It's just one day over two weeks and I'm feeling great! I'm just so happy that I was able to get this surgery. I'm so blessed to have such wonderful parents who saved so we could afford it. A big shout out to my mom who has been nothing less than wonderful, even when I was being awful because I felt so crappy. She saw me through those hard days and for that I am so grateful.

It's worth it friends. If you are feeling apprehensive, asking yourself 'Do I really need this?' Don't give up making this change!

Now things I'm looking forward to:

The swelling going down 100%
Getting the splint out
Having zero discomfort
Being able to chew and eat me some Chicken Enchiladas (my favorite!)
Being able to go out to a restaurant without worrying about how and what I'm going to eat
Going out with friends and not worrying about needing to get home and rest
Not spending 25% of my day cleaning and brushing my teeth
Not feeling anxious anymore (the surgery has caused me some anxiety....I have like one anxiety attack a day....they aren't that bad but enough for it to be annoying.


  1. YES! It is so worth it! and moms are the best! Seriously, thank God for my rents.

    Oh, and I am with you on the list- right now the splint is driving me SO crazy. AH.


  2. Hi Sarah!
    What a wonderful post! I do always need the encouragement becuase I think I question myself about going through this procedure at least a thousand times a day! UG..
    Back to look great, and I hope that anxiety goes away NOW!!!
    Have a wonderful night!

  3. Are you SURE you only had surgery 2 weeks ago?? Seriously, you look fantastic. I'm so glad to hear you're doing well!
    I saw in one of your earlier posts that you were worried about not being able to close your lips. I wasn't able to until about 7 weeks out. So it's very annoying, but normal, don't worry.
    Keep up the good attitude! That really helps :)
