Finally out of those danged crossbite elastics! Ortho said my crossbite was gone and now time to work on my overbite. Got a new chain (blue this time) and Class II elastics. Will be getting my lingual arch out next appointment and replaced with regular brackets. 19 months in.

Week and a half into the elastics & they appear to be working. Midline is still off but I think my ortho is fixing my overbite first.

Got an adjustment last week. Got my lingual arch out on bottom. Also getting a reprieve from rubber bands. Already developing a gap between my bottom front teeth, and still have a stubborn gap between my canine and lateral on one side on top.

Bad news: back in crossbite bands. Ugly news: now in power chains top and bottom; had some nice gaps on bottom that are now going to get closed. Good news: ortho says he's expecting only four more months! Don't have a firm debrace date yet but light at the end of the tunnel is a very good thing.
