Gov. Butch Otter is just suffering from a flu bug, first lady Lori Otter said in a statement this evening, and should be heading home from the hospital tomorrow. Here’s her statement:
“The Governor and I want to express our thanks to all the folks who have sent us their kind thoughts and well wishes. As many hands as we shake, it was just a matter of time before he picked up a bug. He ran a high fever for a few days and became severely dehydrated, so he has been on fluids and antibiotics. He is now feeling better and we look forward to him heading home tomorrow.”
