June 22nd, Carol
Lynn took a bad fall walking in her beloved hills. She broke bones in
her right foot, broke her left elbow, and broke her left hip. Soon
after surgery, she was transferred to a rehabilitation center. She is
doing satisfactorily, but recovery will be an extended process.
you would like, you are invited to send encouraging emails (she will
have a computer soon). Her email address is:
firstname.lastname@example.org. However, you probably will
not be hearing back from her.
friends have asked what they can do and have begun a fund to help offset
incidental medical and other expenses (something like the price of
taking her out to dinner or a movie). Carol Lynn said she would rather
have your good wishes and prayers than cash. However, since I am her
big brother and because I am in charge of the website and getting out
the newsletter, I am doing it my way.
July 10 Update.
Carol Lynn is doing well at the rehabilitation center. Friday she
went back to the hospital to have staples removed and was told she is
doing very well. She is in good spirits. The planned date
for her to come home is Friday, July 15th. Friends and family have
projects going to fix up the house to accommodate her and to spruce up
the house and yard to welcome her back home.
