Dislocated knee – Any help with kids greatly appreciated

I know that this is COVID and carpooling is avoided.

But I “catastrophically” (doctor’s words) dislocated my knee cross country skiing with my kids after Christmas. The kids led me on a circuit of the Upper Trails. On a steeper, ungroomed patch (Unknown Lake?), the edge of the my right ski caught, and wrenched my knee out of its socket 90 degrees to where it naturally bent. Hospital ER reducted the knee, but it is immobilized in a wrap, and I will likely need reconstructive surgeries. I cannot drive for weeks, perhaps for months, and I am a single Mom.

My children Raphael and Aletheia are in Jackrabbits 3 on Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings.
We live in Burnaby near Metrotown.

If anybody who lives nearby could give my (masked) kids a ride up to Cypress whenever possible – it would be greatly greatly appreciated help.

We live in a 2 bedroom apartment with my 91 year old mother who has atrial fibrillation and a history of heart failure, so we are super super careful with COVID precautions. I keep my kids from school, and select only activities for them that are outdoors or with very rigorous COVID safety protocols.

Thank you so much for considering this.
