Ok, so for those of you who are gangsterly-challenged, here is the C3PO translation of my previous post:

. . .

Greetings my dear and fellow orthoists. It is with great pleasure that I announce my return after many a fortnight without post. I do take great pride in this publication vehicle and also great pleasure in sharing it with all of you. In particular I would like to thank Mrs Shanton for giving me a nudge. And so what follows herein will constitute my latest news and should be interpreted as such.

I begin by reporting that the last 7 weeks have been dreadfully slow, and I should very much appreciate speeding this process with all due haste, and nothwithstanding any amount of patience I may have left. It should be noted however that despite my disdain, the situation promises to improve considerably in the coming weeks in the month of May. The most notable event will be the bonding of my upper laterals into their proper form and size. I pray that his will make a considerable difference, especially cosmetically.

As exhibited in the photographs below of week 0 through 7, the spaces between my first and second upper teeth have increased considerably. This is, however, expected since the removal of the power chain at my last appointment. Despite their function and temporary employment, I do find them troubling; a regression as it were. Also shown is the remaining amount of crowding in my lower incisors. I do fear that they haven't so much as budged in all this time. I am curious to know if a power chain may assist them along.

The good news is that on the 2nd of May at 9 o'clock in the morning, my beloved orthodontist will remove the brackets on each of the top two laterals and follow by afixing a bypass wire so as to allow room for my dentist to complete the bonding procedure. It should be noted that the process will occur over several appointments and weeks, at the end of which I anticipate my spirits rising upon inspection of the final result.

. . .

Pretty acurate translation for a robot with no teeth, eh? Who knew C3PO could speak gangster!

No word on a surgery date yet either. I called at the beginning of April and they said that the summer hospital time hadn't been booked yet so they really couldn't tell me anything other than I would get 4 to 6 weeks notice. I think the end of May will be the absolute earliest I might hear something but I am not counting on it.
