Nerves.....or a stroke?

Sunday night after the Grammy Awards, KCBS reporter Serene Branson was giving on on-air recap and her words were complete gibberish that were unintelligible.  Many people were concerned that she may have suffered a stroke on the air.  However, she was examined by paramedics at the scene and her vital signs were normal.  Some people were critical of her going home and not getting a second opinion.

KCBS management has said that Branson has now been checked out again and that she is "feeling fine."  However, according to the station's website, there is no indication on when she will be returning to work.

We discussed this on the morning show today, and a listener provided us with the guidelines to the signs of a stroke.

REMEMBER THE WORD "FAST"
 
F - FACE - ASK PER TO SMILE - DOES ONE SIDE DROOP?
A - ARMS - ASK THE PERSON TO RAISE BOTH ARMS - DOES ONE DRIFT DOWNWARD?
S - SPEECH - ASK PERSON TO REPEAT A SIMPLE PHRASE - IS THE SPEECH SLURRED OR STRANGE?
T - TIME - CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY IF ANY OF THE ABOVE
 
OTHERS:  SUDDNESS OF ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:
 
NUMBNESS OR WEAKNESS OF FACE, ARM OR LEG ESPECIALLY ON ONE SIDE OF THE BODY
CONFUSION, TROUBLE SPEAKING OR UNDERSTANDING
TROUBLE SEEING IN ONE OR BOTH EYES
TROUBLE WALKING, DIZZINESS, LOSS OF BALANCE OR COORDINATION
SEVERE HEADACHE WITH NO KNOW CAUSE
