Eight Weeks!!!!

ll
Top row is before braces/surgery- middle row is 2 1/2 weeks post op - bottom row is 8 weeks post op



You can see how much the swelling has gone down
What, WHAT, WHAT!?!?!?!  Had an ortho visit yesterday and he said things look great!  I am progressing VERY well and am potentially only two months away from debanding!  WHAT!!! I was so exciting I couldn't stand it!  YEAH!  Will know for sure my next appointment which is Jan 3rd.  He is trying to get things moving along because he knows what a pain it is to be over three hours away.  I did almost seven hours of driving yesterday.  But who cares because I am on the home stretch! 

Stopped by the surgeon's office and he said I am looking great, healing well and won't have to see him again until my braces are off. 

Seriously if you live in Detroit.....my ortho and surgeon are top notch.  Could not give them a higher recommendation!

AND...my insurance has paid all of my bills!!!!  Now remember I still had a $3,000 deductible and I paid for and the braces ($7200). My insurance even covered some of my geniopolasty.  I couldn't believe it!  I actually got a check back from the surgeon yesterday because I overpaid.  By A LOT!  HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!  I called Anthem to thank them!  :)

7 1/2 weeks Post Op

7 1/2 weeks post op- still me but without gummy mcgummerson!  :)




Continuing to improve and couldn't be happier.  Feeling is coming back more and more I  would say I now have 20% feeling in lower lip and chin but roof of my mouth is still totally numb.  

I ate a slice (well three slices) of peanut butter toast today!!  I COULD BITE INTO IT!!! This is a first!  So excited.
