Default Gary Kubiak in hospital after collapse

This sounds scary

Kubiak, who has been at a Houston hospital since Sunday night, was treated with an IV medicine -- tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) -- designed to break up blood clots, per medical sources.

Doctors are conducting tests Monday to determine whether he could have suffered a stroke.

Jesus, it's really not a good week to be an AFC coach.

Thoughts and prayers out to Mr. Kubiak.

Geez, this went from dehydration to blood clot to stroke. What next?

Technically the term apparently is transient ischemic attack (TIA) - they presumably gave him the anti-clotting drugs because he was exhibiting stroke like symptoms

A mini-stroke officially is called a transient ischemic attack. TIA often serves as a warning stroke. It occurs when blood clots briefly block an artery and interrupt blood flow to part of the brain. In such cases, the body’s defenses act on their own to dissolve the clot. Symptoms of such attacks are similar to those of a stroke but don’t last as long.

Dr. James Grotta, chairman of neurology at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, said patients suspected of a stroke or TIA typically remain at the hospital to determine the cause and appropriate medication going forward. About one in three people who suffer a TIA eventually has a full stroke, often within a year.

This is serious - now the Texans are faced with whether they can fire a head coach without appearing to be insensitive to someone with what may or may not be a significant medical issue going forward who is going on blood thinners and may have an underlying medical condition that caused the clot to form

I had been hoping Kubiak might get canned and be brought in as Steelers OC in 2014 - if he gets fired now my guess is he will be getting his health issues addressed next year and be out of coaching

I heard Kubiak is improving. I believe he is out this weekend, though. Hope he continues to make progress and recover. This is a serious matter.
