All is well

I am so blessed. My boy AJ is OK. We will wait and see with the lump on his rib. It doesn't look like anything that needs immediate attention. The ribs grow along the front side of the rib where they go from solidified bone to cartilage. The lump is directly on that growth plate which is not terribly uncommon when kids like AJ hit a spurt. It's just taking his bones a little longer to catch up.

His back is more complicated. He doesn't qualify for a dx of scoliosis since the curves in his spine are not severe enough. However he does have an issue with his spine that needs attention. PT and exercise for the next 3 months and then a recheck.

I feel blessed
