Today was Riley’s golden birthday and his present he shared with all of us was a trip to Denver and ultimately Craig Hospital 15 days after his injury. Maria called a bit ago sounding exhausted and said that all went well , also that he has had a steady stream of visitors at his side today which was better than cake.

The facility at Craig sounds fantastic from the brief description Maria gave me. Riley is tired and still needs rest but this trip today was the moment we have been waiting for and the next step on his road to recovery. Happy birthday buddy.
