“It was just a feeling that I was, like, I never want to experience that ever again,” she said. “I mean, it was so terrifying, so jarring, so discombobulating in every single way that you could imagine.

“I'm just really grateful that I was able to have had amazing doctors, and nurses, and people that helped me get to the bottom of what actually happened.

"I look back at it and it could've been so much worse. So many worse things could have happened in that moment,” Hailey continued.

Following her admission to hospital in March, Hailey said: “On Thursday morning (March 10), I was sitting at breakfast with my husband when I started having stroke-like symptoms and was taken to the hospital.

“They found I had suffered a very small blood clot to my brain, which caused a small lack of oxygen, but my body had passed it on its own and I recovered completely within a few hours,” she continued.

"Although this was definitely one of the scariest moments I've ever been through, I'm home now and doing well, and I'm so grateful and thankful to all the amazing doctors and nurses who took care of me.”
