In earlier X-rays I questioned what appeared to be extra holes, and I
wondered if they accidentally drilled the holes in the wrong place.  Dr.
Mitchell reminded me that the X-rays are a 3-D image - they show both
sides of the bone, so with each set of holes you see both the entry and
the exit hole.  So, there aren't any extra holes.
