"St. Francis West"?????????  I wonder about the notations on the x-ray.  It's the easiest thing in the world to fix an x-ray that's going to be used as a prop in a network show.  Why did they over-look this detail?

Wow, that IS odd.  Because I thought the date wasn't on the original x-ray from the other week.  And now they have one with all the info??

Plus.. St. Francis... that's where Tom Brennan worked!!!

My belief is that they don't make as many prop errors as we think they do.  We'll find out eventually....

the date is more confusing than the hospital name, don't you think? :-\

Hmm... I thought for sure the St Francis thing would be a connection, but then I recently was informed that St. Francis is also a hospital in Oahu.  So it might be prop error after all, like they did with Charlotte Malkin's autopsy report (Queens Hospital in Honolulu notes).   :-\

It's looking that way Pandora - never mind - another error slipped through the net

that makes WAY more sense than trying to force a connection.

Thanks for the follow up.

Thought maybe the date was a hint at the statement "time moves differently on the island" maybe it is just a prop error

I agree, but if the x-rays were supposed to be only 5 days old, why would they say St. Francis?  Weren't we led to believe that Juliet took them on the island?

I know us Lost Fans have a tendancy to over analyse the show but TPTB know that so it always surprises me when errors happen - they are only human though.

Maybe sometimes we write things off too quickly as errors when they are actually clues but I guess only time will tell on this one.

I'm no good at working out timelines and stuff so here it is for all of you.

My next question is where did this come from exactly in the show. I do not remember seeing this x-ray.

My point is, if it came from some pictures off of abc is it another picture that did not appear in the show, like the lady in the window and the girl in the room with Jack? Just looking for confirmation
