- The latest update from Libbi Perry Stuffle on Tracy Stuffle’s stroke recovery: “We are at a new for real “Rehab Center!!” Tracy was moved here this evening. It’s very aggressive therapy 6 days a week! He will be off on Sundays. It’s in Lebanon, but it’s not a nursing home, but a real rehab facility! Please pray he will be able to tolerate at least 3 hours or more of therapy per day! I really feel this is a total God thing! He can have visitors of close friends and family, but only after 5pm til 9pm daily. We ask that it remain close friends and family only. He’s gonna be so tired after working hard everyday. Please pray that the pneumonia will totally be destroyed and never come back!!! Pray for Tracy’s strength and endurance!! Pray he has no more seizures!”
