Loretta Lynn is resting comfortably after falling and breaking her hip, her sister, Crystal Gayle, has revealed.
In a tweet posted Monday morning (Jan. 8), a day ahead of Gayle’s birthday, the “Don’t Make My Brown Eyes Blue” singer asked for “love and prayers” as Loretta recovers. “My birthday wish is for everyone to send love and prayers to my sister, Loretta Lynn, who fell and broke her hip last week,” she shared. While Gayle didn’t reveal any specific details regarding the 85-year-old’s fall, she said that Lynn is “in good spirits and is doing as well as can be expected with this type of injury.”
Lynn has spent much of the past year out of the spotlight after suffering from a stroke in May of 2017. During her recovery, she cancelled her tour and the release of her new album, Wouldn’t It Be Great, to concentrate on her rehabilitation. “I am getting stronger every day and can’t wait to get back out there with all of you. I’m just letting everybody know that Willie ain’t dead yet and neither am I, and I can’t wait to see all of you on the road,” she told fans at the time.
She concluded her year with a surprise appearance at Alan Jackson’s Country Music Hall of Fame induction in October. The moment marked her second public appearance after the stroke. She previously performed on her ranch as part of the Tennessee Motorcycle and Music Revival.
Author…Sam Adriance: My grandmother Gaia fell at Emily’s and my wedding rehearsal dinner. The X-ray showed Gaia’s pelvis was cracked, but she wouldn’t require surgery, just a stay in rehab for a while.
Gaia is one of the most amazing women I have ever met. She never liked receiving help, always cherishing her independence and freedom. She and my Dad fought every summer as he tried to hold her arm when she walked along treacherous Maine beaches. So how would she cope now?
You can imagine my surprise when I saw her one month later with her new walker and letting my dad guide her, but smiling as brightly as ever. She told me that her rehab was going well, and she looked better than I had anticipated. “I have learned so much,” she said. “Your father and I have fought these last few weeks. But I’m staring to learn that I can’t do everything myself anymore, and I’m letting him take over for me. And you know what? The more I let him take over and trust him, the more free I feel.”
….I know dear Lord, that we are only free when we submit ourselves to something higher- to YOU. Sam Adriance
