(The photos I posted were a few days after the incident. I couldn’t bring myself to take a photo before the swelling started to go down.)
Hello all 👋🏼 I had an accident where I fainted and fell Sunday 07/29. The ambulance took me to the ER and the oral surgeon pushed my teeth back into place so I could actually close my mouth and eat. I lost one tooth and the other four are dislocated with nerve damage. One canine is still merged up in the gum. The mandibular bone holding the top row of teeth together is broken. Currently I have a splint in place for a few months. The dr said it’ll take a good 6-12 months of soft food, ice and plenty of rest to heal.
As a model, I won’t be having an income for some time :( I do not have insurance so the expenses will be more than I imagined. The ambulance/ER, the foundation work, the restorative work, chiropractor for my jaw. This is one of those times I am humbling myself, allowing vulnerability and accepting help when I realize I really need it. It is quite a setback in many ways. I had many upcoming goals, but my spirituality keeps me optimistic. I feel so thankful and blessed that the repercussions were not worse and that I am healing well so far.
What I truly ask for is that the final result be even better than the original state. To come back better than before continuing to live out my daily life and dreams with confidence. I just want to get back on my feet and start again, but it will take time for the bones to heal. Any donated amount is immensely appreciated 🙏🏼 If you are unable to donate financially, I simply ask you send positive and healing energy my way. Thank you so much, blessings ✨
