    Tracy,  again thanks for the update,  the clarity and honesty with which all of you write is remakable and so appreciated.  You are all in our thoughts and prayers continually.  You are a remarkable family and have done so well with these extremely difficult circumstances.  I am sure moment to moment you wonder about it. Just keep being you and you will survive it all with the grace and dignity you show every week.  Big hugs.  Melinda Doster

    Given the seriousness of the injury, this seems like remarkable progress we are all thrilled to read about!!  All the selfless support from family I am sure was key to his improving condition to date.  I'll look forward to the date he is back to 100% and believe Dan has what it takes to get there!!  Kind regards,  Tom

    I haven't seen Dan since high school, and even then we never spoke, weren't friends, but I remember him.  I'm happy that he is recovering so well!  When I get the chance, I will do more than offer kind words of support, even though it will be a small help.  I wish him and his family, wife, and kids, and also friends well.  Just know that one more person out there is thinking about you all and sending you warm wishes and thoughts.

    Ugh!  That lovely nauseousness is bad enough on it's own without injuries. It's great that Dan wants to toss a ball.  It sounds like his brain is waking up and wants stimulating activities to do.

    He seems to be making wonderful progress.  It is really miraculous and seems to be coming along so fast.   I hope they will find him some pain meds which don't make him sick so he can eat however.  Shouldn't be too hard to do.  I had the same problem after my recent surgery.   They probably don't want to give him phenergan but another antiemetic drug might help and I was able to take narco for pain w/o getting sick.  Bet they have that solved by now as it sounds like a wonderful hospital.  Again thanks for all your posts.  You all are super writers and some day Dan will be amazed at what all of you and he have been through together.   He is really blessed.

    Is there any wisdom to moving Dan closest to the very best specialists in the medical fields where he needs the most help?  From a previous accident with a skier in Oregon, we looked back and wished we had sent him to the nerve specialist is San Francisco rather than those at the Portland Hospital, but I am sure you have taken all this into account already.  Most importantly, it is great to hear Dan's recovery in the last few day has been extraordinary!!

    Talking and remembering he was in Mexico plus the signs of rational thought are all steps we thought Dan would get past but hearing of it coming so quickly after relative consciousness is great news. Although there maybe a significant possibility we're not out of the woods yet, this news today has me even more optimistic that we'll see a full recovery!!  Way to bounce back Dan!  TK

    Praise God!  So many people are praying for Dan and all of you.  I know God is hearing us!  We will continue to pray daily for continued improvement and a full recovery.
