Update on Susan Green

I received the following e-mail today:

As many fans recently learned, wrestling legend Susan Green was hospitalized with an extremely serious staph infection following a surgical procedure several months ago.

She is better, but as we all know, staph infections can be very serious. Susan has been in the hospital since Feb 5th. Doctors discovered the infection while looking at a stomach & intestine problem and the staph infection that was around her back area.

She is making progress. Early on, the doctors had said that her condition was critical. Although her condition is still very serious, she is improving.
While she is no longer critical, I want to stress the seriousness of this. The infection has affected her left side and she is partially paralized on that side. She does physical theraphy every day for about 3 hours, and there is every hope that she will regain her full mobility. She still has a long way to go, but she is doing her best. And anyone who has been lucky enough to know Susan knows just what her "best" means that she won't give up, and she won't give in.
Please pray for her complete recovery.

Also, it would be very encouraging for her to receive cards and letters, etc sent to her in care of:
