So....no surprise here....after battling with the rubber bands...
Sooooo I got a little frustrated...and....WHOOPS!....the surgical hook (used to loop the band)...popped out.
I'm going to blame it on the poor installation job on the hook...you know..instead of admitting to my own lack of patience, extreme frustration, sheer irritation, etc.
So, I gotta get to the ortho. Perhaps this was my backwards way of hoping for some ortho-lovin'. Being that my check-up isn't even till next week. I can't wait any longer!
