Binti Lee Will Never Speak the Same After a Houston Hospital Misdiagnosed Her Stroke

A slick jolt of adrenaline rushed through Brown's veins and his heart thwacked in his chest as he grabbed his phone and, struggling to keep his voice level, told the emergency dispatcher that his girlfriend had collapsed.

"Is she awake?" the woman asked, clicking information into a computer as she spoke.

"She's awake, but, but she can't verbalize anything. I don't know what's wrong," Brown said, voice shaking.

The ambulance arrived at their apartment on Allen Parkway within ten minutes and a bevy of EMTs gathered around Lee, asking her questions and ignoring Brown. They loaded Lee onto a stretcher and carried her out the door as Brown called for them to wait while he pulled on a shirt and grabbed her purse. He put on the first thing he could find, a muscle shirt, and ran out to the street, Lee's purse in hand, but they were gone.

By the time Brown tracked her down, Lee was in the emergency department at Houston Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center with doctors clustered around her bed. Brown studied her face. His stomach twisted when he saw her eyes, flat and blank. "She was just gone," he says now. "She wasn't there." Her hair was a mess, and her face looked drawn and washed-out. Drool trickled out of the right side of her mouth. Brown stepped past the doctors and wiped it away, and then he started asking questions.
