Here are the new xrays. Side and front. Isn't it interesting to see all the bones in my leg? You can see why dogs walk on the "tips of their fingers" as the humans would say. And, what seems to be our knees are really our wrists. The front view makes it seem I got two new breaks in my bone where the screws went in. But, Dr. Staatz says my bone is all healed up, so the black shadows by the screws must just be xray artifacts. It's quite amazing to Alice xrays can be downloaded to CDs to carry around instead of dealing with floppy films which get covered in fingerprints and are often very expensive to reproduce. She had some dental xrays taken last week without film, instead direct to her dentist's computer screen. Wave of the future. Goodbye xray films.
