Patswain recovering from accident

Patswain, a generous teacher and identifier of plants in the northeast, has had a terrible accident. Her bicycle was hit by a car. She has multiple broken bones and is finding it difficult to get on iNat due to the injury. Perhaps any of you who also know her could drop her a note with good wishes.

If anyone know her in real life and can suggest how to help at a distance, please let me know .

Warmly,

Patti

I don’t know her either but I have had the benefit of her identifications - hoping for a full and fast recovery.

Thank you for posting about this! I do know her and will drop her a card! Maybe give her a call! Poor Pat, I’m so glad she is on iNaturalist.

Welcome to the Forum!
Although the name seems familiar, I can’t say I had any interactions with her. As a lifelong cyclist I think I can somewhat understand the pain (and anger) she will be feeling. So, as a fellow Cyclist, and member of iNat I wish her an uncomplicated recovery. I’ve only had a broken collar bone, concussions, and several minor but painful injuries from riding, so I can at least empathize.

Oh NOOO! I know Pat well, we worked together for years. I will definitely send her a card - thanks for telling us.

I don’t but I wish her all the best for a speedy recovery. I’ve been twice sidelined in bike accidents, and it’s no fun, at all.
