Hello Readers, I'm Bethany, Christine's oldest daughter. I'm writing on behalf of my mother today. Many of you may have heard the tragic news. As you read in the last Blog my mother got the opportunity of a lifetime to go elk hunting up in the mountains of New Mexico. Unfortunately, on Tuesday, October 13th at about 10:00 am she was involved in a horseback riding accident. She was nearly crushed by the horse and is lucky to be alive. Her right shoulder was shattered, several broken ribs and is very bang and bruised up. 48 hours after this tragic accident she had surgery taking two plates and 10 screws to put her shoulder back together. She is still recovering in the local hospital. She is hopefully going to be released soon. They are working to manage her pain and get her on a good schedule were they feel okay with sending her home. She is very weak and needs assistance with everything.The road to recovery has started; but, we are unsure how long it may be. This really could not of happen at a worst time. She had lost her job shortly before COVID-19 hit and with no job she has no medical insurance. Attached below is a link to a Gofundme account. Currently, we are unaware of the cost for her emergency room visit, surgery, hospital stay and physical therapy. We are grateful for her life today. Thankful to be surrounded by all our friends and family. We ask if you would keep her in your thoughts and prayers. If you can give, anything helps and please share.
