I'm very nervous about having jaw surgery on Tuesday. Very nervous. The last time I had surgery was when they put tubes in my ears. I was four. Needless to say, I don't remember a whole lot of it. I probably also wasn't quite the control freak then that I am now. I learned that they are putting plates, STEEL PLATES, in my mouth. Sure, I know they'll be really small and won't even set off metal detectors, but still. STEEL PLATES. PLURAL. I'll be in surgery for five hours. FIVE HOURS. I will have to spend MULTIPLE NIGHTS in the hospital. I've never stayed in a hospital before! I'll be on a liquid diet for TWO WEEKS. I can't eat chips for SIX MONTHS. So yeah, freaking out a little. T-minus 6 days and counting.
