Oh wow. I'm so sorry Rosie. Youa re in my thoughts and prayers, and your lil bundle of joy. You said he had 3 old rib fractures? That can mean actually a couple things... did they say how old they were? Is it in time frame of when you were gone? Just askng because, sometimes, its very rare, but one can actually have repeated breaks and fractures due to a disease or auto immune defiency. Paget disease, cancers, low calcium, dental deformities, delayed formation of teeth, defects in the teeth structure, reduction in bone mass, arthritis (hey its rare, but some kids have it), osteoporis (sp?), tumors, abuse (let's hope not huni). Try to get the doctors to find the timelines, and do blood work so you can get a bettter idea of why this happened. Keep us posted huni.
