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.

Lol, I thought it was just me who had the sticky braces problem. Glad to know I'm not alone :D

Keep going, April's only around the corner, it'll all be worth it in the end!

OH! Just wait until you have surgery. They put all of the surgical hooks on before surgery. I woke up after surgery and they had put a piece of tape on my upper lip to make the swelling go inward. My upper lip swelled into the hooks and brackets and tore my lip to shreds. It was awful!!

My braces stick on the bottom during the night. Every morning I have to move my lips around to get the braces out! Oh' well.

Your surgery is very close. Last April it was me and now it is your turn. It doesn't seem like a year that we have been online 'jaw bloggers'. LOL

I am glad you are doing well. It is always good to hear from you.

Blessings to you!
