First Ronan had xrays done and then we went up to the appointment with the pediatric ortho. The ortho came in and looked Ronan over- moved his legs around, and Ronan was smiling the whole time. Then we went to a different room to look at the xrays together- and he pointed out a healing crack/hairline fracture in the right femur. So, looks like the other ortho did actually break his leg, but at least it didn't need a cast and is healing well! The specialist said it looks good, just be even more careful than usual (don't know if that's even possible!) for a bit as its still healing. We have a follow up in 6 months (and hopefully we won't need to see him sooner!) to re-xray both femurs to check the bowing/ angulation. Besides this current crack in the femur there was evidence of a previous (in utero) fracture that healed angulated. This can be okay as the bones have time to grow and remodel, but the angle is somewhat severe (45-50 degrees) where 45 and below may require rodding down the road. He hopes this isn't the case as Ronan is little and his bones have time to change, but he wants to follow up to watch it just in case. We REALLY hope he doesn't need rodding, but if it is what he'd need to live a more "normal" lifestyle, we would of course do it. Here is information about rodding: http://oi-child.tripod.com/id1.html but this says if the angle is at least 30 degrees, so that's good. This is sort of what his femur looks like- the picture on the left: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.hawaii.edu/medicine/pediatrics/pemxray/v6c02a.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.hawaii.edu/medicine/pediatrics/pemxray/v6c02.html&usg=__3yxZS5_BKV3uIDIqQnUyfHNQzF8=&h=661&w=567&sz=19&hl=en&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=dfC98LC2s2nK3M:&tbnh=124&tbnw=123&ei=Z5CwTeOqOMbDgQf0xY2PDA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dangulated%2Bfemur%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox%26rlz%3D1I7TSNA_enUS375US375%26biw%3D1230%26bih%3D533%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=702&page=1&ndsp=21&ved=1t:429,r:20,s:0&tx=30&ty=49 Although this seems like it could be somewhat bad news, its great that Ronan is moving the leg more and doesn't really seem to be in pain!
