Chris’s Story

Site created on May 1, 2021

For those of you who do not know, Chris suffered a stroke on Thursday April 29, 2021.  She was transported to the local hospital in Abingdon and then moved to Bristol Regional Medical Center for evaluation by the neurology team there.  She will likely be in the hospital this week and this is the site where Steve will keep everyone updated.  We will be setting up visitation schedules for hospital visits to help relieve Steve as well as other help we can provide as Chris begins her rehab process and eventually comes home.

Folks:. We met with Dr Shonka at UVA today with great results.  A) He was happy with her incision and she is now free to take showers, etc. B) The really good news is that she had two tumors, both of which were not cancerous, yippee!  So we are in the clear surgery wise.  Next stop is a visit 5 weeks from now to check her hormone level.  There is a good chance the right side of the thyroiditis will provide enough hormones that additional medication will not be needed.  Thanks, Steve
