Sitting in their living room, this Mishawaka couple looks like any other married couple, but they are not.
Nine months ago, Julie McNamee suffered a stroke.
At just 47 years old, the mother of four was an avid runner, and always a healthy eater.
After five weeks of in-patient rehab, Julie has come a long way but she still has seizures and movement problems.
So now the McNamee's are going to try a therapy not available for stroke patients in Michiana.
They are going to Chicago where she will undergo forty treatments in a hyperbaric chamber.
Julie said, “Healing, it's an oxygen chamber that allows healing and blood flow so hopefully that will help, I've lost all my movement in my left arm so hopefully it will regenerate some movement.” Mark said, “It should strengthen her, at the minimum it should strengthen her muscles. At the maximum it should give her some cognitive regeneration.”
The McNamee's leave Monday for Chicago and we will be following Julie's story and let you know whether the oxygen therapy helps her recovery.
