Medical professionals will be facing circumstances most have never seen. They will be working long hours, day in and day out for weeks—not quitting until the job is complete.
They will care for a patient’s physical symptoms and also their fears, stress and anxiety.
Here is the second of six helpful tips from Matt Swanson, M.D., your Skyline Health physician, on how you can support a health care worker. Please visit myskylinehealth.org for a complete list.
.......................... #2 Thank them. If you know a health care worker, be sure to thank them. Just hearing you recognize their work is very powerful. Also, reach out to them and have a conversation!

We, along with everyone else, miss simpler times, when we could hang at the pub and eat more normal. To make things a little more simple, online ordering is now available through the website. Link is in our profile available for PDX and Hood River. Cheers 🍻
The Columbia River is once again turning the Basin green! Our irrigation tech (Daddy’s little helper) is busy at work. “The mightiest thing ever built by a man, To run these great factories and water the land, It's roll on, Columbia, roll on.” -Woody Guthrie
I don’t usually use quotes, but when I do, I’m making sure they’re from a village idiot like me : « I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all floating around accidental-like on a breeze. But I... I think maybe it’s both. »
Named for its characteristic form, Horsetail Falls plunges 176ft within view of the Historic Columbia River Highway, so close that cars and the road are often sprayed by its mist which can cause some very icy conditions in the winter. A short yet steep trail here leads towards it's upper fall, Ponytail Falls, an 88ft single plunge fall with access to stand behind the falling water.
I was NOT planning on getting a dog at all!🐶
I was in my senior year of college, randomly looking up Chesapeake Bay Retriever breeders “near me” just for fun.🤷🏻♀️
Fast forward a few months later and my dad randomly finds the breeder we got Ragnar from, they had never popped up when I was looking for months before!
They were expecting pups in a few months, so I reached out just to see! Someone already had first pick male (which is what I really wanted) so I said I’d sleep on it!💤
The next day I get a text from the breeder saying the person who had first pick male actually wanted a female, so first pick was mine if I wanted it! I pulled the trigger and said YES! And started freaking out from excitement and fear!😂
September 3rd: Ragnar’s litter had a tough birth and after hours there ended up only being three females and ONE male who made it, so he was mine.🤗 The two months until he could come home drug on, but I was so happy the day I picked him up, I cried!😂
I love this goober so much and truly believe the way everything fell into place so perfectly, that he was meant to be my dog! Maybe some powerful being above knew the timing was right and I needed him as a best friend!😊
Until Thursday, get a portion of steelhead and rockfish (about 10-11 oz each) and half pound of shrimp for $25! We are open the rest of this week from noon until 7. Yesterday we were having phone issues and we hope to have it resolved today.
When I imagined finally meeting Kylee and Justin in person, I didn’t picture us staying at least six feet apart at all times. I usually tackle my couples with the biggest freaking bear hug, but this time we opted to bring back the bow and curtsy. A lot changed last week, and my job is looking very different in the coming weeks and months. I am rescheduling weddings, planning elopements, and working with countless other vendors to make it all happen—we would do anything for our couples, so if you have any worries please, please reach out. Even if you’re not one of my couples, I want to help you! We can’t control this time, but we can still show up for each other in creative ways, and that’s what I’m choosing to focus on. So this week please keep up your kindness, hold on to each other, and LETS ALL STAY HOME 🙏🏻
If you’re visiting Portland, Oregon, take a day to explore the Columbia River Gorge. With beautiful river views, dense forests, and crashing waterfalls it makes for an excellent break from the city. Start by diving to Crown Point Vista House Lookout - where you can get out for a view - and continue driving, stopping at markers for waterfalls along the way. A great final stop is Multnomah Falls, pictured here. Treat yourself to lunch at the historic Multnomah Falls Lodge after enjoying the incredible view from the bridge between the upper and lower falls.*
