    If has been confirmed that she did have a stroke on her Brain Stem. They still aren't sure what caused it but they are now thinking that she may have a hole in her heart. They are going to put a camera down her throat tomorrow morning to see if they can find anything wrong with her heart.

    She is still having issues talking a little but it seems like it might be getting better. She is also having trouble with her vision in her right eye along with some dexterity issues with her right arm. Part of her mouth, tounge and throat are still numb but is seems she is getting a little sensation back.

    Thanks again for all of your prayers and thoughts.

    They paroled her today and she is sleeping (instead of cooking me dinner) :( She still has some vision issues and speech issues but at least she is home. They still aren't sure what caused it but they expect full or almost full recovery. So ya'll might want to tell her to get busy cooking and the laundry is starting to stack up (She won't let me do it) (I have done it for her in the past) :) I gurantee she won't eat my cooking.

    Thanks again for all your thoughts prayers and phone calls.

    Doc
