“She has blood on her brain” are terrifying words a mother never wants to hear. The emergency room team prepared Talia for the helicopter ride to Fargo, Michelle and Alfonso Hay immediately got in their car to drive the 80 miles from Grand Forks to Fargo.
Talia Hay started her 7th day of her freshman year of high school walking down the hall to class. All of a sudden her head started pounding with excruciating pain. When she got to the nurse’s office, Talia became unresponsive and incoherent. She was rushed by ambulance to the hospital in Grand Forks. After a CT scan, they found Talia had blood on her brain. She needed a specialist. In Fargo.
