I went to the orthodontist today. The last appointment they took molds of my teeth to help figure out a better time frame for my upcoming jaw surgery. Today, more x-rays and pictures. The original estimate was braces for 9-12 months. ( months would be December 7th. Personally, I was hoping early January. Enough time to "bulk up" before the surgery, and then head in to the new year wired shut. January is a dreary, cold month and I'll be honest, if I'm going to have to be miserable and not go to work, January would be the time. There would be other pluses about that time frame. The boy would be home from college so he could help out around the house or with the kid after school. Oh well.
It looks like it will be more like March. If it has to be March, I'd like it to be on the early side or maybe after St. Patrick's Day. I suppose in the end, it will be what it will be.
