    Once it's been off for a few hours, take a paperclip, unfold it, then start poking at at his toes and work your way up the leg to see if he flinches. To get an idea of the proper flinch response, try it on his good leg first. Make sense?

    If there is a fracture in the femur that's really bad news.
