On a bad note, I got a call from the surgeon's office that the company making my joint replacements(TMJ Concepts) had contacted them and said that there is no possible way that my replacements would be done by my surgery date on June 24th. It is frustrating that the CT scan was sent off about 10 weeks before the scheduled day thinking that would be plenty of time. They said mid July would be the soonest that they will be done. I'm really frustrated that we have scheduled our entire summer around this surgery date and now we are getting pushed back another month. There is nothing that I can do about it though so I'm trying not to get down about it. I'd rather the joint replacements be done perfectly than to have them rushing to get them done in time.
My new surgery date is July 26th and is still at Northwest Medical Center in Springdale. On the bright side, I will get to have my cake and eat it too on my 30th birthday. I would have been wired shut if surgery was still happening in June.I'm trying to stay positive about everything and enjoy being able to eat real food a little longer.
