The waiting game

It's been a while! Honestly, I've had nothing of interest to post in the last few months. I feel like I'm stuck in a holding pattern.
December - We put an e-link (similar to a powerchain) on top to squish everything together and hold it in place. We also tweaked the bottom wire.
January - We took the e-link off, and also everything else that was causing movement. The plan was to wait a month, and if nothing shifted significantly, we could take the braces off.
February - We noticed that the gap - yes that pesky gap - had opened up again on the top. So the e-link was put back on (ouch) to close everything back up.
March - I have an appointment this coming Tuesday, and everything will be taken off again. We'll wait another month, to see if anything moves, and if not, it's bye, bye braces! (Even if "the gap" opens up again, my otho is done trying to fix it. He offered to put a little bonding material on one of the teeth, and call it a day. Sounds like a plan to me!)
Wish me luck!
