Libby Lehman - Her Journey

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 of Caringbridge.

Her sister Ellen posted..."I received a quilt made by 26 of Libby’s friends and fellow teachers which includes a square from each of them and is entitled “Loving Libby Through”. Of course, it is gorgeous! The intent was explained to me as a comforting warm “hug” for Libby and also for it to be used as a tool for her in therapies to identify the squares and the donors’ by name. I can’t wait to take it to Libby tomorrow and if technology does not baffle me too much, I will include a photo of it on Caringbridge."
