Loretta Lynn fans can breathe easy as her team has officially passed on an update of her medical status.

The iconic country singer recently suffered from a stroke at her personal residence, forcing her to be hospitalized for the time being. At the time, it was announced that she was expected to make a full recovery and was receiving great care from a handful of doctors after being admitted in Nashville.

Ten days following the medical emergency, Lynn’s team went to social media to let her adoring fans know that she was on the up and up in her recovery time.

“Loretta thanks everyone for their prayers love and support. She has moved to rehabilitation and we’re happy to report she is doing great,” the team wrote via her various social media channels.

Her sister, Crystal Gayle, also sent out a previous shout out to all of the love the family received throughout Lynn’s hospitalization.

“Thank you for all of the prayers and well wishes for Loretta. Keep them coming! We are lucky, in this day and age, to have wonderful doctors and nurses taking great care of her. Plus, they have to put up with our dramatic and crazy family and friends. #PrayersForLoretta Love you! Crystal,” she said.

Lynn just hit a milestone mark during her birthday a couple weeks back, turning the big 8-5. Like the legend she is, Lynn celebrated with close friends at the famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

Although Lynn seems to be doing well during her resting period, doctors still advised that she stay off the road in order to properly recuperate. Rescheduling a few tour dates for later on in the year, she keeps true to her word on plans to continue playing shows across the country once she is fully healed. For more information on those specific dates, supporters can go to her website for more details.
