Thanks and accessible hikes

From: Liz B
Sent on: Wednesday, February 15, 2012 3:12 PM
Hello Everyone! I just wanted to thank everyone for their kind words, thoughts and prayers that were sent my way after my accident. I really appreciate it and enjoyed the cards that I received and the visits from hiking friends that were able to stop by the hospital. I was extremely touched by all the kindness coming my way. I appreciate each and everyone of you. To update everyone on my status I am still healing from my injuries. Tomorrow I go back in the hospital to have a bone graft done to graft some of my hip bone and some cadaver bone to my femur. Unfortunately my body was not able to heal the 3" gap in my femur and the surgery must happen. Luckily I will only be back in the hospital for a day or two and then my healing can continue. My two broken bones in my arm are healing well and I will be able to put weight on it soon. My thumb that was not able to move after the accident is slowly gaining movement back. All in all I am confident I will have full function back soon. That brings me to my next subject. As I am able to start walking and driving again I am going to start posting some handicap and stroller accessible hikes. They will be shorter in length and be a relaxed pace to allow the less able and people with young children an opportunity to come out and hike. If anyone has any ideas for good places to hold these hikes please let me know. The ideal locations will have little to no elevation change, paved or level surface (like the towpath) that wheel chairs or strollers could easily navigate and have some nice scenery. I would like to also send a Thank You out to all of our wonderful hike leaders that have ensured that there are a number of hikes for the group to choose from at all levels and that the group didn't miss a beat in my absence. I appreciate all your hard work! Thanks again everyone! Liz B.
