early release for good behavior

#1 Post by PARR »

!8-24 months was the original estimate. Went in today for an adjustment, got new powerchains, new elastics, was told to put the headgear away for good (was only at night for the past few months and only the lower arch), then the ortho stuck his pliers in my mouth and did some bends--HMG did that hurt!!!, and said "back in 6 weeks for a check up and any final tweeking before we take 'em off." That will be 3 months early! (Chef will not be a happy camper to be alone.)

chef will be perfectly happy not to have you flicking your bracket scum all over the bathroom mirror. However, the first full mouth bite of a crisp apple better not be in front of me! (or I'll ask Gov. Palin to send me moose kidneys to stew up fer ya!)
