Sorry about that Chris. What I was going to ask , before my fat fingers hit the wrong key was.
What type of wall board did you stick the tiles back to? If it was just greenboard then you probably set the tile back onto a surface that still has movement in it . Any movement at all will cause the grout to crack. Odds are if you had loose tile the wall has been wet at some point. Tap on the tile with your knucle and if it sounds like there is some vibration then there are more loose tiles other than the ones that fell off. An educated guess would be that you will have to remove more tiles and wallboard, replace the wallboard and set new tile . If you have more question give me a shout.
