Dani Kloos's Journal
Making great progress!
Written May 5, 2013 3:48pmHave not written for awhile, the kids are doing well. They both continue to improve and still need to do therapy. It has been an incredibly long road. So happy to write that each and everyday there is improvement. Jesse is back to work full time and goes to the YMCA to work on his therapy. Dani still goes to hand therapy three times a week and continues her therapy everyday at home.! Both are walking so much better and have more stamina all the time. Dani returns to see the Doctor in St. Cloud on June 7th. With all the snow days I did not think we would be out of school by then. Our last day is the 5th!! So looking forward to taking her and seeing what he has to say!! We thank you for your continued prayers!! The Streed"s and Kloos'

Written Apr 14, 2013 8:49pmEven though its mid April, it certainly did not feel like it today. Hope everyone stayed safe and warm today. With the way the weather has been, it can only get better. Jesse continues to do his therapy and goes to the YMCA as much as he can, he tells me that he even shot some free throws the other day but said it did not go very well. He continues to have alot of pain in his leg and will see Dr. Nelson in a few weeks to determine if more surgery will be needed. He wears the knee device also and then can get by without the use of a crutch. He is working 30 hrs. a week now and in a couple of weeks will hopefully be able to increase it to a full 40 hrs. Dani continues with her therapies, both at home and the hospital, she says that her right arm/hand are getting some better so we are very thankful for that. She has even driven a few times when the weather was nicer, so that was another milestone that she has reached, and we are so grateful for them. Like the saying goes, take one day at a time. Thanks all for you continued prayers and support. Naomi
Written Apr 1, 2013 7:40pmI was so glad to see that Kris updated you yesterday with the surprise that they got from Jesse and Dani, so glad that they were able to get there also, and Dani could see her grandmother who she had not seen since before the accident. We were so blessed to have Jesse and Dani with us for the Easter week-end and it was so nice that they could get time to spend with Dani's family also. They both have come so far and it was so good to have them come home again, i was not sure how the steps were going to go but with the help of one crutch apiece they did just fine. They were able to see alot of family and friends while they were home, and i have had alot of people who seen them come up to me and say that they can tell how much determination that they both have and what they have overcome, and i could not agree more. Their is still alot of therapy for both of them but its a day at a time. Hope everyone had a great Easter Holiday and thanks to all for the continued prayers, it helps us all so much. Naomi
