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

Welcoming Wednesday

Today the weather was gorgeous in Texas. I think Houston is preparing to receive all the visitors for the awesome International Quilt Festival.

Libby had a good day. Susan Gartner visited this morning and reported via text ... Amazing Libby walking; we just took about a 15 minute walk in this beautiful weather. I am so impressed with Libby's progress- she is able to manage going up & down the curb with the walker by herself. She is also walking very fast and using her left hand with greater success. She is now trying to write with her left hand. Another wonderful day visiting Libby.

Tiffany said she did great at TIRR. And Libby said she worked extra hard and now "ultra tired & exhausted". Tiffany also reported that the therapist said the sleep boots are already making a big difference. Libby was too tired this evening to watch our show Wheel of Fortune so it was off to an early slumber. Lots of "I love you"s as I left the room. Sweet dreams to all~ Sarah
