Not a good day...

Hi there,
i hope some are having a better day then me. I had my exrays done finally on two and half hours sleep. Iwas in so much pain this morning and last night. I also found out my son has something like this:

crack in the bony ring of the spinal column is called spondylolysis. If the crack occurs on both sides of the bony ring, the spine is free to slip forward, a condition called spondylolisthesis. So far there is no definitive cause of spondylolysis. Most physicians agree that the bone defect appears in children mainly due to sports activities that put repeated stress on the pars interarticularis. The spondylolysis appears in younger and older adults as the result of excessive stresses on the spine, eventually causing a stress fracture.(Thanks god only one side)

They are sending him to have a bone scan done and this i guess will tell if i believe will heal or what? I did not like the specialist, something about his manner like he didnt like to explain things. I will sometime after some sleep get a report on this to understand better and timmorrow i will call and see if i can get my exray report. I tell you when it rains it pours!
Take care, monkey
