This piece of news on Yahoo today:

Quote:
LAS VEGAS - Illusionist Roy Horn made a slow, unassisted stroll into a Las Vegas theater, taking another step in his recovery from a near-fatal tiger mauling 23 months ago.

Horn "methodically" walked about 100 yards into the Thursday evening performance of "Avenue Q" at the Wynn Las Vegas resort, said Bernie Yuman, longtime manager of the "Siegfried & Roy" show.

Horn, 60, has been walking without the aid of a rolling walker after months of six- to eight-hour days in physical rehabilitation, Yuman said. His injuries included a damaged neck artery and a crushed windpipe.

Horn has made other public appearances in recent months. He was accompanied Thursday by his partner, Siegfried Fischbacher, and casino mogul Steve Wynn.

Horn was partially paralyzed when a 380-pound white tiger attacked him and dragged him by the neck during a live performance of the "Siegfried & Roy" show at The Mirage resort in Las Vegas.

Yuman said Friday that Horn and some friends were preparing to mark Horn's 61st birthday on Oct. 3 — the second anniversary of the attack. He declined to provide details.

"We're going to continue to celebrate his birthday and his life," Yuman said, emphasizing the inspirational elements of Horn overcoming adversity.

"We look forward to Oct. 3 as we always have, but now it has new meaning," he said.

Yours Magically,
