Almost The Profile

It's 3 in the morning, and I can't sleep. Just going through old photos and archiving them onto an external storage drive. The photo on the left was taken in January 2004. The photo on th right was taken days after the surgery. These are almost exactly three years apart. I almost never take shots of my profile - every one of them was a rude awakening of the jaw alignment problem, so I avoided them.

I should mention that tonight I had my first post-op cocktail, a vodka martini. Couldn't enjoy the olives.... but it was a brave step towards feeling normal again. :)

Hi Kristen....
I absolutely love the new you. I think it makes you look younger! Kim

Kristen said...

Thanks Kim! :) It must be the rounded and swollen cheeks. Hehe.

Hi Kristen,
I found your blog last night as I was trawling the net in a fit of 'what have I started...' . I haven't read all of it yet, but I'm looking forward to it as I am sure it's going to help me through my own adventure!
So thank you for that.
And, as swollen as you may still be, you do look very pretty.
