Two weeks from tomorrow morning I will be heading into the operating room for my double jaw surgery. Time has flown since I first put the braces on and I can’t wait to be on the road to recovery. It is getting so real! I am feeling a mix of emotions. I’m a giant combination of excited, anxious, and extremely nervous.
I only have 7 days left with my first class and that is the bittersweet part of all this. Due to snow days I will be missing the last five days of school. I have a lot to get done between now and the 31st when I fly out to Santa Barbara. I’m sure it will be done in the blink of an eye. I’ve been looking up a lot of quotes about change and overcoming obstacles to help me somewhat mentally prepare for the upcoming months. Here is a favorite:
I keep thinking about how great it will feel to finally have a bite that fits together and a jaw that doesn’t continually feel worn out. I know that the outcome will be well worth it and extraordinary 🙂
