A letter from Brother Tom

August 5, 2017

Dear family and friends,

Here is a note to update you on our recent happenings. As many of you know, Bonnie and I planned to put our house up for sale in August. We moved from a 4 bedroom home where we lived for 44 years into a small 2 bedroom apartment on July 1st. Our new address is 12505 SW North Dakota St., Apt 808, Tigard, OR 97223.Our apartment is great and only 3 blocks away from the house we lived in. That has make our transition much easier but we are still packing and unpacking a few boxes etc. daily.
On Tuesday afternoon, July 14, Bonnie tripped and fell while walking around in our house. She had been working with a lady from NW Organizers in decluttering. She hit her foot against a box or the corner of the wall falling hard to the floor on her left side.We called 911 and they took her to the emergency room at St. Vincent’s hospital for examination and treatment. She has a broken vertebrae in her neck and patella in her left knee, a dislocated little finger on her left hand (she is left handed so that adds to the complication), and pain in her other knee. Doctors put her in a brace for her neck and knee and gave her pain medication. She stayed in the hospital until the Friday the 21st when she was transferred to Maryville Nursing and Convalescent Center in Beaverton. She got PT and OT there and was released to come back home to our apartment yesterday. She will need to keep both braces on for about another 5 weeks. Please keep us in your prayers.
Bonnie had me and a steady parade of visitors, nurses, therapists and doctors coming daily. The treatment at Maryville was outstanding and we were blessed to be able to have her get in there. I have also been blessed with the help of my nephew, Michael Chau, and friends who have been so kind as to provide some meals for me. With the 3+ days of over 100 degrees this week we were fortunate to get 2 air conditioners installed before she came back to our apartment.
If you wish you can contact Bonnie any day on her cell phone 503.789.7313. She would be happy to hear from you.
Thanks for your continued love and prayers.

Tom & Bonnie
