I have finally been in contact with all three members of the team today and I am feeling relieved. Scared and still upset, but there is a sense of intense relief from knowing that they haven’t forgotten about me.

Dr .  has two trauma patients he is taking care of so I understand he can’t get back to me right away. Those people are priority, absolutely.

That’s all I needed to hear. I understand and I can wait!!

Dr. Mac turns out, is in the hospital with his flu-infection thing. I understand that too, and again, I can wait, especially because it sounds like he’s very sick! Boooo 😦

It comes down to this:

Give me a response. Let me know that I am not forgotten.

I understand things happen, I really do, but how am I supposed to know this is all happening if you don’t tell me?

  1. Hi Ashley,

    I read your blog and I am so sorry to hear about everything you’re going through. I’m actually contemplating whether or not I should get upper jaw surgery as I have an underbite. My orthodontist told me I’d wear braces 6 months before the surgery and 6 months after… but I feel like it’s going to be longer. Plus I am in college, which is making me even more nervous about this whole thing. Honestly, I don’t really mind the surgery part I just cannot stand the thought of braces. I wish they could use invisilign but they said that wouldn’t work. Ah I don’t know what to do! I’d love to hear your input as you sound like an incredibly modest, sensible, and awesome person!

    1. Hi Taylor,
      Just saw your posting! Thanks so much for the kind words of wisdom.
      I went through the EXACT same thing as you, begging for invisalign, inner braces, even taking our ALL MY TEETH. The braces were the worst part of this whole procedure. They kept me up at night and made my life seem that much harder.
      Just know, in the end it’s what you have to do. You have no choice if you want to get better 🙂
      It WILL get better and it’s only a year you have to wear them! I had to wear them for longer but today a year seems like nothing.

  2. Please update us on how you are! I don’t have much to say, but I hope that you are okay, and I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am that I stumbled across this blog while researching orthognatic surgery.
