This morning in the emergency room across the corridor from my Mom’s room, a doctor called up a young man’s X-ray on the computer display and explained to him that the X-ray image showed bullet fragments, but the X-ray image couldn’t distinguish between his old bullet fragments and the new bullet fragments. She told him he would have to let his primary physician compare the new X-ray to old X-rays.
Later I got to see my Mom’s X-rays. They didn’t show any bullet fragments, but my Mom has problems of her own. She’ll be in the hospital for a while as doctors sort out exactly what is going on.
I may or may not be doing posts the next few days.
