Rita Chretien Condition Update, 4 p.m., May 7,

May 7, 2011


RE: Rita Chretien Condition Update

TWIN FALLS, Idaho – Rita Chretien, a patient at St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center, remains in fair condition at this hour.

Physicians treating Chretien indicate:
  • She is doing remarkably well given the ordeal she has been through
  • Under the circumstances her spirits are very good.
  • She has tolerated a small meal, and her progress is very positive – the medical team is watching her closely but indicators of her recovery are very good.
The family wishes to express their appreciation to those offering prayers and support for their mother’s full recovery.

Given the stability of Chretien’s medical condition, the next update will be provided after 9 a.m. (mountain time) Sunday, May 8. If there is a significant change in circumstances this plan will be amended.

The family continues to honor Chretien’s wishes to not participate in interviews at this time. They appreciate the media’s respect in honoring this decision.
