4 years old hand xray 4-17-2009

Two years ago when the Kiddo was 4 he had his fist bone density x-ray. We lugged him to the hospital and finally convinced him to hold still long enough for a picture to be taken of his hand. He didn’t understand what we were doing, but thought the lady operating the machine was nice.

Last year right about the same time, 5 years old and mid April, he had his hand x-rayed again. Same lady, same “hold still already yet jeez” conversation. Same explanation that we were taking a picture of the bones in his hand so we could see how old THEY are compared to how old he is.

This year, like clockwork, we went in again. Six years old, mid April, another bone density x-ray. But this time we got smart, we finally realized that we could request a copy of the x-ray image! The Kiddo loves them, he thinks the picture of his 4 year old hand is so tiny and cute. I have to say I agree.

Yeah the kiddo has some medical issues, but hey if he didn’t we would get to have little x-ray pictures of his hand. How’s that for a silver lining :)

you neglected to say what the results of the xray were. Are his bones catching up to his 'age'? (and I think his four year old hand is cute too lol)
