by the numbers

Days until surgery: 40! (tomorrow will be 39!!!)
Days until my half marathon: 37
Days until the husband is home: 25 (ish).
Days until school is out: 18 (actual school days, not including weekends)
Number of migraines in the last two weeks: 8
Miles in my race last weekend: 7.5
Days until my next orthodontist appointment: 5
Performances/Concerts/Field Trips in the past two weeks: 5

I have to say, I am quite jealous of all of the swollen lips, puffed up faces, sawed-apart jawbones, and perfect bites of the past few weeks. I am SO happy for everyone, especially Kate and Aimee and Aimee (ananda devika)... it seems like we all started orthoblogging around the same time, and now they're all "fixed"! But tomorrow that countdown clock rolls on into the 30s, which I can't complain about. I'll follow you guys to the 'other side' soon enough!

I still haven't called my benefits coordinator about what exactly is covered. I'll do it next week. Somehow it's fallen off of the radar with all of the relief still goin' on. :)

Katherine (Kate) said...

Haha! I understand you a BAZILLION times over but now have the benefit of saying, careful what you wish for!!! Just joking, It really is amazing to see how fast this is coming up for you, especially when you put it in that kind of timeframe... and of course the clincher "PRICELSSS" will underline the whole deal!

WOW! So your hubby IS going to make it back in time then?!?! That has got to be a relief! (I know you have amazing friends, but hubby is pretty irreplacable no?)
So thankful everything is falling into place for you Steph, and can't wait to be admiring your sawed-up, puffed out face, heehee :) *xoxo*
