I still have pain, but I have to stay away from narcotics - I do not deal well with them. I stay fairy comfortable with Tramadol. A Physical Therapist comes in twice a week, and that's helping a lot.

Saratoga is dicey. I can not walk without the assistance of someone/something. It hurts my heart to think about it.

The photos and stories about the DAN boys brought a broad smile to my face. I always thought Wise Dan to be a big horse, but in some of those shots, he's dwarfed by his brother.

I'm grateful to all the doctors, nurses, technicians who cared for me, and I', especially grateful for al the concern and good wishes sent by members of TBC and my FB page. It helps A LOT. Thank you all so much.


It's wonderful to hear from you, Bal!!! Hang in there, things will improve with time, it's just a very slow process, especially in the beginning.

I'm glad you're home. I hope the rest of your recovery goes well, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you'll be able to go to Saratoga. I always enjoys your posts and photos from there.

I'm so glad to hear you are on the mend Bal! You have a long time before Saratoga, worry now about getting stronger every day. I have faith you'll make it there. Prayers and positive healing thoughts for a speedy recovery!!
