Patterico's Pontifications


Pray for Mandy Nagy aka Liberty Chick

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 5:04 pm

My friend Mandy Nagy aka Liberty Chick had a stroke yesterday. I got a call from a mutual friend a few minutes ago. William Jacobson posts that Mandy had brain surgery today to relieve pressure and pulled through OK. Please keep Mandy in your thoughts and prayers.

  1. Mandy is not just my co-defendant in a frivolous lawsuit. She is a rock in a turbulent sea; someone you can call for a level-headed point of view when things get crazy. This is horrible; I hope she is OK.

  6. I had a mild stroke almost two years ago, and I can tell you that it is truly terrifying. I lost most control over the left side of my body and it was a nighmare. FOrtunately for me, therapy gave me back my left hand. But I still walk slowly, and painfully, with a cane and that’s getting worse with time because I’m losing control over my left leg. I’m planning to buy a wheelchair soon.

  11. Get well soon Mandy.

  12. You need a stroke like you need a hole in the head. On the bright side, a pair of shoes lasts longer than it used to. She looks young in her pictures. That bodes well for her recovery. The body and the brain do recover; faster on the uphill side than on the downhill side of senescence. If she needs advice about orthotics, extra-depth shoes, and ambulatory aids, I’m there for her.

  16. Mandy stands out as a genuine person in a field full of weirdos and hacks. She’s a brave journalist, and I’m sorry she and her family are going through this.

    Steven, I am sorry to hear about your difficulties.

    Dustin (7f67e8)

  17. It is nice to see you, MayBee! You too, Dustin — although MayBee is even more of a stranger than you. I’m sure Mandy will appreciate everyone’s support.

  18. Just seems too young for that type of thing. Best wishes.

  19. O God of heavenly powers, by the might of your command you drive away from our bodies all sickness and all infirmity: Be present in your goodness with your servant Mandy, that her weakness may be banished and her strength restored; and that, her health being renewed, she may bless your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    MayBee (3e5aa3)

  27. I pity the stroke that thinks it is tough enough to take out Mandy. She’ll be back giving ’em hell before we know it.
