THERESA "TERRI" Robinson ignored the pitfalls of working full time as a health-care manager while attending Lincoln University full time to earn a master's degree in human services. She smoked. She ate salty, fatty foods. She was in her 50s but didn't think about her family's high-risk medical history. Until one night in late March 2012, when she suffered a brain aneurysm. "Finding my mother lying on the floor was one of the most devastating moments of my life," said Robinson's son, Michael, 26, who called 9-1-1 in time to save her. Robinson, 58, who lives in Germantown, said she should have seen the warning signs long before she lost her 25-year health-care career and nearly lost her life.

The South Philly rowhouse where Pat Martino resides has changed drastically from the home he returned to after undergoing neurosurgery in 1980. His parents, who lived there at the time, have passed away, as have most traces of their personalities and decor. In their place are Asian-inspired artworks (and a number of pig figurines) reflecting the taste of Martino's Japanese-born wife, Ayako, and the occasional concert poster advertising significant dates in the legendary guitarist's own career.

Joni Mitchell: Felled by aneurysm? A mystery continues, even more mysterious-er. AYK, iconic genius songstress Joni Mitchell was found unconscious in her L.A. home on March 31 and whisked to the UCLA Medical Center, where she's been ever since. What no-one has said so far is why. Early Friday morning, website Showbiz411 reported the cause was a brain aneurysm, and Mitchell is now in rehab and recovering, slowly. The source for the article is said to be a Mitchell friend. Few major outlets, and lots of minor ones, have run with the story: it's based on one anonymous source and can't be confirmed.

Wayne Gretzky is expected to be in the lineup tonight when the Los Angeles Kings visit the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena. But Gretzky might not get much ice time, since he hadn't been on skates in nearly two weeks until practicing with the team yesterday. "I've got different options," Kings coach Tom Webster said.

Police have released a computer-generated picture of what Celina Mays - the pregnant 12-year-old who disappeared in 1996 - might look like today. Cpt. Gregory Rucker of the Willingboro police said a woman in Midland, Texas, recently saw a picture of Mays on a television talk show and thought her maid resembled the young girl. The maid was always with a 15-month-old child. That lead turned out to be a dead end, but it led Rucker to ask the New Jersey state troopers to produce a more accurate photograph.

Last week I traveled to Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, where a cousin was recuperating from a brain aneurysm. Before seeing her, I needed to drop off an equally sick computer at The Inquirer. Walking down Cherry Street, I turned left on Broad and headed north. It wasn't until I stood virtually beneath the iconic white tower that I remembered The Inquirer didn't live there anymore. And my cousin was the one with the brain trauma. Memories die slowly and painfully. Take the World Series.

By B.G. Kelley We really had little in common growing up, except that we were both Philly kids. I grew up middle-class and comfortable. He grew up in a home for boys. His mother was too sickly to take care of him, and his father had scrammed when he was 4 or 5. The boys' home wasn't the cleanest or quietest place. The food didn't leave a warm, fuzzy feeling in his belly, and there were no Norman Rockwell reproductions hanging on the walls of his tiny room. Nor was there any money, not even for a hamburger and shake at the corner malt shop.

IRENE, South Africa - Clint Dempsey speaks with a hip-hop twang, an accent born in Texas and molded through years of music-rap music, to be precise. Like his native state, he seems a straight shooter, a guy who will answer any question asked - as best he can, anyway. Take Tuesday for example: Dempsey spent half an hour explaining the U.S. team's 1-1 tie with England, his unlikely - and lucky - goal, his ability to produce goals in high-profile situations, and the pressure of Friday's match against Slovenia.
