Record Herald editor Tom Mills suffers stroke

Tom Mills, long-time editor of the Greensburg Record Herald suffered a stroke last weekend.

Record Herald publisher Walt Gorin reported Monday morning that Tom was in a U of L stroke ICU unit.  His speech seems to be a little better and he has rested some. They had to put in an NG tube because he failed a swallow test. They will work with him on that tomorrow. He also has bronchitis so he has coughed a lot today but they finally gave him some cough meds and that has helped. The one positive is that he has not had any pain through this.

He had a stroke on each side of the brain. The one on the right side did not affect him. The one on the left side left the right side of body weak and speech garbled. But the doctors think both will improve.

But good news. Friday morning, Walt updated the report to say that Tom is being moved out of ICU today.

UPDATE — Walt Gorin just sent an email about noon today (Friday) that Tom will be coming home today.
