Journal entry by David Manser

Well, for those of you keeping track, it has been more than a day since my promised update. I apologize for not writing this sooner but honestly we got busy and I forgot.

Anyway, Auni's recovery is going very well.  She was in the hospital for two weeks after surgery and then we got to come home.  She is almost 6 weeks since surgery now and will get to start putting a little weight on her leg in the next couple of days with physical therapy as she strengthens her muscles and learns to walk.  Follow up trips to the doctors for various scans and routine physical therapy  is taking up Aunicka's days unless she is hanging out with friends or her horse.

The next step though will be rapidly upon us. We will be heading to Denver in the next few days to plan the next treatment steps for Aunicka and the simulation mapping phase of her radiation therapy.  We will come back home for a week and then Laura and Aunicka will be in Denver for 5-6 weeks for radiation therapy. The outpatient therapy is daily, 5 day a week, for 5-6 weeks.  She will also be continuing her physical therapy there. Fortunately Laura has some family in the Denver area which will make the entire process go easier.

Thank you all for your kind and supportive words, and prayers. It means so much to all of us.
