Feeling Peas and Happiness

I have my frozen peas for recovery (and yes, I did put them next to my cheeks at the grocery store to test)...

jaw surgery...here I come! Bring it!

A big medical day today. Funny though, every day seems this way.

I'm feeling pretty good at this moment. And yes, it does have something to do with the last glass of wine enjoyed. Just don't tell the pros it was Woodbridge -- not really a great way to go out (hell yeah $4.99 a bottle) but...hey, I didn't want to waste the remains of the weekend bottle, riiiight?

So, today I went in for my pre-op at the general doctor's office.

Things I didn't appreciated....
Doctor: My niece just got braces. Gosh, I hope she never has to have jaw surgery...like you.
WL: Thanks. Um...can I get an itemized receipt for this?

The pre-op was not quite as extensive as I had hoped. The usual -- blood pressure, then (big shock here)...more blood! I mean, seriously, how much more blood do they need to test? I think I'm legit at this point. I am breathing and yes, I have blood that flows through my body.

The crazy, get-my-shit-together-before-I-leave-work-for-three-weeks, work day ended with a call from the oral surgeon himself. I felt so honored. Not only did he explain all is ready and in place (I believe his exact words were "I expect to have for us a very nice bite") he also...gave me his secret, special cell phone number. I feel like Brad Pitt asked me out on a date. I was so touched.

My surgery time got moved from 7:30 AM to 10 AM. Which is fine with me...although, I will have to change the countdown clock. Apparently, some other dude's gotta get in there real quick and he/she's not stayin' over night (like me) to enjoy the 'amenities.'

Is it Saturday yet? At this point...just get me to the knife! I'm ready! My freezer is full of frozen peas for face! What more could I need?!

I hope you keep you humor after the surgery-it gets me through this! I am excited for you to have your surgery so soon. I am a tad jealous though, I have had my braces for almost 14 months and still not surgery ready. Just wondering when that day will come.
