So close but yet so far..............

I called my oral surgeons office yesterday ready to come in tomorrow for an appointment with him and the soonest they can get me in is SEPTEMBER 20th.....what?!?!?!

So with my some super schmoozing I was able to get her to schedule my surgery for October 11th. She said the OS just will have to give his blessing at the September 20th appointment and we will be in business.

Man, it is hard to wait knowing your teeth are ready but I have waited for 15 years, I guess I can make it two months for my surgery.

We are moving next week, the girls start school on the 23rd and then it is football season, so I am sure time will pass quickly. :)

I just got back from my ortho appointment and I am READY for surgery! I have put a call in to my surgeon to get an appointment so I can get my surgery date set. SO EXCITED!!!

The ortho removed a few brackets and replaced them and oh my stars, removing the braces HURT!! Especially the the clear brackets which are supposedly harder to remove for some unknown reason. Holy Toledo, I about jumped out of my chair when he pulled them off. I was 100% sure that he took my tooth with him.

BUT WHO CARES because I am ready for surgery! I am sure that my surgeon is scheduling months out so I need to keep reminding myself we make have awhile but at least I know my teeth are cooperating!

Yeah me!

Off topic.......

This has nothing to do with jaws, teeth or my mouth. It is a little search engine I have come across that pays you to use them as your search engine.

Simply use Swagbucks instead of Google when searching the web and start winning “swagbucks”. Then cash in your “swagbucks” for gift cards including Starbucks, Amazon, Target, and more!!

Click on the link below and it will give you instructions on how to use the toolbar. I started using it a few weeks ago and am already up to 483 swagbucks....almost enough to qualify for a gift card and I have to do nothing extra to get it!

Enter the code BACKTOSCHOOL and get 70 free Swag Bucks right off the bat.

Search & Win

I love to save!

Cautiously optimistic......

Went to take my impressions of my teeth last week and have an appointment with the ortho Wednesday morning to go over my progress so far and next steps. Surgery is supposed to be in November but I am going to try to be optimistic that he says I am ready. I have had these braces on for almost five months which feels like an eternity.

Will let you know how the appointment goes.

Attached some pics of the party we went to this weekend. Rare braces pic!

On the move

We found out Friday that my husband is getting promoted which means moving to Columbus, OH. Now we are Buckeye's so this is a good thing. BUT me being three hours away from my orthodontist and surgeon....that is not a good thing.

As of now the plan is to continue with the same orthodontist and surgeon and just drive back and forth for my appointments. Not the easiest solution, especially after the surgery. Anyone know how long it will take post surgery until I am up for a three hour drive???

Always something.....................:)
