Falwell 'makes progress' and takes a call from Karl Rove
We report, you decide whether he’s off the death watch list.(AP):
The Rev. Jerry Falwell, hospitalized in serious condition, said he is on the mend after a health crisis in which he stopped breathing and had to be resuscitated earlier this week…. “I’m making progress,” the 71-year-old Moral Majority founder said in an interview with The News & Advance of Lynchburg. “I’ll be in here for a few days.”
…Falwell also took a call from White House chief political adviser Karl Rove, who spoke at the May 2004 commencement of Falwell’s Liberty University.
Family members told doctors Falwell had been unconscious from five to seven minutes before he arrived at the hospital emergency room in “respiratory arrest.” Moore said there is no evidence of neurological damage.
