I am doing much better. I am hoping to be going home, to Katie's, my daugther, within the next two to three weeks. I will then have about 8-12 months of outpatient physical therapy at the Palo Alto VA Hospital. After I am done with that I am hoping they will release me to start riding again. :) I miss the horses so much. Most of all I miss not having been able to compete on Valentina this year. Please keep us all posted on how you and Ace do on the 8th of August. Oh, and as soon as I get to Katie's I'll be able to get your cool neck tie done. I already have the material just waiting to get to a sewing machine. They would not let me have one at the hospital. Let Jennifer know I have the material for her's too. Take care hugs to you and Ace.
