Loretta Lynn’s Brother Says She’s Talking, Walking By Herself Following Stroke
Loretta Lynn‘s brother, Herman Webb, has offered an update on his country legend sister following her stroke in early May. Although she was “kind of” paralyzed on one side after the stroke, Webb says that Lynn is “doing really good” now.
“She can talk, and Loretta told me that she thought she’s going to be okay,” Webb tells Closer Weekly. He adds, “Her left side was kind of paralyzed, but [she can get around by] herself now, she just has to use a walker.”
Lynn’s stroke occurred on May 4 at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.; following the stroke, the legendary singer-songwriter was admitted to a Nashville hospital, and doctors advised her to stay off the road for a few weeks. Lynn is expected to make a full recovery, and in mid-May, she was moved from the hospital to a rehab facility.
“She seems to be coming along pretty good,” Webb says, noting that making music has been helping Lynn recover, too. “She’s doing really good — that’s the main thing!”
