Katja has been at Air Force Basic Training for almost 2 weeks now.
Wednesday when she woke up, she found both of her knees were swollen to
about double their normal size. She had to be moved to the infirmary where
they have been running tests on her. She has been diagnosed with patella
"something" syndrome - she can't remember the second word <g>. In any
event, she has some problem with the tendons around her knees, and they are
trying to decide if this is something that can be "fixed" through moderate
physical therapy, or if she needs to come home. She will be in physical
therapy for a few days beginning tomorrow, and then I guess the physical
therapist will make the decision as to whether or not she continues with
therapy there, or has to be discharged and come home!
