Finally enough was enough, and Monday June 12 she had a CT scan done. There were no clear results, so they proceded with a spinal tap which showed blood in her spinal fluids. She was immediately sent by ambulance to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee. They ran their own tests with no clear findings and decided to do an angiogram to get a clear picture of any possible problems. She was scheduled to have this test done by Thursday but on the morning of June 14 the neurology team noticed some sagging in her eye and cheek and immediately took Lisa to have the angiogram. From there Paul received the news the angiogram showed a bleeding brain aneurysm and Lisa was being taken to emergency surgery to repair the bleed.
Surgery was successful and the bleeding was stopped but that is not the end of Lisa's story. Due to having such an invasive surgery some vessels began to spasm which puts Lisa at a high risk for strokes. She is currently being monitored to make sure those vessels stop having spasms. Lisa will be monitored closely in the ICU for the next 7-10 days and from there will be released to a hospital room for at least 2 weeks to continue monitoring. From this point there will be therapy scheduled to furher help Lisa recover.
Lisa and Paul have 3 children to raise. Doctors have said that Lisa's return to work will be very far down the road (if she is ever able to return). With all the costs any donations to help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your help and support during hard time.
