On Monday, March 19th, Crystal suffered a subarachnoid hemmorhagic stroke. She was rushed to the emergency room via ambulance in Rapid City, SD. From Rapid, Crystal was life flighted to Sioux Falls, SD.
Currently, Crystal has 3 anneurisms in her brain. The doctors have gone in and "coiled" the bleeding anneurism and plan to go back in a few weeks from now to coil the other two anneurisms when she is stronger.
The doctors expect Crystal to be in the hospital for almost a month. They will continue to drain blood and cerebral spinal fluid via shunt for up to two weeks.
The doctors anticipate (with this type of injury) her brain will try to throw strokes/produce vasospasms. We are hoping and praying this is not the case.
