A stroke from out of the blue

Column by Hal Walter

Health – October 2008 – Colorado Central Magazine

THE WORDS SEEMED completely out of context: “Amy had a stroke last night.”

The information, through received in a local coffee shop, came from a reliable source, so I had to believe it was true. The details were sketchy, but from what I gathered, she had fallen out of bed, her partner Gary Ziegler had recognized that she was having a stroke, and called 911. An ambulance had come to Bear Basin Ranch and taken Amy to Parkview Medical Center in Pueblo.
