Skip to comments."saveliberty" is Hospitalized (Update from saveliberty at #1568)
Posted on 08/22/2009 10:29:53 PM PDT by FOXFANVOX
I just received an e-mail from "saveliberty" advising me she has been hospitalized. The cause as she wrote was:
"I have a significant, but benign tumor near my ear that is pushing against a nerve (which hemorrhaged). It sounds bad but I have excellent care."
It certainly does sound serious to me, even though saveliberty said she was being well cared for. She did want me to let her FRiends here know of her condition. When I get further info, I will post it.
In the mean time, if you could add saveliberty to your prayers, I know she would be comforted by that.
saveliberty is often the Threadmistress, and I am but a poster. So, if you all could perhaps place saveliberty's situation in the proper locations, I would be very grateful. [Or Moderators, if you are reading this.]
Get well soon, saveliberty!
Freeper Peep shows are messy but g-rated. ;)
'Specially liked the encouragement to saveliberty toward achieving her smile "like this 8)". lol.
Saveliberty is sure to be smiling on the inside while she is working on her outside smile.
I once suffered from Bell's Palsy. I know that isn't anything compared to what saveliberty is experiencing, but I can relate to the half smile and the droopy eye. I couldn't get my eyelid to close, so I made an eye patch from Press and Seal plastic wrap to hold the eyelid shut and keep debris out of it. lol.
It will take a bit of time for her; but, so glad she is on the mend. Praying every day for her full recovery.
LOL. Nah, sometimes I just happen upon them at opportune times such as with this one. I was as surprised as you are about this one. Ha!
Got an e-mail from savelibery saying things are progressing “on schedule”. The walker is gathering dust and the cane is history. [Maybe S/L should “raise a little cain”?!]
Her eyes are improving but still give her headaches if she reads too much. [No “Oprah”, S/L.]
The food allergies are still largely unresolved but they must be getting better as saveliberty mentioned some “...chocolate covered strawberries” that she was given and didn't want to go to waste. [Yeah, right. The phrase is go to “waist”! At least, for the rest of us.]
She closed her note with a message to all:
“Thank you once again for your support and good wishes!
I always notice your subtlety!! ;>)
Thanks for all the updates on save! Much appreciated!
It has been about one month since the first surgery and I am doing better each day.
I started outpatient physical therapy last week and learned that while I am far less steady on my feet that I’d thought, I am doing very well considering where I’ve been. Physical therapy is working out well already as the therapist specializes in neurological and vestibular issues. She has been suggesting exercises to address both the surgery and the hemorrhage, which is great.
I am allowed to go on the treadmill again, but when I do so at home, I need to hold onto the railings. In therapy, I will be allowed to walk without holding onto anything. Today, I walked on our treadmill at home for 40 minutes unassisted.
Some of the facial muscles are coming back. I can close my right eye and use some of my muscles, although I still need to hold up my right side to smile.
Food issues are on the way to being resolved — Hooray! Pudding and pizza are still beyond what I can handle, but I can have some dairy and flour, and the proteins have expanded to allow for beef and pork (including bacon - Yay!). And of course, I’ve already started to work on a Cadbury Fruit and Nut bar. LOL
Thank you for your good thoughts, prayers, friendship and support!
Cheers back at ya SL
