Makes Me Sad a Little

So I was at Dr.Misleh's today getting the grill detailed and after I was done, Dr. Misleh, myself, and Miko, my technician, were chatting about my surgery and Miko pointed out something a little astonishing to me. My incisors have little ridges on them called mamelons. They are completely normal and come with adult teeth when you get them. The odd thing is for someone my age to have them. Why? Because my teeth have never ground against each other in the front. And so, after surgery, they will soon finally disappear.

Goodbye, Little Mamelons. Goodbye.

What Can I Say

Things are slow. Patience is key. Since October every ortho appointment feels the same. I go in, sit down, get a new wire, get up, six weeks. I do have some news though.
After some pondering over a calendar here's what I figure: even if I'm "ready for surgery" by my February appointment, It'll be another month or so to get my surgical hooks on, then another month to get an appointment with The Chainsaw, then another month to get a hospital date. I don't think I'll be in until May or so.

In the meantime, I accepted an invite to a hockey tourney in Colorado at the end of April.

To fold that back into the purpose of this blog, I'm starting my weight gaining regiment again.

Sorry if it sounds like I'm losing steam here, I just don't like posting unless I have something to say you know?
