Kacie's First Day of Braces
September 16th, 2002 was an interesting day for Kacie. It all started
Monday morning. Kacie and Keri left the house at nine o'clock. The
main adventure of the day was an appointment with the orthodontist in downtown
Redmond. Oddly enough, Kacie was extremely excited for her visit. She
could barely sleep the previous night. Once she arrived at the
office, Dr. Victor
Johansen went right to work. Keri says Kacie was humming her favorite
songs as the orthodontist busily worked away. In just a little over
an hour, Kacie was sporting a new look. Here she is
picture below just after school on her first day with braces. She is all
smiles. When I asked her if anybody at school called her brace face, she
grinned and replied, "No, but metal mouth". She gets to wear them for two years.
She wasn't so excited later in the evening when her jaw began to ache.
