Libby’s Story

Please see the background story below and the subsequent updates under "Journal" for the tragic and amazing story of Libby Lehman's stroke and her ongoing recovery.  The family so appreciates your comments and concern.

If you would like to make a contribution to the "Libby Lehman Medical Fund", you may use paypal.com.  Just set up an account with paypal.com and donate to libby.medfund@gmail.com,  or send a check to her sister, Cathy Arnold, at 2220 Stanmore, Houston, TX 77019 for deposit into a special account at JPMorgan Chase Bank.  

Please do not make a contribution to CaringBridge "in tribute to Libby" as solicited on this website.  Those donations go to the CaringBridge website, not to Libby!

Libby gave so much to so many people.  She needs your support now.

On April 30, 2013, Libby had a ruptured aneurysm in her doctor's office and she was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital. Lester had taken her to the doctor's office because she had suffered severe headaches for a few days, starting in Paducah, Kentucky at a quilting conference.   The following day she had a 7 hour surgery to clip the aneurysm.  Several days later she suffered a stroke and vascular spasms and required additional surgery.  Updates on Libby's progress are in the  "Journal" section, including her many months in hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, a few weeks at home, and recently a return to a skilled nursing care and rehab facility after a bout with an infection in the hospital. She continues moving on an uneven road to recovery with ongoing care and therapies. Thank you so much for your interest, support, and concern. Libby is blessed with so many friends, old and new!

Latest Journal Update

Wed. Afternoon

Libby had just returned from TIRR therapy and was eager to watch Jeopardy. Amazes me how often she guessed the right answer. Had to wait to ask about her day & therapy. She showed me the beautiful holiday flowers Gail Garber had sent. They fit in perfectly with her festive decorations and she was very proud of them. Also showed off the "yummy, goey chocolate cake that Challie brought. She can't wait till supper so she can have some for desert. She called Joe from the hall to come look at her cake. Challie also brought some fun art supplies. We are planning a big craft day. Libby expressed that therapies were a bit hard today but part is that sometimes she's just moody. Then we had a bit of a Christmas concert complete with a song my son-in-law, Chuck Allen Floyd, had just put on Reverbnation. It is his rendition of Dolly Partin's "Hard Candy Christmas". Libby loves to move when there is music. Now off to supper and some of that "yummy, goey cake"! Jingle bells to all - Sarah
