Rushton got a full set of braces and a permanent upper expander this week, and the poor kid has been pretty miserable. It all aches, the brackets are cutting up the inside of his cheeks, and he can’t find anything to eat except yogurt, smoothies, and ice cream. Lucky for him, we missed our first cranking-of-the-expander tonight because he fell asleep at 7pm totally done with the day. It’s going to be a looooong 6 weeks (of the expander and cranking torture).
