Britt at home after medical care

U.S. Sen. Katie Britt is recovering at home receiving care for “swelling of a facial nerve,” she announced.

“While with my family in Montgomery this past weekend, I experienced a sudden onset of numbness in my face,” she said in a statement. “I was admitted to Baptist Medical Center South for evaluation. Doctors determined that my symptoms were a result of swelling of a facial nerve, most likely caused by a post-viral infection. A specialist from UAB has subsequently evaluated me on an outpatient basis and concurred with the prognosis and course of treatment.

“My condition is not life-threatening, and recovery could take several weeks. I am grateful for the medical professionals providing excellent care, and my family and I are deeply grateful for your prayers.”
