Awww...shucks! I had a whole long post and it deleted on me. :'( BUMMER!!

ANYWAY...I know i haven't posted here in AGES, but life has a funny way of getting carried away with itself. LOL. But, I had to come by and let you all know....I FINALLY GOT A DATE FOR WHEN THESE THINGS ARE COMING OFF!!! YAAAY!!! I went into my last appt. and she told me she was going to deband me soon! I was really happy to hear that, but figured it'd be Feb. or March. So when she said "we'll try to get them off before the holidays" I was SHOCKED!!! I said "WOW! I don't mind waiting 'til the new year if you can't fit me in." So...she went to make my appointments for me and when I got to the front desk, they gave me my appointments -- Dec. 14 I'll be having a mold taken for my upper retainer (she's going to do a bonded retainer on bottom) and Jan 8 is when they ALL come off*!! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!!! I can't believe it's FINALLY happening!!! I can't remember a time when I DIDN'T have these things on!!! everyone, hang in there! There IS an end to the tunnel!! (I've had these for 2 years and 4 months now. By the time they come off, it'll almost be 2.5 years...which is within her estimate when I first startd (24-30 mos).

I promise to come back and post photos when they're finally off.

*She's trying to close some spaces on the bottom, which is probably also why she pushed out my debanding a little bit. She can make sure things are progressing between now and 12/14...and then more action between 12/14 and 1/8.

Congrats :) I'm probably looking at 2.5 years myself. My gaps are finally closing on the top and after that it shouldn't be long.
