OKMULGEE, Okla. — Larry Porter is a police officer with the Muscogee Nation Lighthorse Tribal Police Department. When he woke up on Sept. 1, he couldn’t move.
Porter was taken to Hillcrest Hospital and admitted to the Intensive Care Unit, where he remained for three weeks before he was moved to the Kaiser Rehabilitation Center on the Hillcrest medical campus.
On Friday, Porter came home.
What’s next for the police officer who was in the hospital for 6 weeks?
“Christmas shopping,” he said, “I’m definitely ready to go Christmas shopping for my kids and get Christmas decorations up. Christmas is my favorite time of the year so I’m ready.”
When Porter was finally diagnosed a couple of weeks ago, he says doctors told him it was a spinal stroke that caused his paralysis.

Spinal cord stroke is a rare type of stroke with compromised blood flow to any region of spinal cord owing to occlusion or bleeding, leading to irreversible neuronal death.
I have learned something new today.
Did he get the clot shot recently?
Considering that he is a police officer I am willing to be that he most likely did.
An ex-deputy sheriff came into the shop a couple of weeks ago in a wheelchair because he had suffered a spinal stroke. He had hopes to go to the Shepard Center in Atlanta when Covid hit.
Isn’t it odd that the material embalmers keep finding in blood vessels that never appeared before 2020 is still being found, in even more people?
They have found similar material in the past, but it was in only a few people annually.
I hope he makes a full recovery.
