Title: Freud
Post by: Lilhigbee on January 02, 2018, 06:15:35 PM
Marlo just informed me that Freud had a stroke some time last night.  He is currently in the hospital with one side not functioning and unable to speak.  I'll update this as I learn anything.

I do not know Freud and am not a racer. I wish him the best in a complete recovery. I come here to learn about LSR but I do know something about strokes as I had one in Aug. 2013. Everyone's symptoms are different. If you EVER THINK you are having a stroke get to a hospital. There is a drug called TPA that can reverse the effects of a stroke BUT it must be administered within 3 hours of the first symptom. I feel I would be in a wheelchair if a young Dr. had not diagnosed me properly. I could not open my eyes without throwing up, I was that dizzy. Couldn't walk either and it happened instantly. I was in ICU for four days. TPA thins the blood drastically and dissolves the clot. On the forth day I was able to walk out of the hospital. It turns out mine was caused by a bruise on my leg. I have absolutely no after effects from either the stroke or drug. Take Freud's situation as a warning, we are all getting older. If you THINK it's a possibility get to a hospital. Again, best thoughts for Freud.

The LeFevers Family wish him a speedy recovery. Besides who's going to do Marlo's PR in Australia if he doesn't get back in the saddle.  :-o He's very much needed.



I reread what I wrote & it didn't come out sounding like I meant it. Hope this is better.

  If there was ever a finer man to be a spokesman, give encouragement or help You out on the Salt Flats, I have never met He, She, or Them.
  If God is listening I sure hope He knows how much He means to all of us.  I am far from religious but right now I am praying for Glenn, Dorris and the entire Freudenberger family.                                                                                            Bob Drury

Taken from Freud's Facebook page....

Hi everyone,

This is Rose Freeman, Freud's granddaughter. Thank you all so much for sending your love and prayers <3 <3 You're welcome to comment on this post and I'll read your notes to him!

Freud had a stroke yesterday at his physical therapy appointment. He had a tear in the carotid artery. They took him to the Swedish hospital emergency in Edmonds, Washington. He had several tests done yesterday (cat scan and echo-cartiogram) and was stable. When I visited him, he immediately recognized me and asked if I brought my kitty Kailey to sit on his lap. Then, he asked me if I took pictures of the supermoon the night before. He was moved from the Emergency room and joked about riding backwards and doing donuts down the hallway in his hospital over to the third floor. As the day went on, he continued to carry short conversations with people and he recognized that he had a stroke.

The left side of his face looks much better today and he is resting. Doris is in good spirits and is grateful for your kind words. He will have an MRI this afternoon. The next couple days will determine a lot about his recovery. As I know more I will keep updating you on his account here. Please feel free to share this post. <3

Much love,
Rose Freeman

From Glenn's Facebook page - January 7th - as documented by Rose -


"My doctor says that in order to recover from a stroke you have to be stubborn." -Freud

Last night Freud partied late visiting with his son Gary Freud. This afternoon Glenn is awake, telling stories with Nick Genet, and scheming about how to update about Target 550 next.
 
Freud:"Did you have any regrets about letting me ride your bike?"

Nick Genet: "No regrets. Actually, one. The only regret I have about you riding my bike is that we hadn't done it sooner, so that we could have done it for more years. But, at the end of the day, we did it."

Thank you for the messages and prayers, it means so much to have your support.

In case you missed my update yesterday, he is out of the hospital and now at Genesis in Everett, Washington. His doctor yesterday reviewed his charts and was surprised with Freud's general appearance and improvement since Wednesday. He still has no movement to his left side but can speak well. He enjoys your messages and visits!

Much love,
Rose Freeman

To which, all I can add is . . .

For me that link only brings me to like a homepage that shows Glenn's picture and his likes. Does not let me get into his posts, and says I have to login. I tried the not now and it still rejects me.

I can view the SCTA Facebook page if I say not now, so I guess different accounts are set up differently for non registered Facebook viewing.

Title: Re: Freud

This is from Feb 4th.

Good morning friends ❤️❤️

This is Rose Freeman, Glennís granddaughter. Thank you all so much again for your thoughts, prayers, and notes. I wanted to give you an update on my grandpa as he is such a dear person to so many people. I wish I had time to call every one of you personally, but a post will have to do.

A few days ago, we saw some great progress and healing in his brain. He picked up a spoon on Friday and fed himself. He picked up a cup of water, too! This was sweet to see him start to do things on his own. Along with the good days, he has bad days. He goes from alert and awake at meals, to a deep sleep where nobody can wake him up. This is part of the healing process, but yesterday morning something just wasnít right.

We had another urine sample done and found he has another UTI (he had one a couple weeks ago) and pneumonia as of yesterday. Heís not doing well right now. If youíre the kind of praying person, or even if youíre not, please pray for Glenn. Pray for healing through these antibiotics, pray for comfort for him right now. Please pray for my grandma Doris to know she is not alone. Personally, Iím praying that my grandpa knows how loved he is by all of us and most importantly, by God.

If youíd like to come by to see him, please feel free to contact me preferably by a text (call is ok, Iíll just get back to you faster by text) at 425 248 9288. Also, you can leave a message for him in the comments below or tag him in a post and Iíll read it to him.

To my grandpaís dear friends at Bonneville, you are family. Please know Iíd love to hear from you.

Much love ❤️❤️

-Rose Freeman

I'll never argue with the healing power a pet can bring to the table. 

When you're stuck in bed, a warm, fuzzy cat, willing to just be there and be petted - there's a therapeutic value in that well beyond the powers of modern medicine.

Glenn - one day at a time, my friend.

Hello friends 💕

This is Rose Freeman, Freudís granddaughter. My PaPa and I were looking at pictures of the Girls tonight and this [old picture of Glenn's cats - 4bM] showed up in his Facebook memories from a few years ago! I wanted to share it again.

 He is still here at the Everett Genesis rehab facility and weíre beginning the process to transition him to a smaller adult family home in the near future. His short term memory has improved lately and heís enjoyed visits with family and friends. Thank you for your thoughts and notes! Freud loves hearing from all of you!

This is Rose's reply to the same query by John Noonan yesterday Glen.

"Iíll do an update soon John J Noonan! He is very much the same - not able to walk, feed himself, get out of bed alone. He is in good spirits most of the time and loves company. His mind is as sharp as ever and he remembers so many stories to tell. He is still at the rehab facility but we hope to have him moved to a long term care home in the next couple weeks. Thank you for asking, Iíll update more often even if itís the same thing."


Title: Re: Freud

Had a nice talk with Freud's son today. His condition is still pretty bad. Has to depend on a lot of help for everything. Doris has a lot of help at the house to take care of her. Please say a prayer for both of them and a full recovery for Glenn. This is very hard for him. He does have some better days and can talk but the phone is a little difficult for him.  we say a prayer for him daily. Sure miss what he does for LSR   and his great photos.

If you want to send a card or something - think about what Nancy and I have done lotsa times.  We'll find a left-over old Christmas (photo) card taken out at the salt and send it to (whomever).  Easy for the recipient to remember who you are and easy to enjoy yet another pic from the salt.

What's the mailing address again?
