Mi historia

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!
