It's still a little scary looking at the x-rays, but they sure look a hell of a lot
better than a year ago.  It's amazing to see how the bone has bulked up, 
which is apparently it's way of making up for residual internal weakness 
from the slow-healing fractures.  Also, it is apparent that the bulking-up of 
the bone has occurred right where the bone grafts were placed.  Thank 
goodness for bone grafts, and the surgeons who know how to use them.
