Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. On Friday June 23, 2017, Kathy had a stroke while at her office. She was taken to Baptist Hospital where she had a 3 hour surgery to remove a clot in her right middle cerebral artery - M1 segment. The normal protocol of clot buster (TPA) did not work on her 100% occluded artery as we would have hoped so the surgery was more extensive and lengthy. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
