Re: Dusty had a "mini-stroke"

Mini, of course, just means small- no major deficits. Sometimes, mini strokes are called TIA's (transient ischemic episodes), not sure if Dusty had that or not. Someone recognized it very early on, because he was still in the hospital, and it was treated, most probably with some "clot busting" drugs, and thankfully resolved. Dusty is going to be on some heavy duty blood thinners from here on out.
That is just enough detail to answer my question and make me only a little light-headed. Thanks
Very good to hear they caught it early and can keep an eye on it.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
