10 Months Post op

Hello readers!!

It's been a crazy summer and I've been slacking in the blogging and youtubing department.
I did do a youtube update not that long ago and I will do a retainer one soon.
My bite has been good and has pretty much stayed the same. I've been wearing my retainers nightly for the most part. The only time I didn't wear them consistently was when I was at the hospital overnight with my grandmother.

My last post was on the way back from Montreal and everything sort of got crazy after that. A couple days later my grandmother fell ill and was hospitalized in critical care. I was closer to my grandmother than most people are so when she's not well I don't leave her side. She was at the hospital for 9 days in which I pretty much was there all the time, around the clock. She started to improve on July 6th and we had a lot of hope that maybe she would someday be well enough to be moved to a different ward and eventually recover. The following day she went down hill really fast and that was the last day I got to spend with her. Planning the funeral that week was chaos with the amounts of flooding and the storms in Toronto. We had a power outage so I got very little sleep working around the clock to have everything sorted out. The funeral turned out to be beautiful and I think it honoured her life well.
I miss her every single day.

Some days everything that has happened these last few months just overwhelms me so most of the time I try not to think too much. My life has forever changed in so many ways that sometimes I don't recognize it at all.

At the same time I feel blessed to have the amazing people that I do have in my life. Hoping for lots of good from here on out. I really hope all your wonderful people are doing well. I miss your stories and I've going to try to catch up on everyones blog.



  1. I'm so sorry to read about your grandmother. I'm glad you got to spend so much time with her in her final days. Sending love.

  2. So sorry for the your loss..... Your Grandmother was very lucky and blessed to have her loving Granddaughter by her side. That is one of the greatest gifts you can give someone.

  3. Hi Terra, just a quick note.

    There is a blogger called Berenice who's blog called and I am nearly certain it is a fake. There are no photos of 'before and after' and every paragraph is trying to sell something via a link.

    Can you have a little look and if you agree with me can you post a warning to other bloggers out there to flag it out as fake. People who abuse blogs and target vulnerable people going through recovery should be ashamed of themselves. It's disgusting.

    Anyway, hope you're well chick - you look fab as usual x

  4. I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother. That must have been so unbelievably hard to go through. You are such a strong person and she will be with you always!
