Very happy Toni is doing well. Hope she will be able to visit everyone at camp this year.

BTW, Bruce will be there.

Toni West

Postby Bill Bauknecht » Fri Feb 09, 2007 2:17 pm

To all of you wondering how Toni West has been, she has doing pretty good. She and her family sold her home and she is now in a really beautiful condo at the Brookside Golf Club in Bourne. She had a short stay in the hospital last week, picked up a bug and was very sick. She seems to be doing better now. She still gets some therapy but I doubt that she will ever be able to drive again. I have my kids and grandkids to my house for some karate lessons and when Toni can attend, she really enjoys the classes. I am working on her left side,,the doctors told her the brain/left side connection in all probability, will never connect again. I don't believe that and have found some improvement, just in working the san chin thrust with her. When I get back, we will continue THAT therapy. I'll keep you all posted.

Van, I will be calling up to the Cape in the next couple days. Toni will be so glad to hear your good wishes. I am also able to check with her son and another close friend, just to monitor how she is doing. Also, my kids check in with her regularly. Thanks for your caring.
