Lebanon — Karen Crane had expected to spend her spring, summer and fall working at a campground with her husband in the Upper Valley.

Instead, the 67-year-old Idaho resident has watched the leaves change from her room at Genesis Health Care.

For three months, Crane has been healing from severe injuries she sustained during a July 4th party in Sharon, when a deck collapsed and both her legs were broken. Several other people were hurt in the accident, but none as significantly as Crane, who required three surgeries and was able to put weight on her legs only a month ago.

Today, Crane and her husband, Steven, will drive home to Idaho. Her recovery has been remarkable, according to Genesis staff, though, at times, it has also been difficult and frustratingly slow.
