Elliott went into the hospital because he had been experiencing eye problems, and what his doctor thought was a blood clot was actually something called a carotid cavernous fistula - basically an abnormal arterial growth. During surgery, there were complications. One of the parts of the procedure is to flow a binding agent through his arteries, what they refer to as super glue. The super glue leaked into his brain, which resulted in a series of problems he is experiencing now, including a lack of ability to speak and the need for intubation.
