    My pleasure. Sometimes this forum gets wrapped around "the daily drama" and we need to take a moment to soak in stories such as this one and put things in perspective.

    Wow, what an inspiration! She is amazing! Interesting what they said about horse back riding; my 79 yo mom fell off a horse in Jan and broke her pelvis in four places, and 3 mos later was back riding, at her doc's recommendation. They felt it was incredibly therapeutic for her to ride, and I guess it is helping this girl as well! GREAT STORY!
