Ariel Sharon suffers stroke

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has suffered a stroke, just a few days since suffering a TIA last month. TIA's are often precursors of strokes. Coretta Scott King may have suffered from TIA's prior to her stroke, and Senator Harry Reid of Nevada suffered a TIA earlier this year.

Recently, we've highlighted Dick Clark's comeback from stroke and Tedy Bruschi's return to the New England Patriots. There's not much news yet on Sharon's condition, but it is a good bet that it will be long and difficult. He may suffer from aphasia and paralysis. While it's too early to know for sure, he may never be able to reassume his duties as Prime Minister, which have been transferred to Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.
