 JANUARY 19, 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Chief Justice Catherine Kimball continues to progress in her recovery from a stroke she suffered last Sunday, January 10, 2010. After being released from ICU last Wednesday, and spending a short time in a private room, Chief Justice Kimball was discharged from Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge on Friday. She was admitted to a Rehabilitation Hospital to begin post-stroke therapy, and her condition improves daily.


The Kimball family is very thankful for everyone's concern and prayers. In particular, Chief Justice Kimball and her family wish to express their gratitude for the life-saving actions of Acadian Ambulance, and her doctors and their teams at Our Lady of the Lake, especially Dr. Keith Hodge, Dr. Jon Olson, Dr. Dwayne Anderson and Dr. Scott Shuber. They also wish to thank the Our Lady of the Lake team for the excellent care throughout her stay, with special thanks to John Paul Funes with the Our Lady of the Lake Foundation.
