Jimmie Lou hospitalized

Posted By on Wed, Apr 12, 2006 at 1:18 PM

Jimmie Lou Fisher was admitted to St. Vincent Infirmary this morning after suffering an apparent stroke. We got the news from Dustin McDaniel. She's chair of his campaign for attorney general.

"She's in good spirits. She's joking with the staff and joking with me and told me to go back work," McDaniel said. "She wants people to know she's lucid and conscious and talking and asked people to keep her in their prayers."

Fisher realized something was amiss while at home in the morning hours. She called her sister who took her to a family doctor who immediately sent her to the emergency room. She has some paralysis in her legs, McDaniel said, but that seems to be improving.
