    Oh you poor things. What a terrible shock you've all been through. I've never heard of this kind of reaction to drugs before. Please let us know how Gabby recovers. Wishing you all the very best and an easy recovery for Gabby from here on in.

    Welcome Home Gabby, so sorry to read about your bumps in recovery, hope you are doing well now. Be strong and take it one day at a time. You are in my prayers.

    Hi Donna, hope you are ok. Things like this often get thrown our way to challenge us, but if you believe it, all hopes and prayers should hopefully relieve it.

    This must have been so frightening for all of you. My best wishes and prayers that Gabby makes a full recovery soon and that it's a smoother road from here on out.

    Hope Gabby is improving every day. I can only imagine how frightening this must have been for you. Take care of yourself too Donna. If anyone offers help right now, a meal, the offer of doing some housework, take it!

    I hope Gabby is doing much better by now and is continuing to gain all her feeling back. I'm so sorry she, and the rest of your family, has had to go through such a scary situation after what would have been, and hopefully still will be, such a successful surgery.
