On the afternoon of September the 2nd, Nikeela had won two races and was in the lead for another when the unthinkable happened.  Her mount summersaulted, obliterating her spine leaving her paralyzed from the ribs down.  She also suffered secondary injuries ranging from facial lacerations to a collapsed lung.  It is amazing she survived.

Challenge and adversity have always been a part of Nikeela's life and have forged her into the person we all know and love.  She now faces her greatest challenge yet; the process of relearning how to perform tasks that were once second nature.  The road to recovery will be long and demanding, filled with physical and emotional difficulties.
 
Today, Nikeela's spirit remains as strong as ever.  It is a true joy to see her familiar spunk and wit emerging again.  With the recent events, we have all been reminded how drastically life can change in an instant. 

We are asking for contributions from those who have been touched or inspired by Nikeela. This fund will be dedicated to the construction of a living space that will eliminate some of the impediments that will be confronting her on a daily basis.  She is tough, she's got this, she's a surviver.  This fund is about creating a space for her to thrive as she takes on this fresh challenge.

Craig Hospital day three update today was my first weekend day at Craig. It was nice to have some down time and relax after such a busy couple of weeks. I also got moved into a private room today which was super exciting.
I'm looking forward to Monday with a focused game plan on rehab and preparing and every way possible for this next phase of my life. I can't say enough good things about the stuff here at Craig, they are have been most informative and encouraging through this process! My sister and Lee have finished their first level of testing and were cleared to take me outside to explore the grounds. It felt wonderful to sit in the garden and enjoy the plants and sunshine. As always, thank you for the continued thoughts and prayers. I hope you enjoy the photos!

Just wanted to update everyone. I transferred to Craig Hospital and Denver Colorado yesterday to begin my rehab. This feels like my first day of school; I don't really know what to expect yet and there are a lot of tests! I enjoyed meeting with my doctor yesterday and her team and have complete confidence in her ability to guide me through the next phase of my recovery. There has already been talk of adaptive saddles and getting me back on a horse. I'm excited already! I wanted to thank you all again for your support and to let you know that some of the donations were you used to purchase supplies for my time here at Craig. I felt completely spoiled and it removed some stress from my life. Please send thoughts of strength and perseverance as I begin my therapy, (eight hours a day). I can not thank you all enough. I am blessed.

Today was another great day for the books. I was able to do some great PT work including being able to transfer from my bed into a wheelchair for the first time and I took a little tour of the wing including spending some time out on the terrace overlooking the city. I continue to be impressed with the level of care and compassion everyone shows and enjoy reading all of your comments and texts, as well as the phone calls and visits. It sounds like Craig Hospital from Colorado will be coming to do an assessment for rehab on Monday. I am hopeful to get accepted into their program and transfer there next week. My heart has been touched by the generosity shown by all. As always, thank you for your prayers and thoughts!
