WASHINGTON, D.C. (Sept. 23, 2015)-- Former Indiana First Lady Susan Bayh had a frightening summer. On June 18, she woke up with an excruciating headache that lasted four days. A doctor initially diagnosed it as a stress headache, but her son, Beau, insisted doctors look further and confronted his mother when she appeared to delay a much needed CAT Scan.
It turns out, Beau was right. Bayh was diagnosed with a tumor. Fortunately it wasn’t cancerous, but she was forced to have brain surgery in July.
Today she is recovering, but she’s learned some important lessons. She shared them with CBS4’s Debby Knox. See the interview in the video above.
