What Happened To Bob Doran (Updated)

Posted By on Sat, May 18, 2013 at 11:02 PM

Update 5/28: Bob was transferred last week from Santa Rosa Memorial to the General Hospital campus of St. Joseph Hospital. His wife, Amy, said Tuesday he’s receiving intensive physical and speech therapy and that he’s "getting a little bit better every day." To send your regards to Bob, go to his Facebook page.

Update 5/19: Bob was moved out of the intensive care unit on Sunday, and his family has been told that in the next few days he'll be moved to a rehabilitation unit at Santa Rosa Memorial.

Original post:

North Coast Journal Arts and Culture Editor Bob Doran had a stroke at HSU today while photographing graduation. Travis Turner was there, recognized the signs of stroke and called 911 for an ambulance. Travis also called Amy, Bob's wife, who met them at St. Joseph Hospital. After preliminary tests, Bob was transported by air to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.

Amy drove down and is with him tonight. His family has been notified. He is conscious and receiving care but we'll all know more tomorrow, after an additional CT scan and further evaluation, about the extent of his injuries.
