I have a date!!!!!!! an estimated date, but I have a date!!!!!! So bloody excited!
I had my 4th brace tightening on Tuesday and my wonderful Orthodontist told me that my teeth were ready! He said that he would write to Mr Harrop my surgeon and ask him to schedule me in for a May operation, but I've asked him to move it to a June operation as I'm on holiday end of May and I must have my holidays!
So a June surgery is on the cards! If all goes to plan I will be having surgery 13 months after having my braces on. I never thought it would be as quick as that, I don't think my Orthodontist did either but my little teeth have been on a mission.
I had some pictures taken after my tightening, I had a thicker wire on top no change on the bottom, my next appointment is in April, so hopefully I will find out some more about dates, measurements and the next steps etc, I really should ask more questions!
I went back to work after my appointment and started to tell the girls I work with the good news and then I just went a bit hysterical, I was laughing, crying, smiling, making no sense whatsoever. I just couldn't control myself, I was happy, excited, relieved, nervous and I think the years of emotion and problems and hurt just all came out. I just kept saying "I get a new face, I get a new face, I get a new face" and I will, I will get a new face.
I hope my new face solves a lot of problems and issues for me. I really hope it does and I hope I like it!
I'm all ready planning my "Goodbye Face" party and I think I'm going to introduce a soup and smoothie league table at work, so other people can get creating amazing soup and smoothie recipes for me! Some may say that's lazy I say it's enterprising, why not get everyone involved!
Aaaaaaaaaah! I'm having double jaw surgery in 4 months!!! It's actually happening! I'm so excited!!!
Happy weekend everyone! xxx
