A message from Helene:
I am so touched by your amazing outpouring of messages, emails, flowers...of your offers of solidarity, of help, offers to start fundraising campaigns, offers of food etc. etc. I’m truly blessed and overwhelmed. Sunday morning early, half asleep, I had a bad fall headlong into a wall, face first, hands second...(and was taken) to the UW (University of Washington) emergency unit. I was there all day as they took numerous x-rays, CT scans and an MRI. They had me completely immobilized and in a neck brace from when I got there around 10 AM until approximately 10 PM, When the results finally showed that I had no important damage to my neck and no fractures to my spine except for one very microscopic one that they couldn’t do anything about anyhow and also no significant ligament damage. However I do have ligament and muscle stress and nerve injury and I have a fractured nose and sinuses and six stitches in my forehead. I was released Sunday night and was home shortly before midnight.
I’m so thankful to all of my students for your love patience and understanding.
Here’s another list of all the things I’m really thankful for: I’m not dead! I didn’t fracture my neck or my spine. I still have all of my teeth. I didn’t fracture my skull. I can walk with no problems at all even if I’m tired. The pain in my shoulders is already going down. I’ve had neuropathy in my fingers before and know that it comes from my shoulders and know that it will heal with time. I feel all of your love and so appreciate all the messages and flowers and food etc. etc. etc. that you are sending me!!! ️️️ I appreciate your patience in me getting back to you.
It’s times like this where you realize especially what a blessing all of the people that you have all around you are. Thank you for being one of them.
