-#### Discarding Initial State {#discard-initial}
+#### Discarding Keys and Packet State {#discarding-packets}
+When packet protection keys are discarded (see Section 4.9 of {{QUIC-TLS}}),
+recovery state for all in-flight packets sent with those keys is discarded.
+The packets are removed from the count of bytes in flight and no
+acknowledgements or loss events will occur for those packets.  Note that it
+is expected that keys are discarded after those packets would be declared lost,
+but Initial secrets are destroyed earlier.
