After enjoying gradual but sustained improvement since his 2012 stroke, fan artist Stu Shiffman is again having serious problems. A week ago he had a fall, and Tom Whitmore reported on Stu’s CaringBridge page that he did not regain consciousness after surgery. Doctors think there has been more damage. Stu is in the Neurological ICU at Harborview in Seattle.
This was quite unexpected, as Stu had recovered to the point that just a week earlier he’d been able to use a powered wheelchair for the first time since his stroke.
