Some of you regular readers of the Goat's Lunch Pail may have been wondering where Leah has disappeared to. Well, I have finally gotten the go-ahead from her to disclose that she has been taken ill with congestive heart failure. This has come as quite a shock to all of us (not least of all, Leah!). She has always taken care of herself – she doesn’t smoke, rarely drinks, eats well-balanced, nutritious food, gets plenty of exercise. In other words, she has done everything right and still ended up falling ill.
She has been moved from hospital to hospital, and is now in the University Hospital in Edmonton, undergoing a battery of tests to try to determine what has caused this. I know that she would be most pleased to receive your good wishes (and virtual chocolates!), so anyone who wishes to have a message passed on to her can leave it in my comment’s section and I will ensure that she receives it! I will also keep you posted on further developments as I hear them.
Well, I'll be the first unless someone is typing at this very same moment.
Hope you feel better soon, Leah, we miss you!
Thanks, Crabby! Leah will be pleased to hear from you.
Please send on my best wishes to her. My Mum has suffered from CHF for about a year now...it takes a bit to get a hold of and adjust life and medications a bit to get things level. I hope she takes the time and has good medical help to get her back on track.
Be well...Merry Christmas Leah.
Geosomin - will gladly pass on your best wishes and the info about your mom.
Oh, no! I hope it's some consolation that her overall good health will help her pull through more quickly. That healthy lifestyle was not in vain and she'll be blogging again in no time!
Give her my best wishes!
Well, I'm sure I speak for the Women of Mystery in saying we're sorry Leah's ailing, glad she's been moved to where she can get the best care, and have our fingers crossed and our hopes high for her quick recovery and return to the blogways!
Bunnygirl - I'm sure you're right - her healthy lifestyle can only be a bonus! Thanks for the good wishes.
Clare2e - Thank you, too, and I know Leah will be glad to hear from you.
I just read about Leah at AW. My thoughts and prayers go out to her for a good recovery (and to her family as well).
Wordsmith, I'll be sure to pass your comment along - thanks for stopping by!
Please tell Leah that I am praying for a speedy recovery! I always enjoy her comments over at Cranky Fitness. I hope she is with us (virtually) soon!
Baggie, please send her my best wishes for a speedy recovery. I'm sending good thoughts her way.
Holly and Hilary - I'm sure Leah will be pleased to hear from both of you, and thanks for your good thoughts!
Please tell Leah she's in my prayers, TBL. Love is headed her way from North Carolina from me and Miss Mama. XOXOXO
VL - I'll be sure to tell her...thanks!
Hi - please send along hugs and best wishes for me! Any word today?
Hi, missicat - no, I haven't heard anything new yet today, but I will post any news I hear. I will send along your hugs and good wishes! Thanks!
I can't seem to print this, but I am going to visit Leah today and my new phone has web access on it, so she will be able to read them all for herself.
You can go to my site for an update and photo of Leah.
Thanks for letting us all know. Love and prayers to dfLeah and her loving cousins.
dfTerrie! You're back! We're so glad, and I'm sure Reb will pass on your good wishes to Leah.
