  •  jaw surgery at 18 (5+ / 0-)

    the surgery entailed reducing length of mandible, moving maxilla forward and widening it with artificial bone. 15 hours is how long they told me it took. The absolute worst of it was waking up in SICU when the surgeon pulled out the nasal trumpets, assured himself I had an airway, then stuffed them back in. If I'd been able to scream past the wired-shut mouth, I most certainly would have.

    Anyone who scoffs at happiness needs to take their soul back to the factory and demand a better one. -driftglass
