Today, after 3 years and 3 months, Ralph’s braces came off. He’s done!

That was a long time, poor Ralph. His treatment would have been shortened by 6 mos to a year if we hadn’t moved twice while he wore them. : )

Our friend Audrey, told him to bring a banana to bite into after his ortho appointment today. She said it would feel wonderful to get a good clean bite. So he did. And he said it felt great! Do you remember the first thing you bit into post braces?

P.S. — A recent photo of Ralph with braces. Also. Here’s Maude’s de-bracing day.
