“On Friday, I wasn’t feeling well, so I went to the hospital to get checked out. I didn’t want to go – I didn’t think I had to – but @giselefetterman insisted, and as usual, she was right. The good news is I’m feeling much better + I’m well on my way to a full recovery”:

Fetterman said the stroke was caused by “a clot from [his] heart being in an A-fib rhythm for too long”:

And he said doctors told him he “didn’t suffer any cognitive damage” and he’s on the way to a “full recovery”:

NEWS: Statement From Lt. Governor John Fetterman
Lancaster, PA – Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman released the
following statement from Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital:
“On Friday, I wasn’t feeling well, so I went to the hospital to get checked out. I
didn’t want to go – I didn’t think I had to – but Gisele insisted, and as usual, she
was right. I hadn’t been feeling well, but was so focused on the campaign that I
ignored the signs and just kept going. On Friday it finally caught up with me. I
had a stroke that was caused by a clot from my heart being in an A-fib rhythm
for too long. Fortunately, Gisele spotted the symptoms and got me to the
hospital within minutes. The amazing doctors here were able to quickly and
completely remove the clot, reversing the stroke, they got my heart under
control as well. It’s a good reminder to listen to your body and be aware of the
signs.
“The good news is I’m feeling much better, and the doctors tell me I didn’t suffer
any cognitive damage. I’m well on my way to a full recovery. So I have a lot to
be thankful for. They’re keeping me here for now for observation, but I should
be out of here sometime soon. The doctors have assured me that I’ll be able to
get back on the trail, but first I need to take a minute, get some rest, and
recover. There’s so much at stake in this race, and I’m going to be ready for the
hard fight ahead.
“But our campaign isn’t slowing down one bit, and we are still on track to win
this primary on Tuesday, and flip this Senate seat in November. Thanks for all
the support, and please get out there and vote.”
John and Gisele also released this video from Penn Medicine Lancaster
General Hospital on Sunday.
The kick-ass staff and doctors at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health are
working closely and constantly with our campaign team to ensure there is only
one voice speaking on behalf of John. They have been extremely supportive
and helpful over the course of the past couple days.
