Barry’s Story

Site created on March 16, 2018

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. Thank you for all of your texts, emails and calls and for keeping Barry and our family in your thoughts.  We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

On the morning of March 13, Barry was in the Sultan Basin when trees fell on his vehicle.  Fortunately there were Department of Natural Resource workers in the area who responded quickly.  Barry was airlifted to Harborview Hospital in Seattle where he remains in the intensive care unit.  Barry has suffered significant trauma.  Barry's team here at Harborview is working tirelessly to keep him stabilized while they assess and treat his injuries. 

At this time. visitors are limited to family.  As his condition changes we will let you know.  We will be posting updates periodically, so please visit again soon.  Feel free to share this site and information with others.

Journal entry by Kerry Chrisman

Barry asked me to marry him!  What a beautiful journey we have had together.  When he got hurt I was so scared I would have to navigate the rest of life on my own.  But in true fashion, he showed his strength and still does today.  Not much to update medically but just wanted to give him a shout out.
