    Republican Senator Rushed to Hospital, Faces Weeks of Recovery

    Published on

    A forward-thinking Republican lawmaker was hospitalized over the weekend after developing facial paralysis.

    According to WBMA-LD, 41-year-old Alabama Republican Senator Katie Britt claimed to have become unwell 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.

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

    “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.

    The Senate is currently on recess until after Labor Day.

    Britt is the youngest Republican woman ever elected to the Senate and the first woman from Alabama to be elected to the Senate, according to Fox News. According to The Washington Post, she previously served as the chief of staff for the departed Republican senator Richard Shelby.

    Britt has expressed a desire to inspire others to attain success.

    “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,” Britt said in an interview last year, according to

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

    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,” according to the book’s promotional page.

    The announcement for the book said Britt “has tackled a lot that life’s thrown at her. From working in her parent’s hardware store, to finding her path at the University of Alabama and marrying the captain of the football team, to an extremely close call with a tornado that destroyed her house while she held her baby in her arms, to her upstart campaign for Senate, Britt has overcome setbacks, defied expectations and shocked the political establishment.”

    The book “offers the hard-earned lessons and common-sense advice that Britt gained from her experience — and it’s the kind of stuff many young folks need to hear,” the announcement said. CONTINUE READING…
