CORPUS CHRISTI -- Councilwoman Priscilla Leal's daughter Dina said her mother is recovering from her stroke slowly but surely.
After suffering a stroke last month, Leal is not yet able to walk according to her daughter, but she's begun to speak a few words.
Dina Leal said her mother can say the words "yes," "no" and "okay."
After she was released from a Harlingen hospital, Leal has been staying at a local hospital where she's doing in-patient therapy.
Leal's children and husband have all been pitching in taking care of her while she's recovering in the hospital.
Leal is in the last ten months of her fourth and final term representing District 3.
Longtime CCISD board member Lucy Rubio is expected to announce that she will be running for Leal's seat.
