Day 31 - 4 Week Post-Op Video

First smiling photo! I still look so goofy, but at least I can FINALLY smile!

    Thanks for the video. It's more "real" and easier to relate to a moving, talking version of you. It definitely gives more perspective on your healing up to this point.

    P.S. Awesome smile!
    P.P.S. OMG I love your hedgehog! So adorable! I've always wanted one.

    Thanks for the video, like Nora said it really is helpful to see you moving and talking...although I don't think I'll ever be brave enough to make a video, I'll be too embarrassed and hate seeing myself on videos! You can see that things are still a little stiff but I would say that's the only evidence of any surgery, apart from that you look perfectly normal..and absolutely gorgeous! You know you said about your mouth being crooked, do you think that's just because of the swelling around your mouth and that it will go down? Glad to see Pineapple making an appearance, she's so cute! And I wish I could get my hair to look that nice when I curl it!

    Hi Dani!
    Thanks for the update! The video blogs really help to put your improvement into perspective! I think you look great and I am glad that the numbness keeps going away!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Hey!!! I can't watch your video just yet because I am at work, but your pics look super fantastic! LOOK AT THAT SMILE!!!!!! It looks so nice! You look normal again, girl! Your lips looks good! You can tell in your profile shot that you are still a little swollen. I think once that last bit goes down, you are going to be really happy with your chin. I think it is going to be super cute, not super big! Today was the first day I woke and didn't feel incredibly swollen so I think things are looking up!

    Thanks for your kind words of support. I will try to be patient, but I am not very good at it. Your video was so helpful and your hedgehog is so sweet. I go to see my OS on Monday, and maybe I will get my stent out; it is very large and covers a good bit of my top teeth. We will see... I also go back to work on Monday, so it will be a big day. Have a good weekend. Do something fun.

    Hi dani! Does your mouth still go crooked when talking? Im only 10 days post op so I know I'm being impatient but my lip moved super crooked when I talk and I was wondering when did that go away for you?
