On Sunday November 27th Michele Krieg tripped and fell at home hitting her head against the wall very hard. Her husband, Paul Krieg, quickly identified that she was exhibiting stroke-like symptoms and called 911. Within minutes Michele was taken to Henry Mayo Memorial Hospital where a CAT Scan identified that she had suffered a hemorrhagic stroke. Opposite of the stroke she suffered in August of 2010 this type of stroke is cause by bleeding in the brain. The bleed is in the center of her brain on the left side causing paralysis on her right side. They quickly decided to begin thickening her blood to counteract the blood thinning medications she had been on since her first stroke. Their hope was that by thickening her blood and managing her heart rate that the bleeding in her brain would stop expanding. After a few hours a new CAT Scan confirmed that the hemorrhage had not grown any larger and she was then moved into the ICU to be closely monitored.
