The model also shared a lighter moment, saying that emergency workers overestimated her age while in the ambulance. “There was actually a funny moment where they were calling the hospital to explain what they were attending and they were like, ‘I have a 30-year-old woman,’ and I was like, ‘I’m 25.’ I had to make sure they weren’t five years old. For no reason, you know.”

Healy said that by the time she arrived at Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, California, she had not had any symptoms. She said they had scans that showed she “suffered from a small blood clot in my brain, which they described and categorized as something called a TIA.”

according to National Library of Medicine, TIA, or transient ischemic attack, also known as ‘mini-stroke’. It occurs when blood supply to part of the brain is briefly blocked. Symptoms include numbness or weakness – especially on one side of the body, difficulty speaking, dizziness, loss of balance, and difficulty walking.
