Gov. Frank O’Bannon remained in critical condition this afternoon at the Chicago hospital where he has shown some signs of improvement.
O’Bannon, 73, has been in the intensive care unit of Northwestern Memorial Hospital since suffering a massive stroke Monday.
Northwestern spokeswoman Kelly Sullivan said this afternoon there was no change in the governor’s condition and his vital signs are stable.
A CT scan of O’Bannon’s brain showed Thursday that for the first time the swelling in his brain is diminishing, said hospital spokeswoman Kelly Sullivan. [Indianapolis Star]
