A heartfelt thanks

In the summer of 2018 I dislocated my hip while cutting a small tree in my yard; 911 was called and Erving Police and Fire departments arrived along with EMT’s – ambulance. I was in severe pain tangled up in the shrubs. It took them quite some to get me out because they were being very careful due to the pain I was in. I was transported to Baystate Franklin Emergency Room and was seen by Dr. Chapman who reset my hip and I went home that night.

On Nov. 1, 2019 I dislocated my hip again while in the shower and once more rescued by 911 service, Erving Police Department, Fire Department and EMT-ambulance and again transported to Baystate Franklin Medical Emergency Room. Once more, Dr. Chapman was on duty and reset my hip and I returned home.

I just want to say a big heartfelt thank you to all who helped me!

I am very grateful for all who helped during both of my accidents and to everyone who are the first responders everywhere.
