So, that is it. Technically my last (non) adjustment and in 13 days, I come back to get debanded. I really did feel so many things at once walking out of the office. Part of me wanted to cry, another part of me was anxious, another part excited. I know this will be worse at the debanding appointment. Who knows, maybe I'll get to see my full results and feel more excited about it, but I am sure there will be some tears. Probably happy tears, but there will be some tears. We'll cross that bridge when we get to it in a few weeks.
On a totally different topic-- I went out of town to work an airshow with the weather service. Super awesome opportunity as an aviation enthusiast and outreach person for my office, but I was also dreading the talking and my jaw. This was going to be the first outreach event I've done since surgery, and it's a HUGE one. I seriously non stop talked for 4 days straight, and I definitely felt it. I packed heat packs to bring with me. I also brought wine and vicodin, but luckily I just needed heat packs and lots of advil. I wasn't in a ton of pain, but just general soreness and mostly stiffness. Like I had to keep stretching and massaging throughout the day. I probably looked like an idiot doing it, but oh well. While I was in Wisconsin for this show, I happen to run in to a long time online jaw surgery friend. It's so awesome when we get to meet up and put faces to these online names we've gotten to know!
That's that for the next 13 days. My next update I will be brace free!!!!!!!!
