It's Braces Day!

Today is the BIG day...the day Grace has been waiting for for so long!  Today is the day that she gets her braces!


Before braces...





During...



and with braces!



Her mouth is a little sore and she will probably only be eating mashed potatoes and mac and cheese for a few days but she is so happy that she has them.  She will have to have them for 18-24 months so we will see how she feels in about a year.

Chemo Care Tote Delivery to Clearview Cancer Institute

The kids and I delivered 40+ chemo care totes today to Clearview Cancer Institute this morning!  It was such an honor to be able to do this and we could not have done it without the support of family, friends, neighbors and people in the community.

3D Model for Braces

Grace had her teeth scanned today to make the 3D model in preparation for her braces. She's lucky she doesn't have to deal with the yucky impressions!

Typical 7th Grade Girls!

Grace's First Consult for Braces

Grace had her first consult for braces today with Dr. Durham at Durham orthodontics.  The appointment went well.  She needs to have a tooth extracted before she can get braces or she could wear this thing called a forsus orthodontic appliance but I'd rather her have the tooth extracted. So, they will make that appointment with her dentist, and she will get braces about a week after having the tooth extracted.  She is so excited and giddy about getting braces!  Who would have thought?!?
