The doctor just told me that the x-rays are clear now, that he couldn’t even find a hairline fracture. He might not admit saying it, General, but the doctor told me yesterday that Henry’s ribs were broken when he first examined him, and he had no explanation as to why there’s no evidence on the most recent x-rays of the ribs ever having been broken.
