Week 5 - I can eat!!

I have been the worst blogger ever. I've been so busy because I'm moving tomorrow! I can't believe it!

Yesterday I went to the surgeon's office for my last appointment there in a while and I got the ok to start chewing! Very exciting! After the appointment, my mom and I went shopping and I ate a blueberry muffin! I had to pick it apart in tiny bits but it really wasn't that weird to eat it. Then, my family and I went out to dinner to celebrate me being able to eat again! We went to a tapas restaurant and I got scallops and then this delicious dish with avocado and crab and shrimp. I'm definitely going to eat a lot of avocados, they were so easy to eat.

This afternoon, I'm going to my orthodontist's office for the first time since my surgery. I don't really know what they are going to do besides take X-rays, but I really hope they take off my surgical hooks and give my a little indication of how much longer I'll need braces.

Here's some current photos! I'll post more in a little. I've been working on a list of jaw surgery tips and advice but I'm not finished with it yet so I'll post that later.

I can finally move my face

  1. I remember when I got the ok to eat food again. It was the best day ever! Glad you are recovering well! Even though I'm months post surgery, I'm still recovering. It's a long process. I like reading your blog. Keep us posted!
