Dani Kloos's Journal
Written Jun 9, 2013 9:30pmI am so glad that Kris updated on Dani's appointment in St. Cloud this past Friday and i can update a bit more on Jesse's surgery, on his leg this past Friday also. He was able to have the surgery as an out patient at the Alexandria Surgery Center. Dr. Nelson told us that he had alot of scar tissue and inflammation which was giving him alot of pain and decreased mobility in his leg. During surgery which took alot longer than they had anticipated and having him sedated., Dr. Nelson was able to move his leg to 120 degrees, i know Jesse was hoping to have it better than that, but with the help of a machine that he has at home will help him with the range of motion, and hopefully it will get better. He is to use the machine as much as possible, he is having a hard time with it right now because he has a tight bandage on from surgery yet but that will come off tomorrow. He really has no other limitations from the surgery and should be able to get back to work soon, he is not having alot of pain but says that it feels sore. Not sure how many people are still looking at this site, but we will continue to update if things change, right now we just want Dani and Jesse to continue to move forward in the right direction.

Written Jun 9, 2013 2:58pmDani went to see her surgeon on Friday for a post visit.It had been three months. He was impressed with her progress!! All x-rays showed great healing in all her bones.He suggests continued therapy on her hand and to add more range of motion therapy for her right foot. She has been diligent in doing her therapy and he wants her to keep up the good work. With time it should continue to heal and improve! She returns in 6 months!
I think Naomi will update more about Jesse's surgery that he had Friday am. He is doing well, he will be using a machine to help him with his range of motion , so he will be continuing therapy too. They removed scar tissue to aid in healing and flexibility. He was resting and sore today Dani said. They are both determined to do what they can to improve!!
Written May 29, 2013 7:53pmHi everyone, its been a long time since anything was posted on this site. All has recently been stable with Jesse and Dani, but today Jesse went back to see his surgeon., Dr. Nelson and because Jesse continues to have alot of pain in his leg and he is at the point where Physical Therapy is not doing anymore for him right now, that more surgery on his leg is needed. Dr. Nelson feels that he needs to go in with a scope and try to remove some of the scar tissue that has developed since the injury, and he is hopeful that by the time the wedding comes that he will have recuperated from this surgery, not what we really wanted to hear but if that is going to help lessen his pain and make him be more mobile then thats what is needed. I know Dani has an upcoming appointment in St. Cloud to check her progress so we can update more on that later. We hope and pray that they both will be able to put this all in the past and move on with their future and lifetime together. Jesse will have his surgery next friday and at this point is not sure if it will be an in or outpatient. Thanks again to all of you for your love and support. Naomi
