    Thanks everyone, and Zu Zu how cool that you gave him his own jingle tune.. Bingles let's hope he stops needing them soon.

    So... Here is the miracle. Or not, but I prefer to "believe"

    The original radiographs showed a HUGE fracture bed, that could be seen on all views to some degree or another. It was very obvious, you couldnt miss it. So the question was, is it displaced or incomplete? Either way, it went through the growth plate . So it was assumed it would require a surgical repair for any decent prognosis BUT the prognosis for a good recovery was guarded due to the damage to the growth plate.

    Surgery estimates between $2500 - $3500.

    Monday night I took him to the specialty hospital. Tuesday morning they sedated him and took further xrays. They called and told me that they could not find the fracture bed on any view, even if they stressed the joint. All they could find was a giant hematoma.

    So they have no explanation other than that the fracture bed must have been an artifact.. On every view. On digital rads of excellent quality. Huh.

    There is more detail to the injury but I wanted to share this and thank everyone who thought good things and jingled for this little guy, because it really is nothing short of miraculous that a clearly defined fracture bed could disappear.

    Yay! I'll take a miracle anyday!

    And Baxter. AHEM. If you kill your mommy because you have stressed her out with midnight trips to the emergency hospital one too many times, there will be no one to sneak you bites of snausage or other treats. Just something to think about little man, you might want to go easy on her for a while.
    Michael: Seems the people who burned me want me for a job.
    Sam: A job? Does it pay?
    Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
    Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

    Baxter, if you keep mistreating your mommy by trying to kill her with heart attacks, Hoover and I ARE going to send her a plane ticket and swipe her from you!

    With a nod to Zu Zu, BINGLING and jingling for Baxter.
