Bay Point’s unofficial mayor, Gloria Magleby, is reportedly doing well after suffering a stroke a few days ago.

I am a huge Gloria fan, so I wish her a speedy return home.

Here is what an email about her condition sent out today said:

Greetings, Everyone!

Pardon the email blast, but I wanted to update everyone on Glo’s condition, and this seemed the best way.  I will be responding to individual emails, and I will catch up on the phone calls, but this seemed the best way for now.

Glo is improving dramatically, as of last night.  In fact, as you know, they keep stroke patients only a few days in the hospital, and then move them to rehab right away, if all seems to be going in the right direction.  That is precisely what they have done with Glo.  Because she was able to start swallowing, and eating soft food (on her own, with both hands!), she has been transferred to:

Stonebrook Convalescent Center
4367 Concord Blvd.
Concord, CA
925-689-7457

I don’t know her room number, as I haven’t been to see her (or Sport) yet today.  But she is able to receive visitors for a short time, and she is beginning to get feisty!  She is far from being ‘whole’ again, but is making remarkable progress.  She should be there for some time, based on her progress.

Your thoughts and prayers have meant so much to us — to her, to her family, and to me personally.  I know she misses being active (already!), and she misses each and every one of you.

Again, if I have left anyone out of this email, please send this message on to people you think should know.

And again, thank you for all your good thoughts and prayers — keep them up.  She’s not out of the woods yet, but she is a fighter, and fighting is what she is doing now.  She’s ‘our Glo’ and is proving her strength and fortitude as I write this.

Regards,

Julie Nelson
