Danny van Schaik's Journal
Written Jan 17, 2014 7:43pm by Justin van SchaikDischarged from the hospital with a new-and-improved painkiller ("methodone"). That's right: Danny is taking meth. Now the rehab starts ... and it's not going to be easy.
If it turns out to be successful, the surgery will prevent total collapse of the distal femur on both legs (which would necessitate replacement) ... but it won't reduce his daily pain. Hell, it might make it worse. This was all just a "preventative action" to allow Danny to someday run again. For now, we just want him to walk.

His counts are still low and he's still vulnerable to infection, but he's also resting comfortably in his own bed. We expect him to regain his strength (such as it is) over the next week or so, but will keep him home from school just in case. Thank you for the prayers and support!
