Former Minnesota State University – Mankato football player, Issac Kolstad, has shown signs of improvement after he was treated for a blood clot last week. Kolsatd has been in a coma since he sustained head injury during an assault in downtown Mankato, Minn. roughly a month ago. Kolstad was treated for a deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot that can occur when someone is bedridden and blood does not flow properly.
The latest update on his CaringBridge site says doctors did discover a blood clot, which could be fatal if it embedded in his heart or lungs.
After a 9-year-old Roseville girl suffered a severe stroke last February, doctors said her chances of survival were slim. Now, even though Grace Alpers has one more surgery left, she has already defied the experts’ odds.
Two months ago, 23 patients at the St. Cloud Hospital were informed by letter that their bacterial infection was caused by a nurse stealing IV drugs. Now, one of those patients is angrily speaking out about her care and the alleged negative results.
