Just got a call from Jana. She is definitely coming home. I guess we should have known her knee wouldn't survive miles of running and marching. At 16 she underwent microfracture resurfacing of the knee. She spent 4 months nonweight bearing and had to learn to walk again. She was diagnosed with Osteochondritis Dissecans back then. I remember researching it then, but I had hoped she would be okay for a while. Her ortho told her more knee surgery was in her future. She talked him into signing the military forms. She finally saw the army doctor today. And the condition has spread throughout the knee. He told her she needs to get back to her Ortho as soon as she gets home. Her insurance under my plan runs out on Nov. 1---unless she is enrolled in school fulltime. She will be home in 2 to 4 weeks.
