Keillor: Minor stroke is reminder of mortality

Posted on September 17th, 2009 by Kelley Luckstein

Humorist and author Garrison Keillor writes that a minor stroke he suffered last week left him "essentially unscathed, though touched by mortality."

 

Keillor drove himself to a St. Paul hospital after feeling ill, then was taken to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. He spent four nights at Saint Marys Hospital before being released last Friday.

 

In a column for Salon.com, 67-year-old Keillor writes that when he left Saint Marys, "a neurologist shook my hand and said: 'I hope you know how lucky you are.'"
