Final Verdict

Well, the final verdict is in.

SuperSoldier does, in fact, have a hip fracture.  It is fairly significant.  He has had it since the beginning of June!

The doc he was seeing told him, “well, I’m going to have to pull you from class,” to which SuperSoldier replied, “WHAT!!!????”  The doc then reconsidered.  He asked him what he got on his last PT test (a 290.  300 is “Max”.)  He put him on profile (of course) but is not pulling him from class.  He is allowed to go to the FTX with some extra guidelines and should not push (or be pushed) beyond them and he should graduate on time.

He will probably still be flagged for deployment (and therefore, quite likely, orders) but at least he can get down to the business of healing.  Finally.

Thanks be to God for a proper diagnosis and a treatment plan that meets all of SuperSoldier’s needs… the need to graduate and the need to heal.

    Wow! You have yourself a tough boy. Praying for SuperSoldier’s recovery, Ft. Bragg [edited to change this to Fort Hood… that’s our area!] assignment, and your whole family (as you had kindly asked).

  2. Therese says:

    so glad you know what it is. Continued prayers for SuperSoldier.

  3. Cathy says:

    Poor guy! Hope he recovers quickly now. And you know I’m praying really hard for him to come here! (both of them actually)

  4. KC says:

    Ouch! You would think it would not be difficult to rule out a hip fracture. Sheesh! I’m glad they finally figured it out.

    Praying for a good assignment (Hood).

    • I think it may have had something to do with the location of the fracture. They just didn’t see anything in the xray. To his doc’s credit (the SECOND one supersoldier saw) he was persistent in finding the cause of the pain and sent him for a scan, which revealed the fracture. The first guy told him he was being a wimp and shouldn’t be a soldier! [slightly paraphrased, but not much!]
