Tuesday, May 17, 2011 Shelly arrived @ Bon Secours St. Francis Medical Center to have a spinal fusion of C5-7. Surgery was successful but complecations quickly arose and Shelly had a medullar brain stem stroke @ 1:00 PM Wednesday, May 18th. James was with her and the stroke team was quickly called. The stroke appears to have affected her right side of her face, arm and leg.  Today it also affected her left arm and leg.  At this time she is not able to stand or walk without full assistance but she is able to eat.  Last night she tasted the rainbow and had a bag of skittles.  The staff @ St. Francis has been spectular!


  1. Thoughts and prayers are with Shelly and her family. I hope for a quick recovery. Shelly you are one tough lady! You will be rock climbing in no time. Hugs to the sweetest lady I know :)

  2. Love you Shelly, and am praying for you.
