Karen had a stroke on Sunday, January 8, 2017 in Ponte Vedra, FL while having lunch with Gary, Barb and John Huellmantel. The ambulance got her to the hospital within 30 minutes of the event (AWESOME) and gave her meds to reverse the effects. She had four blood clots in her brain, 2 on each side. She has been in the hospital healing ever since and has shown awesome progress!!!! Doctors found another blood clot in her heart on January 11, 2017 and will start blood thinners to prevent this one from going to the brain and causing another stroke. A setback yes, but nothing that Karen can't overcome!!! Karen is strong and progressing awesomely each minute. We need your PRAYERS!!!! Please don't hold back!!!! We love you all and thank you for loving Karen and her family!!!
