Tyrelly arrived at the Brian West campus in about 25 minutes, helping to minimize the damage she faced.

Tyrelly’s stroke was hemorrhagic. That is, a blood vessel in her brain ruptured, causing spontaneous bleeding.

After staying in the intensive care unit for a few days, Tillery engaged in inpatient care for 11 days, working with occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and speech therapists.

When asked what her goals were when starting treatment, Tillery, an employee of the NU Foundation and ambassador to the Alzheimer’s Association, said she would like to attend this year’s Cattlemen’s Ball in her hometown of Columbus. ..
