Posted on September 13, 2013Thanks to everyone who was able to attend the benefit for Danielle this past weekend! It was a great turn out and so much fun! We are so happy that Danielle was able to come to the event. She enjoyed seeing each and every one of you and is overwhelmed by your generosity!! Danielle has a new "caring bridge" site which will be updated with details on her progress and it's also a great place to leave her a message. Just search "caring bridge" and enter "Danielle Gotchey" on the home page. It will direct you to her personal page. We would like to ask for your continued prayers and for your help in sharing Danielle's story. Though she is progressing at great strides, she still has a long way to go and your love and prayers help more than you'll ever know. Danielle continues to wear her beautiful smile, even under the most difficult of days and still amazes us with her positive and hopeful attitude. We are eternally grateful for everything you have done for Danielle and the entire Gotchey family. Please know that you are all in our prayers daily. We thank God for all of you and the blessings He has given us. Love, thanks and prayers!!!

Posted on September 2, 2013Danielle continues to amaze us with her strength, both physically and mentally. She had the pins removed from her right hand which will allow her to begin use of her dominant hand. Her physical therapy continues and her schedule is grueling. This being said, she is still full of smiles and always asking how everyone else is..in true Danielle spirit :) Please keep her in your prayers and share this link with your friends and family. If you happen to be in Denver the 7th of September "The Dawghouse" is hosting a benefit for Danielle from 3 - 7 pm. It would be great to be able to thank you all in person! We continue to pray for each and every one of you. Love, blessings and thanks!!

Posted on August 25, 2013Danielle was cleared by her Doctors last week to attend "hobie day" where they took all the able patients to cherry creek reservoir to ride pontoons, hobies and jet boats. Danielle was cleared to ride the pontoon only. She enjoyed getting out of the hospital. Since the pontoon ride she has struggled with dizziness, nausea and low blood pressure, and of course reality. Danielle rides the muscle stimulation bike 3 times a week. For the first time she used a machine to get her into a standing position. Her goal was 45% and she made it to 50%! She was very dizzy and nauseated but she did it!! Her therapy is more and more intense and is now up to 5 hours a day. Along with the physical therapy, she is going through neurological testing. She is, as you might expect, exhausted and sore. However, her joyful attitude and sweet spirit continues to amaze us!! Her battle is just beginning so please pray for her and share our prayer request with your friends and families. The outpouring of love and support from all of you continues to overwhelm and humble us, words cannot express our thanks! Love and blessings to you all!!
