Sinus Infections suck!

I started feeling like crap the beginning of last week. I started pushing the vitamin C and drinking lots. By Friday I was exhausted, and by Monday I couldn't believe how sick I was. I really thought it was just a bad cold I had a horrible cough which isn't common for me. So, I went to the doctors yesterday morning and was given an antibiotic for a sinus infection. I can't believe how much better I feel today. It obviously wasn't just viral like I had originally though. Thank goodness I went to the doctors, last night my back molars were hurting me so bad I couldn't stand it. It's weird how all of that is connected. What a difference 24 hours makes. I'm certainly not 100% but, I'm well on my way!
How's everyone else feeling these days? It is so cold out today! Come on spring!!

My daughters debracing date is coming up in 13 days. I'm really happy for her, but so envious too! I can't wait to have no metal in my mouth. What a wonderful feeling that will be!!

What do you think??

My adjustment today was pretty minor. I still have to wear 1 elastic and he did a few minor tweaks.
I asked Kelly the Tech. if she had any idea how much longer. She left to ask Dr. Post and we agreed that if it was a long time she wouldn't share it with me. When she came back though, she was smiling. Dr. Post says at this point we are month to month. He'll do the little things he needs to and we'll just wait and see how cooperative my teeth are.
My daughter Kate has a debracing date of February 19th. I'm so excited for her! That will also be my next adjustment.
What do you think of my progress?

It's me...can you believe it?!?!

Wow, has it been a long time. Sorry.
I'm not really sure what happened myself but, the whole surgery thing consumed me. I think I was so worked up about being wired. Mentally, I was really trying to prepare myself for it and then BAM… it was cancelled. Don't get me wrong, I love the way my teeth are coming along. They look better than I ever thought they would. I still feel like I smile weird. It's just not "me". Whatever that is anymore. I still go and get my adjustments every month and never once have I asked about a debracing date. I would love to know, but I don't want to get my hopes up. I'm such a black and white person that when something gets told to me, it's hard for me to sway from that. Maybe that's why I've had such a hard time with this whole process. Nothing seems to ever be set in stone.
I don't regret for a minute that I did it though. When all of this metal finally comes out of my mouth, I'm sure I'll love my new look.
I've been trying to catch up on everyone's blogs. You are all very amazing people. I will try very hard not to disappear again.
I have an adjustment today. I'll post again after that and maybe add a long overdue photo.
I've missed you guys!!!
