Beau Biden suffers apparent mild stroke, doctors say

Washington (CNN) - Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden - the son of Vice President Joe Biden - has suffered what doctors believe to be a mild stroke, according to the hospital.

Biden "was admitted this morning to Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware after having what we believe to be a mild stroke, according to a written statement from Dr. Timothy Gardner, medical director of the Center for Heart and Vascular Surgery at Christiana Care Health System in Delaware.

"He is in good spirits and talking with his family at the hospital. He is fully alert, in stable condition and has full motor and speech skills. We expect him to make a complete recovery."

    check out mitochondrial disease and other metabolic causes, especially if he is on cholesterol-lowering medications that decrease CoQ10.

    Why is someone wasting time reporting on this, he is no different from anyone else, right? Get some real news, try something positive for change.

    Joe had a stroke when he was about his son's age. Maybe some

    Very sorry to hear that.
