Our long time friend here at CR, Gaberlunzie, aka Petra, is hospitalized in a special German hospital. Petra has been diagnosed as having a spinal stroke, also called transverse myelitis and her legs are paralyzed. She will be going for therapy soon to try to regain mobility. It will be many weeks in rehab for her and lets hope she overcomes this ordeal.

Petra has her computer with her at the hospital and is able to get on line. As I get more info from her, I will pass it on.

A little info, just so you don't have to go searching to find out what a spinal stroke is.

What is Spinal Cord Infarction?

Spinal cord infarction is a stroke either within the spinal cord or the arteries that supply it. It is caused by arteriosclerosis or a thickening or closing of the major arteries to the spinal cord. Frequently spinal cord infarction is caused by a specific form of arteriosclerosis called atheromatosis, in which a deposit or accumulation of lipid-containing matter forms within the arteries. Symptoms, which generally appear within minutes or a few hours of the infarction, may include intermittent sharp or burning back pain, aching pain down through the legs, weakness in the legs, paralysis, loss of deep tendon reflexes, loss of pain and temperature sensation, and incontinence.

What is the prognosis?

Recovery depends upon how quickly treatment is received and how severely the body is compromised. Paralysis may persist for many weeks or be permanent. Most individuals have a good chance of recovery.

What can I say ... I'm afraid I will never find the right words; and all I can think of is THANK YOU and THANK YOU FROM MY DEEPEST HEART ...
My kids gave me an internet stick for my b-day and brought my laptop also, so I can have a wee look at night.

It is true, it hit me badly and there are no promises made to me as for my recovery. But I WILL get back on my feet and I will pull through the long, long weeks until then. I will be better than only good.

Thank you so much for your well wishes, for your prayers, for your positive thoughts and actions. They are so much appreciated. You guys are the best. All of you.

I will try to post here from time to time but at some point i might have to concentrate on myself so much that I won't find time for it. I hope you won't mind that too much.
Your names are written in my heart and thank you again;

may you all walk in beauty,

with love,
gaberlunzie aka Petra

Well, Miss Petra, since you managed to find your way here today, I will leave the updates to you for the next 2 weeks. Annabelle and I will be at the B&B getting ready for the Grand Opening on Oct. 2 and I won't have any internet access during that time.

Knowing you as well as I do, they will be discharging you soon. You will be running down the hallways with a big smile on your face. You simply do not take NO for an answer. YOU GO GIRL!!!


Check back with you in 2 weeks. Get well, my lady!!

Gaberlunzie:

I am relatively new here but I have enjoyed your recipes in the Kitchen forums. I am added my thoughts and prayers also. I would say you have the biggest battle already won with your great attitude. Please keep us informed when you can.
