Ce-le-brate Good Times...COME ON!

The crazy and ridiculous mouth guard-thingy is...GONE!!!!!!! Hooray times a million!

Today was the big 3 week check-up at Dr. Relle's office and it couldn't have gone better! He broke out the wire cutters and freed the beast from my mouth! I can talk!!!! (not too excited, right?) In honor of such an OUTSTANDING day, I thought...it might be time to show some pics -- time to put ol' 'Wilson' to rest.

Please note...as you will see...I am still in the 'chipmunk' phase...

Dr. Relle was so proud of his work...he even took a picture of Steve and I. Ha. It was hilarious. I see him next in three weeks. I still have two rubber bands I have to rock but at this point...I can deal with anything.

I cautiously asked Relle, "Do you think it would be okay if I had a glass of wine?"
His reply, "You should have had a glass of wine a week ago!"

Not. Funny. Dude.

THERE you are!!! And nice to meet you! For 3 weeks your swelling is going away quite nicely, what's it like to finally be able to close your teeth together? Looking good, Lady :)

If this were olden days, would you have salpped the OS witha glove, challenging him to a duel for the sake of your sanity?!! Not nice! Cheers *clink*

Beautiful. All that hard work was worth it. Yeah! You really do look great. Thanks for posting all that you do. Holski and Leah are right, seeing your new "you" is encouraging to those of us on the other side. From your photos, it looks like your wicked sense of humor has helped you recover. Cheers.
