Hello! Just wanted to share a quick update. July 2016 will mark my four year anniversary with upper jaw surgery. I'm glad my blog can be a resource for those of you looking for help, answers and support. I am doing well! My jaw hasn't shifted, my teeth are still properly aligned and I can bite into an apple like a champ. This surgery was and forever will be one of the best decisions I could have made. It is a scary process, it can be a difficult healing process, but I am fully convinced that your attitude and support system will get you through this. Having a proper bite is one of those things that you take for granted when you don't have problems with it. People don't realize that jaws are misaligned. I remember how awkward I felt having to saw up a piece of pizza or a sandwich or whatever. I remember being frightened by what I saw in the mirror quite honestly. I knew that I had to fix it. So I found the best team of doctors I could, I got my head right, and as my husband said to me on the way to surgery "you're at the deep end, all you have to do now is jump". So I jumped and I survived and you will too. And it will be worth it. Wishing you all peace on your jaw journeys!
