Heather's Story: sometime between Aug. 1 and Aug 2nd, Heather experienced a medical emergency at home. Doctors diagnosed Heather with a blood clot in the brain, broken ribs and a head injury amongst other injuries. On Sunday, August 2nd, surgery was performed to treat the clot in her brain. Doctors are very optimistic about her recovery. Her surgeons and doctors have asked that she not be stimulated at this time, so that her brain and body can recover. The best thing we can do is to leave her in the capable hands of her treating physicians and nurses who are taking very good care of her. She is currently on a breathing tube and is responding to some stimuli.
We know you want to know what you can do to help and support her. Leave her a message here! As she recovers, your messages and stories of support will aid in her recovery. We will try to post an update daily, and feel free to share this site with those that love and care about her as we all do!
