Day 185 - SIX MONTHS - Before and Afters

6 months later. amazing.   I don't really have much to say other than the left side of my chin still isn't back to normal and I've come to the conclusion that its going to be this way for the rest of my life.   I'll keep you posted though because I'm sure tons of you are checking back regularly wondering "I wonder what Rebecca's chin is feeling like today!!!!"  Yeah. Anyway.  My orthodontist still has me wearing annoying rubberbands - currently on my very back molars to pull the top and bottom ones closer together.  Its amazing how many things my orthodontist finds that are wrong with my mouth.  Its incredible really.  I figure, hey, I can chew food, I can talk okay, and my smile is pretty normal - what more could a girl ask for, so please take these braces off!   SOOOO on to much more exciting things....likeeeeee BEFORE AND AFTER XRAYS! woohooo  Its actually kind of embarrassing that I'm posting these now because they were taken back in September and i had prints made of the them even - but i don't have a decent scanner and its taken me this long to call my surgeon's office and have them emailed to me.  Who knows how long it will be before I get around to getting the actually photos of my face.  While you're checking back on the status of my chin, you can see whether i've gotten them yet.

incredible, right??????  

You can see the shape of my face changed kind of dramatically

As you can see, my mouth is quite bionic at this point.  Pretty sure there's about a million screws in there.  I'm just a little nervous for the next time I have to go through an airport thanks to all these new regulations....  Anyway... I'm planning on a new post or new in the semi-near future, so don't give up on my blog yet! :)
