nothing much

Thanks are quiet in my braces-covered world.  Or, mainly, I’ve just gotten whiny and haven’t wanted to fill a blog with complaints.  I’m ready for this to be over!  I know its just a few months more, but man, it’s dragging.  What’d’ya do, though, right?  Just wait…


Chin and lower lip are still pretty numb.  Occasional tingles and I do notice when I managed to bite my lip instead of my sandwich, but otherwise, nothing. 


Sigh…OK, I’m logging off before I get too Debbie Downer about this again!  Hope everyone is having a great week!

The unofficial word from Dr. Weber was 3 to 3 1/2 more months.  I go back in 8 weeks for my "finishing bands" (which the girl warned me are horrible!  Anyone have any tips?).  Ooh, and I got most of my hooks off.  And got to floss sans wires while she took them off.  Yea!

So, not before my birthday, but at least before Christmas! :)

update from my surgeon

Totally forgot to mention that I saw Dr. Desa last week - he was extremely enthusiastic about how I am healing and thought that I should be very close to done with the braces (oh, how I wish it was his decision!). 

I told him that a lot of my friends here were having similar experiences, so I wasn't so nervous that my progress was anything but normal.  He was highly intrigued about the whole world of braces/surgery blogging....

Anyways, appointment with the ortho on Tuesday, at which I'm supposed to get some of these surgical posts off - hurray! 

Ooh, and I won a limbo contest last night...after I cleared the last bar, someone told me to try even lower...I did, and smack my tooth on the bar. Ow.  That's what I get for showing off!
