Thanksgiving Update

Prior to Dan’s surgery last week the docs told us it was a “minor procedure.”  Everyone in the family thinks he/she speaks M.D. these days, but a little something was lost in translation this time--we understood “minor” to mean “minor,” but it turns out it meant something more akin to “you almost certainly won’t die in surgery, but you’re going to feel like crap afterwards.”  All of which has proven true, and led Dan to have to spend most of the past week back in bed.  By yesterday he was feeling a little better though, and so we eased into what turned out to be great Thanksgiving dinner.

Dan made it to physical therapy for the first time in a week this morning, so here are a couple videos of a MATC workout.  They’re admittedly a little lame, so watch at your own peril.

While flipping through the post-Thanksgiving dinner football games on TV yesterday, our family was a little surprised to see Oprah doing her show from the MATC.  If you want to see a more professional view of the facility, you can check out the show here: Oprah on Location at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
Finally, Dan was invited up to West Point to watch President Obama’s speech on Afghanistan on Tuesday, so we’ll be driving up there early next week.


  1. That's awesome that you get to go do that Dan! My sister, Rachael, is a cow there! And a cheerleader - I will tell her to watch out for you! You are always in my thoughts and prayers :)

  2. Dan - I won't be on the Ward this week but I have great news for you. Tell your Mom I found not one but THREE. We'll catch up when you get back to the Ward. Hope you enjoy the trip!

  3. Dan-Couldn't believe our eyes when we saw you on TV tonight. We think of you often. Take Care, COL and Mrs. B

  4. The new star!

    Dan I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw you on TV last night. Ryan called last night and we joked about you being the new "poster boy" of wounded soldiers. They couldn't have picked a more handsome guy!
