A statement issued over the weekend from Norman’s wife, and musical partner, Nancy Blake reads:
Norman Blake arrived at Erlanger Baroness Campus in downtown Chatanooga, Tenn. on Saturday July 21. Medical specialists diagnosed a TIA, or temporary lack of blood flow to a part of his brain. A procedure was performed to correct the narrowing in one of his arteries.
There were no signs of a heart attack, stroke or permanent brain damage. Erlanger physicians expect Mr. Blake will discharged within a few days and have a full recovery after some quite time at home to recuperate.
Nancy spoke quite highly of the hospital team…
“We have big love in our heart for the Erlanger staff who cared for Norman.”
… as did the man himself.
“My treatment could not have been better.”
