The latest post from Ricky Tims on Facebook is dated today:
Libby continues to improve – slowly, but surely. She is expected to transfer soon to another hospital where her rehabilitation can begin. Each day she seems more alert and it is evident that she is making progress.
From Ricky on Sunday:
Libby Update for Sunday – Mother’s Day.
Libby is still in critical condition. She is waking for longer periods of time and was a bit more responsive this morning when Lester was there. She obviously smiled at Lester and squeezed his hand more and stronger than yesterday.
Your prayers are appreciated.
We are so grateful for Ricky’s updates, and most of all, that Libby is showing signs of recovery!
From Ricky Tims on Facebook:
Libby Lehman update. Libby has been transported to a new hospital where she will begin very slow rehabilitation. I understand her first day there was tiring and so her progress was not evident. However, the general improvement continues.
The family has set up a Caring Bridge page where you can get updates directly from the family. This will be the best way for you to get your information. I will continue to report from time to time, but I urge you to visit this page – sign the guestbook and submit your email so that you can get email updates if they are sent.
God Bless Libby
Caring Bridge is a fine organization which provides a much needed service to the family and friends of people dealing with serious illness and injury. By all means, follow the link to Libby’s page there.
Update II (5-18-13)
There are THREE (!) Libby updates on Caring Bridge today from Libby’s sister Cathy and from Sarah Davis:
From Cathy: Wow! Thank you, thank you for all of the beautiful cards, letters, and art pieces (mini-masterpieces!) you have sent Libby. She has received over 400 from all over the world! We have been reading them to her every day, and will continue to do so. We have displayed some of them on a big piece of foam board in her room so she can see them. What a beautiful visual testimony to the love being sent to her. We can never thank you enough.
From Sarah: Sisters Cathy & Ellen have been creative with some sweet caring moments. Cathy & Bill read cards to her & have made a bulletin board in her room with some of them. Ellen gave her an impromptu make-over hospital style with some neutral lipstick. Ellen reports a bit more responsive than last two days.
And from Cathy again: Several of you have asked for Libby’s mailing address. Because her home mailbox is small, we are asking you to send any mail to her husband, Lester’s, work address:
Update III: (5-19-13)
Libby’s sister Cathy posted this on Caring Bridge today:
Libby continues to rest peacefully. Although we couldn’t get her to open her eyes for more than about a minute at a time, she moved around a little bit more in her sleep. She moved her right leg more often today. I read her some of her cards and letters and Caring Bridge messages to her. I don’t know if she heard me, but it was comforting to me to read all of the sweet messages and to hope that she is feeling all the love flowing to her. Lester got a strong squeeze from her while holding her hand and talking to her. Please pray for more alertness and continued healing.There
However, the highlight of the day was this afternoon when Lester showed Libby his new haircut. He got his hair buzzed into a “burr” cut to match her hair growing back. Then during a conversation with me he mentioned he liked the new hair color growing back better than the last color she paid for. At that Libby’s eyebrows shot up along with the biggest grin we’ve seen in a long time. The crowd went wild and all three of us were laughing in our own way. Lester you were so busted. Thank you, God, for the sign we have been looking for! Love, Sister Ellen (#3 in sibling order, but #1 in your hearts-haha)
Doesn’t that sound like Libby, though?

There’s still time to leave a get well message for Libby below, too.
Please help us to send Libby best wishes for her recovery. Let’s add to that wonderful stack of cards!
We’d like to give everyone who’s been following the Libby updates on our blog and via Facebook an opportunity to send her a short greeting. WRBQ and The Quilt Shop Navigator will be producing a get well scroll to be sent to her next week. If you would like to have your get well wishes for Libby included on the scroll, please post them in the comments below, along with your city, state or province, and country, so that we can add a map to show her that she has well wishers all over the world.
