After 4 weeks in the hospital and rehab at Seaport Village Healthcare, for knee replacement, two
weeks of meals were arranged for me so I wouldn't have to cook and would have healthy meals.
Rev. Joan Preble, deacon at St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church, co-ordinated the meals with the
meals that I had at Friends In Action at the Senior Center and Everybody Eats, a community
meal every Monday.
Thanks to everyone who assisted with the meals for me. I appreciate them more than mere words
can say since I greatly underestimated what I'd be able to do for myself when I got home.
I would also like to thank the visitors, known and unknown (I understand I was a very sound
sleeper)at the nursing home. Your kindness is much appreciated.
