ones and enjoyed the festivities. I know i did :)
Some great news to report. My teeth are moving nicely and i now have the final wire on my bottom teeth. I have 2 further wires on the top but then im DONE!!! Yay!!!! I have been given the go ahead to go back to the surgeon and he will be calling me next week with my surgery date. SO exciting. I cant believe that i have had these braces on for 8 months already. It really dosent seem to have been that long.

I have updates my pictures so you can see my bite now. No big changes except everything is that tiny bit straighter. Most of the movement is going on in my back molars and getting them all lined up. I have a tiny gap in between the front two teeth that the ortho is going to fix next time. I honestly didnt think that gap as a problem but he is going to make everything perfect. So they will be "shaving" in betweeen my front teeth so the braces can move them together and eliminate the gap. Something to look forward to on the 15th Feb :P

Photos photos and more photos

Well, i don't know about you guys but im a sucker for photos. I love seeing comparisons of before and afters so i thought i would give everyone some visual stimulation :) I have gone through some older photos (pre-braces) to find you some images of my jaws. As can be seen, my underbite is noticeable even though i didnt consider it to be that bad. Obviously, as in every photo im laughing or having a good time. Enjoy and leave feedback please and soon enough in a few months i will be able to put up some after photos YAY!!!!!

Show and Tell

Ok...so its been nearly 8 months since i had my braces re-attached to my face. I thought i would give you guys a bit of a photo update even though not allot has changed. The space between my jaws is bigger now and you can really start to tell that the midlines of the centre of the jaws is off. Im back to the ortho on Jan 4th and then to the surgeon. I only have one wire to go on my lower jaw and 2 more for the top. Hope everyone is doing well xxx

The good ole days

Hello fellow bloggers.
I had once again another ortho visit a few days ago and my molars are moving (ever so slightly) but that means my surgery will be around April 2010 now, instead of Dec. I was a bit upset at first but whats a few more months??? Its not going to kill me :)

Overall, life has been going very well. Work is steady, my house is coming along nicely, i feel generally healthy!!! I have however, fallen into the trap of the zip-and-squeeze bags. I ordered them a few months ago only to find out that the company has closed. What a bummer. Im unsure how im going to get my money back but will sort that out soon enough. It was only like AU$15.00 anyway but its the principle of it.

Im very much over my braces at the moment though (who isnt). The worst part is when you first get up in the morning and your braces have literally sunk into your inside lip. Then trying to pry away the metal from the skin is horrible and then its sore for ages afterwards. Ha ha ha its a weird thing that only other brace faces could understand. :) Im sure you all get the whole "sticky braces" from time to time.

Bad run of luck

It seems much of the time that i write in my blogs, i just bring bad news and whinge. My apologies ha ha ha. But im going to do it again. My work vehicle got broken into this morning and im furious!!!! My GPS, ipod, CD's, gift vouchers all got stolen and as its a company vehicle, were not sure if we can claim the personal items. Im so bummed right now and feel unsafe where i am. Luckily thou, my Dad has come to the rescue and has got me a brand new high tec alarm system for the house and carport so this wont happen again (touch wood). What kind of person does it takle to steal???? Dont they know how long and hard you have to work to get these things??? Whats wrong with the human race that were more willing to steal from each other then help? Its all beyond me.

In other news, i have posted up some more photos of my teeth as its has been a while. There is no significant changes since were just waiting for my back molars to move but i thought i would post them anyways :) You can really see in the photos that the midlines of my teeth dont line up and will need correcting. Also, my teeth at the bottom have been worn down in places cos of my underbite so they look uneven. Im getting really excited now for the surgery and cant wait for it to happen. Allot of you ortho bloggers are in the stages of surgery and its helping so much to read what your going through and how your coping. Good luck with your recoveries. xxx
