Dani Kloos's Journal

Written Mar 14, 2013 10:05pmI talked with Jesse this evening and he seems to be feeling better, he must have had some type of bug thats going around. He had an appointment with Dr. Nelson today and he does not have to go back to see him for 8 wks., so he must obviously feel that Jesse is making good progress, he is waiting for a device to come that will help strengthen his muscles in his leg, he did get one but it was not the right one. Its suppose to be the same device that Adrian Peterson used so its got to be good- right? We were so thrilled when Jesse told us that Dani ditched her walker and is using just the one crutch to walk, and she did it just before her birthday on St. Patty's day and before the anniversary of their engagement one year ago on March 16, we have so much to celebrate and be thankful for over these past 4 months, a person never knows when they will have a life changing experience and we have all been challenged with this. Jesse and Dani have come so far and i really think the end of the healing process is now in sight. We are so proud of all that they have overcome. Thanks to all of you who continue to look at this site and post messages, we all appreciate it very much. Naomi
Written Mar 14, 2013 7:37pmA lot of gain from last week! Missed seeing Dani over the weekend because of our lovely weather again! Went ot visit yesterday after school and Dani greeted me with good news! She is NOT using the walker for support she is using one crutch and walking on both feet!!! So happy to see her moving with much more ease! So excited! Her muscles are still weak but improving each day!
She was fitted for her JAS system and was doing that when I got there. It will work great in stretching and helping to strengthen her wrist. Foot therapy is going well too she said.She is working hard. Jesse was not feeling 100% so we left him to rest. He has been working so hard too! hoping he feels better today!
So when we went to the mall we used a wheel chair so she would not wear out right away. It was her first shopping trip since the accident ! It was fun to get out! We had a great evening together..so happy to have to stand on my toes to give her a hug...while she is on her own TWO FEET!!! :)
Written Mar 6, 2013 7:37pmThe plan is to have a hell of a bonfire someday where we burn all the boots, and braces and such that both Dani and Jesse have had to wear!
We can not wait, it will be a fun way to ceremoniously celebrate all they have overcome..
Believe me ~ no one else will want to reuse them!! :)
