Loretta Lynn on Rehab after Stroke[advert id=”193667″]
85-year-old Loretta Lynn has entered rehabilitation to continue her recovery from a recent stroke, immediately after her hospitalization in Nashville last May 5th.
Updates were tweeted from her team saying,
“Loretta thanks everyone for their prayers, love, and support. She has moved to rehabilitation and we’re happy to report she is doing great!”
Very few updates were given on Lynn’s condition since the original health episode, which forced the singer to cancel her upcoming tour dates. However, last May 10, Lynn’s sister Crystal Gayle once again thanked her fans for their support and the progress she has had so far.
She said, “We are lucky, in this day and age, to have wonderful doctors and nurses taking great care of her,” she wrote. “Plus, they have to put up with our dramatic and crazy family and friends.”
She is expected to make a full recovery and resume her touring schedule, according to Lynn’s official website.

The announcement for her plans on her new full-length album ‘Wouldn’t It Be Great’ was made last April. The album was co-produced – like Lynn’s 2016 album Full Circle – by John Carter Cash and Lynn’s daughter Patsy Lynn Russell. On the same month, Lynn also had two birthday shows at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. “Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Loretta Lynn date scheduled for July 21st in Dubuque has been canceled,” read a statement on the Facebook page of Dubuque’s Five Flags Center. A similar statement appeared through the social media of the Hoyt Sherman Palace in Des Moines. No further information as to the reason for the cancellations was available.[advert id=”193669″]
