Loretta Lynn was hospitalized after suffering a stroke on May 4, and now fans are being given an update on Lynn’s condition.
After being rushed to hospital in Nashville after suffering a stroke at her home Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, on Thursday evening, a representative for the country music star is claiming that Lynn is still recovering in the hospital.
Giving an update on Loretta’s condition, Sony Music publicist Maria Malta told News Channel 9 that “nothing has changed” in relation to the update given on Lynn’s condition on the evening of May 5.
Malta confirmed that Lynn is still in the hospital as she recovers and referred to the initial statement offered by Loretta’s team that fortunately stated that she is expected to make a full recovery.
It was first confirmed on Lynn’s official website that she had suffered a stroke while at home and was rushed to a nearby hospital, as her team posted a message to fans that revealed Loretta “is currently under medical care and is responsive and expected to make a full recovery.”
The message also confirmed that Lynn would be canceling any and all upcoming shows as a result of her stroke and subsequent hospitalization because that the 85-year-old country music legend had been advised by her doctors “to stay off the road while she is recuperating.”
“Regrettably, upcoming scheduled shows will be postponed,” the statement said.
