Prayers for a Long Time Community Member
Apr 20th, 2017, 12:31am
 
Those who have been part of the Trixie community for a long time will remember Cynthia.  She was very active on the boards in the early years, and she attended the first few Trixie camps.  (Back when we called them conventions.)
 
Cynthia had a stroke at her home last week.  She is currently in rehab.  Here are the updates that Annette (who coordinated the first convention) posted on Facebook.
 
This was Monday night's post:

Hello, Friends.
I am posting this on behalf of Cynthia.
This past Wednesday morning, she had a stroke at home.
She has lost all use of her left side. She is out of ICU and in a regular room. She hopes to move to a rehab facility soon, hopefully tomorrow.
I call her daily; she has her cell phone. I try to keep the calls short, as she tires very easily, but is cognitively alert. Speech is very precise due to the lost of use of the left side.
I will keep you posted as I get more information.

 
Last night, Annette posted this update:
 
Quote:
Friends,
Cynthia has been moved to the rehab hospital.
Fairlawn Rehabilitation Hospital
189 May St.
Worcester, MA 01602
Room 210.
I just got off the phone with her. She sounded exhausted. Remember, Cynthia has allergies, so no real flowers, please.
The doctor said she needs extensive rehab, so she will be there for awhile. Please help keep her spirits up by sending cards regularly.
She was happy to hear how many people are praying for her, please keep it up.
I currently plan on going out Memorial Day weekend to see her and to catalogue her books.
If you have any questions, let me know.
Best,
Annette

 
And here is this evening's update:
 
Edited:
Friends,
Cynthia had her first day of Rehabilitation. She is exhausted, but her speech sounds better already. The rehab sounds pretty intense, about 3 hours a day. It definitely takes a strong person to manage that!
Keep sending Cynthia the prayers and well wishes. She appreciates them, even if she can't respond.

 
Please pray for Cynthia.  And if you can send her cards or anything else, do that as well.  Just remember, NO FLOWERS because of her allergies.
 
I'll keep you updated on her condition.

Mark I have a card made out for her, but I need her last name. Maybe I missed it in your post. I'll go back in  and check.
