4 months post op

I can't believe I just wrote 4 months post op in my title post. I kept counting over and over and didn't want to believe that its been nearly 4 months already since having my surgery. Plus, I noticed I haven't updated this since May. I'm terrible at keeping up with these and I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this before. Not much has changed since the surgery minus the fact I've been back to eating a normal diet. I've seen my surgeon about 3 times and I'll see her again next week just to make sure everything is still healing correctly. Which is has =)
I've also been seeing my orthodontist every 3 weeks since the surgery. Not to many adjustments had to be done after the surgery. I needed a tooth on my upper jaw to be slightly shifted because it was crooked and he straightened the back lower teeth to line up better with the top teeth. I've also been wearing rubberbands on my back four molars to keep my new bite tight and help it adjust. The rubber bands I have to wear 24/7 minus to eat and brush my teeth. I've become so accustomed to them that I don't even know I'm wearing them anymore. Now onto the greatest news. I was just at my orthodontist on Thursday afternoon and he said next time I come in my braces will be coming off. That's right. They are are already coming off. So on July 29th at 9:15am my new bite and smile will be complete. Can it be next week already or what!?!?!

Oh and for all of you to see. Here's a picture side by side of my old bite to my almost new bite.
