Surgery finally a go!

It's only taken a little over a year but I finally have a date for my jaw surgery.  I have what the doctor's think is fibrous growths bilaterally in my jaws which are causing havoc with my titanium jaw joints.  I have been in a lot of pain and on medication during this entire process.  The surgery will be to remove the fibroids,  as well as to determine if any of the screws have come loose. I can hear squeaking in my jaws when I chew.  If the screws have come loose and can't be tightened they'll have to remove the joints, wire my mouth shut and have custom made joints constructed for me.  That is a minimum of a six week process.  I'm praying it's just fibroids.  In the mean time I have one more appointment for pre-op testing and then off to the real deal.  By the way, the surgery will be done in Oklahoma City, over 100 miles away because there aren't any qualified surgeons in network with my insurance company any closer to home.  A bit of an inconvenience when it comes to pre and post-op appointments.

In the meantime I'll continue working on my book (I don't have to talk to write the book) and getting closer to finishing my manuscript and having it ready for proofreading, editing and finally going to print.  In a previous post I have given you a glimpse into the book by posting my rough draft of the prologue and a link to where you can become a part of this process.  I come on bended knee pleading for support on my project.  Any support, regardless of the amount, is greatly appreciated.  Here's the link again to make it even easier for you,  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1596973182/jeremiahs-journey-a-book-on-an-autistic-boys-journ
