The doctors drained blood from her brain cavity to relieve the pressure while keeping her in an induced coma. During this time, they stressed that this was a serious bleed. She’s had several CAT Scans and an Angiogram which showed the cause of the problem to be an abnormal vein attached to an artery that is located in the center of her brain (a rare abnormality that she was born with). Being in this location, it is extremely risky to perform any surgery.
Once the pressure in her brain cavity dropped enough they took Brooke in for an MRI to determine the next steps. It resulted in showing that she did not suffer any strokes, large or small, and over the next couple days she was taken off the meds inducing her coma.
Two weeks have now passed since Brooke's heartbreaking misfortune. Currently the doctors are still trying to dissolve the blood clot located in the center of her brain. Although she's has had some good test results and some progress, she still remains in a coma and is battling some new obstacles as well. Meanwhile, her loving family and boyfriend have remained at her side everyday supporting her.
Brooke along with her immediate family and boyfriend have lost a large amount of income from missing work and have acquired a lot of expenses for room and board out of town to stay near the hospital.
For those of you that have the pleasure of knowing Brooke, you would know that she is the most caring and compassionate person that is always supportive and worried about others.
We ask you to please help her and her loved ones in these difficult times in any way you can.
