How it happened. A lot of folks have been asking, and guess it’s better if Kelley doesn’t have to tell everybody the story over and over. She and Sean were leaving the house to go on one of their bike rides. Their house unfortunately is situated at the top of a short and steep slope relative to the street and sidewalk. There is no easy way in and out of the house for her, but in her knobby tired wheelchair she had developed the confidence to switch back down her yard to the sidewalk. It’s a class 4 (maybe 4+) move for sure, but you know how it is when you’ve developed some skills, and done something often enough, just doesn’t seem that risky any more. So she left Sean to lock up the house while she went down the slope. But right near the end of the slope her tire dropped into a large fist sized hole that she did not see or know was there, and the abrupt stop pitched her out of the chair. She came down on he knees in a deep knee bend. It is disturbing that this fall caused so much damage, because it just doesn’t seem like the impact was that hard (she went down on grass). But she does have very little muscular support to absorb the shock, and we just aren’t sure at this point to what degree the condition of her bones may have become compromised by the events over the past year. It will be one of the things that are examined in her follow-up to this accident. More later, Sue

Thanks for filling us in Sue. I would like to organize a time and date soon that we friends from a far can focus on sending Kel light and healing energy through our thoughts, candle light and prayers. How do we go about it? I'll post on Facebook once we know, lots of river folks on there these days. Love to Kel and to all you guardian angels by her. Ronaldo.

It has been awhile since I've checked your blog here & am so, so sorry you have had this setback. You are an amazing woman & my prayers & best wishes for healing are with you. I have a lovely healing CD I want to get to you. Lots of wonderful imagery & colorful healing meditation. I'll find your mailing address & get it off to you. What can I do to help get a fundraising showing of your film in Truckee?
