Zachary has multiple fractures in his ankle and foot.
He needs a cast for at least six weeks. usually more with low bone desity.

The problem with a cast is that imobilizing his leg that has complex regional pain syndrome will worsen the complex regional pain syndrom. If I don't cast him he could heal wrong or do more damage to his bones.

Back to the hospital first things this morning. Looks like many vists are in my near future.

We see the dentist and then an orthopedic surgeon.

We went in early for blood test last week and the tests had to be sent out so it really wasn't as helpful as I thought it would be.
the results will most likely get us referred to an endocrinologist. One was consulted already, to help order the appropriate tests.

This is adding two more doctors to the five I see consitently already. Not to mention the fear of fragility fractures. This requires a change in lifestyle. Your ankle is one thing but the spine is not ........well..... I am not going to spell it out .....everyone knock on wood right now.
