Day 102

Ok, so I missed my appointment for the palate expander installation bc I was running late from work. I have to admit, I was not that disappointed. It's funny, this is the first time that I am not anxious to get an appointment as quickly as possible. I remade it for Wednesday, but Jeff and I are going away for a long weekend on Thursday and the last thing I need is to have a piece of metal equipment across the roof of my mouth and for my teeth to be too sore to eat. So I might put it off for another week. I've waited this long, what's another couple weeks??!!

I also wanted to share that last weekend I skied for the first time!!! We went to Mammoth (which was AMAZING) and I took two days of group lessons. I was tearing it up! My body is so out of shape, so it was a workout!!

Here are some pics that show my jaw and teeth better than my self portraits;)


  1. Hello! I have just been reading orthognathic/orthodontic blogs before I get my braces next month and found yours, so wanted to stop and say hello. I've read your blog right through from the beginning, it's amazing how far you've come. All the best.


  2. Thanks so much Viktoria! I know how nerve racking this whole process is. But you are definitely starting it out right by reading blogs. I did the same thing. I read a bunch of blogs start to finish before I decided to go through with braces and surgery. It was extremely helpful to know people actually get through this happier than when they started. I'm just really happy my blog has done that for someone!

    Good luck!!
