I just wanted to get on and write a quick update since I realize it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I have lots of pictures to post but since we as of yet do not have a new computer, I don’t have anywhere to upload and edit my pictures. So those will have to wait until we get our new computer (hopefully later this week.) We did bring our old, dead computer back with us, and took it into a computer repair shop here. Almost $100 later…. the diagnosis is that the computer is indeed melted beyond repair. Oh well! We have ordered a new desktop and are waiting for that to arrive before we have our “own” computer to use instead of borrowing from family (like I am doing now :-))
So, an update on my jaw… A week ago I had my first consultation appointment and the diagnosis from the doctor is that I do NOT need surgery, which is wonderful news. His suggestion for treatment is that they make a splint (which from what I can tell looks a lot like a retainer-type apparatus that is worn on the bottom teeth.) So, yesterday I went in and had impressions made for the splint which should be ready in a couple of weeks. After that is fitted and taken care of, I will be all done! Just have to make sure to wear the splint at night (or even during the day if my jaw is really bothering me) and that should take care of things 🙂
We are doing much better from our illnesses. The girls and I still have lingering coughs but overall are much improved from a week ago! We had a quick trip down to Oregon last week where we visited some friends and family before heading back north on Sunday. This Friday my parents will arrive for a week-long visit, and I can’t wait!
