Jana is still injured and on crutches. She is frustrated and bored and would rather be training. She was told today that instead of a stress fracture she has a possible torn Achilles tendon---ouch! I researched that--and it doesn't look promising. Her knee is not good either. She says that she is now bone on bone. I don't think they'll do replacement on an 18 year old!!! She is waiting to find out if they will allow her to do PTRP---Physical Therapy Rehab Program. She said it will be easier than "trying to re-enlist." (What??!!) If accepted she could be there as long as 6 months. If not she will be medically discharged. She would rather go to PTRP and at least try to heal and go back to basic!! I wrote her last week that I was sorry that she was having such a disappointing experience. In her letter today she stated that it has not been a disappointing experience except for the injury. She "likes" the army, the structure, the discipline. She said she has lived a life that she would have never had a chance to see. She also said she has stories and memories that will last a life-time. That's my girl. GI Jana, Warrior Princess!
