BS: Where’s wysiwyg?

Some have asked where’s wysiwyg?

It has been a long time since wysiwyg aka Susan it has posted at Mudcat.


Susan had a stroke on September 16 and was in a rehab hospital for about three weeks. Presently she is convalescing in a nursing facility near our home.

While she has made great strides in recovery, she is not able to use electronic devices such as a cell phone, computers or tablets at this time. Susan says that she doesn’t wish to receive cards, bur I will share posts to this thread with her.

I am posting this at her request and conveying her the hope that she may be able to resume participation here in the future.

Should any prefer to send greetings by PM, you may feel free to PM me and I will share those with her as well.

Greg

Greg,

Thank you for posting an update! I fear I already went against her wishes and sent a card. :) Oh, well. The last update on Facebook had her going to rehab. I imagine that "stroke brain" is already kicking into gear and figuring out how to break out of the nursing home asap. Good luck and good wishes to both of you!

Best wishes Susan. I hope that you continue to make steady recovery and that it isn’t too long before you are able to join in here.

Susan is a thoughtful, measured and passionate member of Mudcat. I can't say she always sees things the way I see 'em but I've always found her contributions to be fair and thought-provoking. If you see this, Susan, it's all the best from me!

Please pass on my good wishes. I'll wait patiently until she get back on line.

Hi, Greg -- your Canadian pass-by guests of yore wish you all the best. We have some lovely photos of pre- and post-Getaway gatherings at your house in Pennsylvania; those definitely were the days, my friend.

Susan is much missed in the Declutter thread, where we have been following your adventures in retirement (who ever really retires?) and re-settling. Her spot in the discussion is being kept warm until she is ready to take it up again.

Today Susan and I discussed that if she is sitting up tomorrow (today she made it for 2 1/2 that I would wheel her down to the computer area so that we can read your messages of encouragement. If she’s not able to do that, we will look at them on my tablet in her room.

Your messages of encouragement are important and so, I want to thank you for them.

So, this must mean that Hardi is doing all of the organizing and unbagging and unpacking, per your design. The house should be perfect when you get home so you don't have to worry about it (said in jest with a hint of "go for it!" to DH).

Gnu was able to get a few day passes before he was completely discharged from the hospital and went home with family in order to organize furniture so he could wheel/walk himself around the place. I'm sure a plan is forming with you two also. Good luck with this, and it really is one day at a time, with you getting stronger every day.

I was just having the chance to share your posts with Susan.

She says: thank you all for all the wishes. Recovery is very slow with right side still paralyzed. Therapy is 3 times a day,, and the rest of the time is just lying around. So, your words are very encouraging and help to fill the long hours.

WYS is a brave intelligent compassionate advocate of fairness and justice for the oppressed or ignorantly scorned. She has had several unique personal experiences that some people may find hard to believe or even imagine. Her adult life has been one of service to others.
Seldom do we realize the cost involved in such a life envdeavor. There is distress and regret when failure occurs and often little reward when successes happen and there are costs all along the way. She pays those costs and has learned to heal beyond expectations and prior achievements. With faith and a powerhouse of determination her reward has been proven. I have no doubts regarding her progress and celebrate her victories.

Don't often venture down here, but I'm glad I did. Sorry to hear about the stroke Susan, and hope it hasn't left you too lopsided.
I had a TIA (mini stroke) about 5 weeks ago, and (touching wood) I seem to be pretty much recovered.
I know yours will have been more severe than mine, but it's amazing how the brain seems to remap, and exercise helps the body functions to improve, over time.
Good wishes for a speedy recovery.

Susan, I hope you're making progress with the physical therapy and have plans to head home soon. Gnu got out of the medical hoosegow a couple of weeks ago, it's your turn next.

We're still watching this space for news of your improvement, Susan. Even incrementally forward is a good thing, so keep working with the physical therapists.

Susan I hope the new year is bringing you progress on your physical therapy work. And I am curious - has the dog been able to visit you in the rehab facility? They can be such a positive influence.

I'm going to the gym now in anticipation of knee surgery next month - the more "in shape" it is ahead of time, the easier the recuperation will be. And I'm working on a buddy system since an old friend moved back to town. Susan, are you to the point of being able to get into the pool again and exercise? I haven't set up a kit for the pool at this place yet, but I'm told that once the bandage is off and pool access is cleared that's the best exercise for the knee (no weight).

Have Hardy drop in an update if you can't get to the phone or computer yourself. (And in this political season I seeing miss your pointed posts on Facebook.)

I've gone so far as to buy the suit and pack it with a towel in my gym bag. I need to go ahead and find my way through the dressing room to the pool and hot tub and sauna areas before the surgery so I don't have to bumble around later when I'm limping. Thinking of Susan every step of the way.

I hope the longer light each day is a helpful part of the recovery process. Coming out of a dark winter is difficult. I hope we'll get an update one of these days. Take care!
