A month after the bombing, Mery Daniel dressed for an interview with CNN, helped by her cousin. “She wore a huge smile and no one could tell that her bandages were still oozing,” recalls Bonnie St. John.
Before losing her left leg, Mery Daniel loved spin classes. At the Spaulding Rehabilitation Center in Boston, she tries the hand cycle for the first time.
After leaving the hospital, Mery Daniel could not navigate the stairs to her second-floor walk-up. Living in a hotel room temporarily, she visits with her husband and daughter.
