Strong bones… Day 929 01JUN11

We got the results of Joshua's DEXA scan this morning and I am happy to report that he has very strong bones. His results were between 95-98% of normal for his age group. This was a great relief for Renee and I, we have been quite concerned since he fractured his foot last month. A normal result means that we can worry about other side effects right now and let Joshua continue to be an active nine year old. Joshua was very pleased to hear the results and really liked the fact that he was a "normal" kid when it comes to his bone density. We spent the day inside mostly because we got a decent amount of rain which we have been hoping for. It let up later in the evening and we managed to get out and skate for a bit before it started back up. The rest of the evening was taken up by Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals and we all gathered in the living room to watch. Tomorrow is another day of summer vacation to enjoy and I am sure the boys will make the most of it.
