LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A 16-year-old Douglas County girl is spending this summer working on her skills. But instead of brushing up on courses like other high school students, Molly Ogden is relearning how to walk and talk after suffering a stroke last fall.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/19E3yN9 ) that Ogden's mother found her the morning of Nov. 5 in the bathroom unable to speak, and the right side of her face was drooping. She was rushed to Lawrence Memorial Hospital and then taken to the Kansas University Hospital, where she was placed in a coma and a clot was removed. Doctors said her prospects for survival were slim.
After stints in a rehabilitation hospital in Nebraska, Ogden returned home in February and was able to return to school in April.
