Former Gov. Edwin Edwards back at home after weekend in hospital
Former governor Edwin W. Edwards is back at home after he was admitted into the hospital over the weekend for non-COVID reasons.
The four-term former governor was admitted into the hospital over the weekend for testing, a source told WBRZ.
He was at Ochsner LSU Health Medical Center in Shreveport "undergoing a battery of tests".
Edwards family issued out a statement saying:
Former Governor Edwin Edwards is undergoing a battery of tests this weekend at Ochsner LSU Health Medical Center in Shreveport for non-Covid related issues. The 93-year-old former governor, Congressman, and US Navy pilot said he’s feeling fine. His wife, Trina Edwards, says her husband is back in for a checkup in Shreveport where he was tested two years ago for respiratory and heart issues. Edwards had heart bypass surgery 24 years ago and annually develops pneumonia. Mrs. Edwards said his doctors have tested him for Covid -the third time in one month- and Mr. Edwards again tested negative. The governor was flown from his home near Gonzales to Shreveport on a plane supplied by Ruston trucking and energy magnate James Davison.
The 93-year-old former governor is in good condition at home with "no corona, no pneumonia, nothing", according to Leo Honeycutt.
