Sen. Kerry Roberts continues to remain hospitalized where he is being treated for a subarachnoid hemorrhage he experienced on Friday, Oct. 9.
According to Senate Republican Press Secretary Darlene Schlicher, Roberts
remains in the Neuro Intensive Care Unit and continues to experience vasospasms, placing him at risk for a stroke and requiring him to be under careful monitoring.
"Wednesday marked the first day of significant decline in vasospasms,” Schlicher said in a press release Friday. “With further improvement, he is expected to be released as early as next week.
“His medical team continues to anticipate a full and complete recovery and his recovery timeline remains within expectations for a brain hemorrhage.”
Roberts also included a message in the release to those who had been asking about his condition.
"I am very thankful for all of the prayers, calls, cards, and texts from those who have expressed their concerns,” he said. “Due to the severity of headaches, I have not been able to take phone calls, text messages, and emails, except to communicate with family members who are not able to visit because of COVID-19 protocols.
“I have been touched by so many kind messages and look forward to responding soon."
