Donna Fargo - Happiest Girl In the Whole USA
Stan Silver has confirmed that Donna Fargo had a stroke on Monday, December 4th. Please put her on your prayer list. We will update you as her recovery progresses. Thank you.
UPDATE: Feb. 5, 2018
Donna has been working diligently on her recovery process with the rehab therapists 3-5 days a week. She is thankfully showing signs of improvement in her walking and speech, although she is not where she wants to be yet. Her handwriting and coordination still have a ways to go, and her level of numbness is a degree to which she’s really having problems adjusting to, but we are praying that these conditions will change for the better, given more therapy and some time.
Unfortunately, she recently took a hard fall, which is adding to her misery. We were back at the emergency room and while the tests showed no bleeding in the brain, and for that we’re very thankful, concussions can cause headaches, which she’s had constantly since the fall, along with blurred vision. On the weekends, it’s basically bed rest because of the fatigue factor. In the meantime, she will continue working with the great therapists for whom we’re so grateful.
Donna is trying to stay encouraged and work as hard as she can, and your notes, cards, and prayers mean a lot to her. She sends her best wishes and hopes you’re all doing well. Thank you again for your kindness. We both sincerely appreciate your concern and thoughtfulness.

This is the official update on Donna Fargo’s health status by Stan Silver:
Since her stroke on December 4, Donna has gone from ICU to a rehabilitation hospital. She is receiving speech therapy and undergoing occupational and physical therapy. She is also getting help with her handwriting. The stroke was on the left side of her brain, so her right side is affected more than her left.
She is expected to be released from the hospital next week and continue with every phase of the rehabilitation therapy. She is discouraged but trying to remain hopeful.
She appreciates your sweet words, prayers, and positive thoughts and well wishes. She wishes you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy 2018. For those of you who have ordered her cds, books, and 2018 calendars, etc., she appreciates your understanding that at this phase of her recovery, she is unable to autograph anything.

Like you, my heart is breaking that she is having to go through this. I know you're all concerned as I am, too, but we know that with her strong faith, determination, strength, positive thinking, the power of prayer, and our love will all work together to help her make a full recovery. I'll keep you posted as her recovery progresses. Thanks everybody.
