The family of District 3 Corpus Christi Council member Priscilla Leal said she has suffered another stroke. The Leal family notified Mayor Nelda Martinez about her condition saying it was discovered subsequent to a doctor’s visit, but is less severe than thefirst stroke she suffered in January.
Leal’s relatives said they anticipate she will be hospitalized later today. The Leal family has indicated the four term Council member previously underwent emergency surgery to remove a blood clot and implant a stent in her brain, following a severe stroke. She has been undergoing rehabilitation.
Corpus Christi Mayor Nelda Martinez has informed Council members and is asking the community to keep Mrs. Leal and her family in their thoughts and prayers.
