Zahava Recovery – September 6th 2011

Today I am happy to report that Zahava’s progress continues in a positive direction. She is now awake the entire day and we spend much of the time making jokes and laughing with her, which is wonderful. She still cannot talk due to the trachy in her throat, but she can communicate a lot using her face and head for many non-verbal expressions.

Her swallow is continuing to improve and we hope that eventually she will be able to have the trachy removed and can begin the process of rehabilitating her voice and eating food again (at the moment she eats through a tube in her stomach).

Zahava is slowly regaining some movement in the right side of her body, while the left side remains very active and continues to improve as she gains more specific control over her leg, arm and hand. Every day the physio works on her strength to move towards sitting, standing and eventually walking again.

We still have a long way to go but have high hopes that the current progress forwards will continue. It remains challenging while in hospital as Zahava requires constant help and medications, so we appreciate the prayers and well wishes continuing to help us get closer to bringing her home one day.

Thank you again for your love and thoughts,

Yaro and Phil

Hello Zahava,
you are climbing your way out of this quicksand hole.
You are showing amazing strength and will.
I am now an AIN (assistant in nursing) and when you
get out of hospital, it would be my privelege to help you in that interim period.

Hi, I have only just learned the news. I last spoke to Zahava before she went to Canada earlier this year. I haven’t had the internet for a few months, so hadn’t been in touch. I was wondering why Zahava hadn’t replied to the email I sent her earlier this week, and when I checked her website I discovered what had happened. Zahava was my assessor for Life Coaching and has given me so much support both with life coaching and personal difficulties. She is a very special person. My thoughts and prayers are with her, and with both of you.
