"saveliberty" is Hospitalized (Update from saveliberty at #1568)
via saveliberty | Sunday 23 August, 2009 | FOXFANVOX

Posted on 08/22/2009 10:29:53 PM PDT by FOXFANVOX

Hi All,

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!

Telephone chat with saveliberty:

Since there were rumors that saveliberty was skiing, I called to verify them and she assured me that while she is feeling better and doing fine the rumors of her skiing [or bungee jumping] are without merit.

saveliberty did say she was working on her “happy face”! Because the [temporarily] weakened facial muscles on the right side of her face do not yet fully respond, to get a full smile she has to use her fingers. She promises to let us know when she reaches the goal of a complete and unassisted smile; like this 8)

She is off the exotic medicines and on over-the-counter [OTC] ones. Still having some food issues and her right eye muscles are not fully recovered yet and are causing some problems for reading and such.

But, saveliberty is upbeat and positive as always, and continues on her path to recovery.

Thank you for the update, Foxy.

'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.

saveliberty update:

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!

Cheers,

(saveliberty)

Hello everyone!

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,

save

More prayers up for faster recovery.

Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Amen.

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Great to hear you're doing well, SL - esp. good to know all those mysterious food allergies are clearing up. I wonder if it's the cornstarch in the pudding that's being so stubborn? (as opposed to hasty ;-0)

But now don't be going all Type A on us & get rehabbed too fast, OK? Ya gotta take it v e r r r r y s l o o o o w l y & remember to slack off a little every now & then and kick back so this thread can get up to at least 2K hits.

It has to keep going! What ever would Foxy do with himself without his first & only thread to moderate anymore? ;-)

Wonderful update, saveliberty. Thank you.

As I mentioned in my note to you, a really bad virus managed to get into my desk top computer and destroy the hard drive. This was aggravated by Mrs. Fox having reminded me to backup my stuff on New Year's Day, and I replied: "Sure, as soon as I get around to it." Yeah, right. So now I am in the midst of major surgery on my main computer being guided by a man from the Philippines who assures me nothing can go wrong...go wrong...go wrong! Since I gave Dell the wrong info and they consequently sent me the wrong hard drive, this will take longer than a trip around the moon. Or vice-versa. I can never remember which circles what. [I am still recovering from learning that Earth is not flat!]

So, your progress is boosting my spirits. Hopefully, I shall be back soon, boosting yours. Just as soon as I master the tiny little keys on this laptop.

Meanwhile, work on the pudding. Pudding is a good thing. And it is good for all that ails you, so make it a priority.

8)

* And to all FReepers reading this, back up the stuff on your computer so you don't lose valuable data and irreplaceable photos.
