Colleen Fanning Colleen Crashed!

First post: Apr 30, 2022
Hey friends & family… I had a crazy bike-car crash. Here’s a summary.


- crash Sun 4.10 7:30pm in front of the old Kroger on Guilford
- surgery on 2 shattered patellas and a broken wrist Mon 4.11
- recovery at St. Vincent
- acute rehab at Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana Sat 4.16
- returning home to my condo Friday 4.22 after great progress


- no driving for several months
- will be wearing leg immobilizers (zero knee bending) for 5 more weeks, mobility limited
- fairly significant pain levels
- lots of physical therapy needed
- recovery expected to be 4-6 months before functioning at a basic level (driving, more normal mobility, etc)


- Saint Rosemary (my amazing mom) will be spending nights and helping me get started in the mornings until I’m safe to be alone
- A couple friends and colleagues will be regularly working from my condo to help out
- I’m hoping friends who would like to visit can fill in the gaps
- I’ll post weekly visitation windows here; please sign up to visit when convenient


- visitation / company
- future rides to appointments, etc
- potential household tasks (blowing leaves off patio or taking garbage out, doing dishes, for instance)
