4 to 6 Months Till Surgery!!!

Hello! I am excited to tell you all that I will have a new face in time to eat my Christmas dinner!

After my appointment last week I've been told I have only 2 more brace adjustments and impressions and then I meet my surgeon once more to discuss the FINAL plans for my surgery, and then I'm predicted to go under the knife between September and December!

SO! Here's a few pictures from early May, to last week with my new PINK braces - I'm told I won't be able to have a colour when I have my pre-surgery brace on so I thought I'd make the most of it.

So my underbite is fairly prominent now... I can't bite my nails at all now, and my chin seems to sick out alot more now, so I rarely keep my lips pursed >>>

So there you go!
I'm so excited, Theres finally a light at the end of the tunnel!
I'll be posting soon!

It's about time!

I've had some very bad luck the last few months.

Firstly, after not receiving my next appointment when I was supposed to, I called the Manor Hosptial, and was told that my LOVELY Dr has left the department. When I asked 'so when will my next appointment be?' I was told very bluntly 'youll get one when you get one' followed by the buzz of the receiver as it was abruptly placed down.


But finally an my appointment has came, Im incredibly excited as this will be the one which decides whether my surgery is this side or Christmas or next year. I will have a number of X-rays and impressions taken and my braces finally changed.
My other disappointment came when I was turned down from the paediatrics nursing course I had applied for for next January due to it being FULL. But I think is is a blessing in disguise, as this means I will have more time to recover from surgery and can start the year after with a NEW FACE!

I'll let you know how it goes next week, more photos too! You are very lucky viewer!!! X x x
