Finally my appt day has come!

Very short visit today--some good news, some bad news. Bad news: I still have to wear the elastics. Good news: I got the go-ahead to book my appt with my surgeon for a consult. The ortho said that everything looked great and we should be right on point by the time I see my surgeon. I did call today to make an appt w/ my surgeon and as it turns out, I won't be able to see him till April 17th. He is a very busy man and it sucks. Oh and I also caught wind of him leaving in July. My ortho was the one who told me--he thought maybe I knew...not so much. WIth that said, I think I may take a vacation. It's been a while since I've been back home in Cali. I'll spend my one year mark there, hopefully. I do hope that maybe my ortho can pull some strings to get me in the surgeon's office sooner. That would be nice, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

I'll let you guys know if anything comes up. Hasta luego!

Still wearing those darn elastics. It’s become a whole lot easier on my tongue…I’ve even been doubling them up. Still feel like the molars are moving, so that’s a good sign. My ortho appt is coming up on Wednesday, so I’ll post then if there is any change in plan. Enjoy!

Miss Smiley:
My wire is clipped to allow my molars to level back out after over correction by ortho. My OS requested this so he can perform the 3 piece Lefort.

Your teeth look great!!! I am still amazed everytime I see your criss-cross elastics. :shock: Have you had to replenish your bags of elastics yet? :lol:

Hey Rebelda!

Happy One Year anniversary! Your teeth are looking awesome!

I am exactly 2 months to the day behind you :) . I have a surgery date of June 4 (bsso + genioplasty), and I would imagine you will be ready, too, once you get in to see the OS---just a matter of getting his attention and scheduling---let us know!!!!

Sweet! It's always nice to have a brace buddy...especially one that is getting surgery too! Congrats to you on your surgery date. I imagine my surgery date should be in May or June since my OS is leaving in either June or July. *Fingers crossed* :-#)

OS eval today:

My OS had molds taken again to see where I am at. He did say that he is indeed trying to fit me in before he leaves the office in June. I have and appointment for May 1st--let's hope those molds hold good news. I am very excited; I am thinking he will have a date for me in 2 wks time. Very good day, indeed! :D

Andantae: I won't have an answer till Friday--hopefully. May could be the month! *Fingers crossed* I actually got my ZNS bags yesterday...I'm starting to get a little nervous and anxious at the same time.
