BREAKING NEWS: GOP Senator Admitted to Hospital

Published on

A Republican senator who broke down barriers was hospitalized over the weekend due to facial paralysis.

According to WBMA-LD, the 41-year-old Republican senator of Alabama, Katie Britt, reported being ill over the weekend.

“While with my family in Montgomery this past weekend, I experienced a sudden onset of numbness in my face. I was admitted to Baptist Medical Center South for evaluation. Doctors determined that my symptoms were a result of swelling of a facial nerve, most likely caused by a post-viral infection,” she said in a statement.

She said, referring to the University of Alabama at Birmingham, “A specialist from UAB has subsequently evaluated me on an outpatient basis and concurred with the prognosis and course of treatment.”

“My condition is not life-threatening, and recovery could take several weeks. I am grateful for the medical professionals providing excellent care, and my family and I are deeply grateful for your prayers,” she said.

Currently, the Senate is on recess until after Labor Day.

According to Fox News, Britt is the first woman elected to the Senate from Alabama and the youngest Republican woman ever elected to the Senate. According to The Washington Post, prior to her election, she served as chief of staff to retired Republican Senator Richard Shelby.

Britt has stated her desire to motivate others to achieve success.

According to Al.com, Britt said in an interview last year, “To think that there are little girls and young women across our state who can look at what we have achieved together on this campaign and be inspired — or be instilled with the confidence and hope that they can shoot for the stars and achieve their dreams — is powerful.”

Axios reports that Britt’s memoir, “God Calls Us to Do Hard Things,” will be released on November 7.

According to the promotional page for the book, Britt “shares some candid advice for how to overcome personal challenges, appreciate blessed moments, make our lives more fulfilling, and keep an unshakeable faith in God, family and our country.” CONTINUE READING…
