On January 23rd Natalie suffered from a brain bleed which reoccured in the same area as her first one 11 years ago. She was sent via ambulance to duluth and spent 2 days in the neuro icu. She's currently on the neuro floor at st. Mary's awaiting an angiogram and further testing. The ct scan showed where the bleed was but not why. Her neurosurgeon is very concerned and is adamant we find out why she's had not one but two in the last decade in the same spot. The ct also showed her right carotid artery is completely blocked but the doctors say it has nothing to do with the bleed and will have to be sorted out after we get the bleed under control. She has just started a new job and has insurance but no paid leave. The last bleed she was out for 3 weeks and could only go back part time for a while. She would never ask for help from anyone. But right now she desperately needs it. Natelie also known lovingly as mama nats to so many has been there through thick and thin for many people throughout the years. She's so generous and willing to help anyone in need. Now its her time of need. We're really hoping that we can ease her mind so she can have a better recovery.
