200th post - and a little closure

While I certainly can't claim to have a blog anything as super dandy as the Kelly Blog, we've had a lot of fun over the years.

I thought that post #200 would be perfect to tell a follow-up story on our Vietnam trip.

Ryan is a persistent dude, and really wanted to find out what happened after Marley ran off the road, so he went old-school and looked up their family in the phone book.

Ryan called and found Marley's mom surprised and grateful to hear from us.   As it turns out, Marley did have several broken bones in his spine.  After being taken to Hanoi by ambulance, he was flown home, and had surgery to stabilize his spine.  He was left with only a bit of foot drop, and was told that if we hadn't treated him like a spinal injury from the beginning that he could have easily been paralyzed.

I was so relieved and thankful that Marley did so well, that was definitely one of the hardest days of my life.  I can't imagine what it was like for Marley and his family.

Thanks everyone for reading, will be posting more in the following months.

I'm relieved, and I wasn't even there. I can't imagine how you guys must feel.

Thanks for the follow up Ryan!
