Welcome to my CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Two weeks ago I seriously dislocated my right knee and fractured my tibial plateau while skiing a GS course at Mammoth Mt.,  CA. I tore, tweaked, and maddened all the  ligaments in that knee. I’ve been immobile, non-weight bearing, and going stir crazy as I ice and elevate. 

Poor Nurse Bruce!  He has been an angel picking up after me, helping me change my clothes, washing my clothes, helping me change the ice, feeding me, .... As you know, I am not a very patient person and abhor inactivity. Bruce describes me as a “hummingbird in a shoe box.”  I am praying for patience. It sounds like I will have multiple, staged, surgeries at some future, undetermined time. It looks like I won’t walk for a while and won’t bike this summer. There’s no skiing next season for me, either):

Last time I had a life-changing event was when I was run over on my mt. bike, on September 9, 2012, racing in the Fall Classic, in Breckenride, CO, just prior to buying my home in the North 40 and moving to Aspen.  I know that I would not have met Bruce, the Love of my Life, if this accident had not occurred. That being said, I wonder what magnificent event or great lesson I will gain from this wreck?!&$#@? Thank you for being my friends and caring. I love you! 💕💕💕
