NH South Pole evacuee making her way back to US
NH woman evacuated from South Pole after stroke says she's making her way back to US
By The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) ' A sick New Hampshire woman who was evacuated from the South Pole to New Zealand says she's making her way back to the United States.

Engineer Renee-Nicole Douceur (dee-SUHR') said Sunday night she has left New Zealand and landed in Australia. She'll pass through San Francisco and Washington before arriving at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore on Monday night local time.

Douceur was evacuated two months after she began experiencing vision, language and memory problems while working at the National Science Foundation's South Pole research station. Doctors believe she had a stroke, though she's expected to recover almost completely with proper treatment.



She has said she should be in Baltimore until Thursday and doesn't know when she'll return to Seabrook, a coastal town 40 miles southeast of Concord (KAHN'-kard).
