On a Monday in mid January 2016 I went off trail in my forest to take pictures. Heading down the Christiansen Creek ravine to view some old cedars, I slipped on some loose duft and in the process tore the quadriceps tendon off my right knee. Thursday February 2nd I go into Virginia Mason for surgery to re-attach the tendons. Recover is expected to take up to six months with lots of physical therapy. During that period I will be unable to drive and limited in my movements. Caring friends on Vashon have already started to bring meals and others would like to join a meal train.
Hopefully this website can help us coordinate visits, trips and meals. A special thanks already to my wonderful and hear sister Kathleen who has been a superb nurse during my first ten days before surgery. It's times like these that I am so lucky and happy to be on our wonderful isle, Vashon
