The Knee Bone's Connected to the Leg Bone

My almost-fifteen-year-old daughter, Savannah had surgery on her knee last May. She has a fairly rare joint disorder called osteochondritis dissecans. Basically, a piece of her femur was peeling away. The doctor went in, drilled up into her bone so it would bleed down into this piece that had peeled away because of a loss of bloodflow, and he put some screws in it. It took a long time to heal, but she finally got the green light for sports in October, at which point the xray showed that the fragment of bone had adhered and was healing well.

Wow - that's an awesome story! Isn't it great to see how God works in your life? I am so touched by your doctor doing this for your family. I'll be praying for Savannah to recover from her surgery quickly and that it heals correctly this time.

That is such a wonderful story, I know that was a big relief to know that he will help you out. Most doctors "guarantee" their surgery for a year anyway so maybe that is the case. Either way, God works in so many wonderful ways, and you seem to be protected by him. Glad to hear it will be covered. I'd help you move if I lived in FL.

That made me tear up! I'm so glad he did that for you. I wish I could give you a big hug, because I know you need it.
