On April 1 Allison Harbison had a seizure. She was transported to Tyler by helicopter and the doctors found a brain bleed. She stayed at Christus Mother Frances in Tyler from April 1 to April 15, with most of her hospital stay being spent in ICU. She returned home and was making good progress when she had another seizure in April 26. She was again transported by helicopter to Tyler and the doctors discovered an aneurysm. Because of the size and type of aneurysm the doctors transferred her to UT Southwestern in Dallas on April 27. On April 28 the doctors were able to repair the aneurysm by placing a pipeline in her brain. As of now she is making steady progress but she is still in ICU in Dallas. Allison and her family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support.

Judge Harbison has been a dedicated public servant of Shelby County since 2001. She was County Clerk for 14 years and has been County Judge since 2015.
