GEORGETOWN, Del. - The family of Sussex County Councilman Sam Wilson spoke with WBOC Monday, just three days after Wilson suffered a stroke.
“We’re very appreciative of all our friends,” said his wife, Helen Wilson. “And the EMS were very helpful.”
According to Wilson’s wife, the councilman fell on Friday, while suffering from a stroke. He was taken to Christiana Medical Center for treatment. Helen Wilson said her husband is currently doing “just fine,” but will have a long recovery. His therapy was expected to begin on Monday.
“He’s bubbling to get back to council,” she said. “But it’s not going to be tomorrow.”
The 77-year-old councilman underwent open heart surgery in November of 2014.
