NASHVILLE, Tennessee (October 23, 2020) β€” Many of you have asked for an update regarding Senator Kerry Roberts (R - Springfield) related to the subarachnoid hemorrhage he experienced on Friday, October 9th.

Senator 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. With further declines, 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.

Sen. Roberts said, "I am very thankful for all of the prayers, calls, cards, and texts from those who have expressed their concerns. 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."

We will continue further updates as any changes occur.
