Back in June of 2018, Jacky Dean went to bed with a sore eye. Then when she woke up, she realized she couldn't open the cupboards and that her face was drooping. Jacky had a stroke, caused by a blood clot in her left side. Luckily, she was able to get medical attention right away.

However, that meant she had to be in the hospital for weeks working on her recovery. When she got the okay to go home for a weekend, she figured she'd surprise her children who were thrilled to have mom home.
