Update 10-4-09

Hi all,

After the remarkable progress of the last six weeks, Dan had a rough couple of days this week.  He had a fairly severe reaction to a new pain medication and also developed an infection in his left leg that necessitated re-opening what had been a closed and healing wound.  He'll go back into surgery tomorrow (Monday) morning, and we understand that there's a 50-50 chance that the surgeons will close the leg back up, which would be great.  On the brighter side, Dan's left arm continues to make progress and will also get a touch up during the surgery.

A reporter named Hal Bernton from the Seattle Times is currently embedded with and reporting on Dan's company (Bravo Company, 1-17 Infantry Battalion) in the Arghandab River valley.  This article http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2009990698_usafghanvillage03.html references Dan about halfway through and notes that two of the company's platoons are operating at 80% and 60% strength, respectively, due to deaths and injuries.  All of the articles from the series can be read here:  http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/afghanjournal/
