Kelley has had a pretty major set back in her life. Last saturday she "tripped" in her wheel chair, and in the fall ended up breaking both her femurs. She did not know her injury was so bad until her legs started swelling a couple of days later. She just got out of surgery this evening, and the doctors have told Kurt it went well. She has some new pins in her legs, and cannot put weight on her legs for 6 weeks, so she will not be able to do her high level physical therapy for some time, and undoubtably will be basically bed ridden for awhile. Her spirits are still strong, although she knows she is in for a tough couple months ahead (as if her life has not been tough enough). So please give her a call, and for those who live close, arrange to stop by if you can, and maybe offer to run some errands for her and Kurt if they need. And of course the NTAF fund could still use a boost, since there will undoubtably be some costs associated with this situation. Will keep the blog posted as events unfold in this new unforeseen detour in Kelleys Journey to Recovery.
