“The right side of my face started drooping, and I couldn’t get a sentence,” she says. “Immediately, I thought I was having a stroke.”

When Hailey arrived at the hospital, her face and arm were feeling better — but after a full night and a series of tests, it was determined she had had a transient ischemic attack, also known as a mini-stroke.

Doctors told Hailey that her recent COVID-19 case, travel and a change in birth control contributed to the mini-stroke.

She was discharged from the hospital the next day, but on a subsequent follow-up visit revealed that she had a hole in her heart of between 12 and 13 mm.

After the diagnosis, Hailey eventually underwent surgery to repair the hole in her heart – and according to her, the operation went “very smoothly.”

“The most important thing for me is that I feel really relieved that we were able to figure everything out, that we were able to close it, and that I would be able to get past this really scary situation and just live my life,” she says.
