Dear Enumclaw community: My mom and I were on a walk Wednesday, Sept. 8th at approximately 2:00 p.m. on Harding and McHugh here in town.
My mom’s little dog is nervous and got scared of a large truck going passed us. Her dog backed up and wrapped her leash around my moms legs. My mom fell off the sidewalk curb and hit her head on the street. My mom ended up with a very large hematoma on her forehead, a fractured nose, and nasty bruises all down her face. Luckily though, no broken bones!
My mom and I want everyone to know what a beautiful, wonderful community we live in! I have lived here over 30+ years, she has lived here over 10 years. I guess it takes something like this to bring it home to our hearts again.
From the UPS driver that stopped to ask if we needed help, to the compassion of the Enumclaw Hospital staff, Dr. Ghermay, and the wonderful nurses who patiently took their time to access her wounds and explain to us what needed to be done and even called the specialist to have my mom checked out first thing the next morning.
Nancy Becker’s ears, nose and throat clinic has been amazing. The office staff, nurses and Dr. Becker are very knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. They even called to follow up to check in on my moms progress. Calvary Presbyterian Church – the prayers, visits, phone calls, love and support we have felt from our church has been a gift! We can truly see Gods hand in this from the very beginning.
At a time when everyone feels stress from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is so comforting to know that there are so many hardworking, compassionate, wonderful, beautiful individuals, right here in our own little town we all call home. Thank you all for your dedication, hard work and love. We really appreciate you!
