Gudgel thought if she lay back down, she would feel better. She didn’t. Scared, she contacted her supervisor who recognized Gudgel’s slurred speech as something critically wrong and called 911. Emergency medical services (EMS) from Homer Glen arrived at her home and rushed her to the closest primary stroke center, Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox.
