Mickelson posted about the stroke on his Facebook page

Jan Mickelson, host of a radio talk program and a persistent interviewer of Republican presidential candidates running for office in Iowa, is a pain in the side of liberals.

“On Saturday, 11/21, we were trying out our new Power Pressure Cooker XL when I started slurring my words and got a bit dizzy. Suzy sat me down, called 911, and Ankeny Paramedics responded immediately.

They took me to Mercy Hospital where they confirmed I’d just had a stroke. I had TPA (tissue plasminogen activator) which works by dissolving the blood clot as well as a relatively new neurological surgery that removes the clot from the artery.

I was life-flighted to the University of Iowa Hospitals as they are the only facility in the state which performs the procedure. “I’m recovering and doing well. Suzy and Scott are with me. Please pray for me.”
