DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Volusia County Councilwoman Heather Post was apparently hospitalized for four days for a blood clot in her head before being discharged on Thursday, she said in a social media posting.

"And on the 4th day she was freed!!," Post wrote on her Facebook page at 3:45 p.n. Thursday, along with a picture showing her being wheeled out the front entranceway of Florida Hospital. "Thank you to everyone who expressed their concerns & sent prayers & well wishes!!. I am so blessed. In short, I had a blood clot in my head (TIA) & they were able to get it immediately. The staff at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center was AMAZING!"

It was the last of three such posts by Post.

Earlier Thursday, Post posted, "Got tired of sitting around. Finishing out my last morning in ICU getting back into routine. Even convinced someone to have a business mtg in my room! My medical incident has passed & I’m back at it."

In her initial post at 10:29 am. Tuesday, Post posted from her hospital bed, "Just taking a slight detour in ICU. 17 hours later. Nothing can hold me down. I’ll be back stronger than ever in a few days."
