On Tuesday, January 26, 2021, Ben had a stroke at home and was transported by ambulance to St. Jude's Medical Hospital in Fullerton, CA. His blood pressure was low and heart beats weak and irregular. It was discovered, through CT scans and MRI, that he had cerebral artery stenosis (blocked artery); the same disease he had in 2016 that required implanting a stent in the blocked cranial artery. A second stent was implanted on Thursday, January 28, and a Pacemaker to regulate his heart beats. He is recovering well and vitals are returning to normal levels.
