Lieutenant Governor's Condition Reported as "Grave"

JULY 11, 2006 - Posted at 7:28 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Lieutenant Governor Win Rockefeller is in grave condition at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences following a second unsuccessful bone marrow transplant, according to the Web site of the weekly Arkansas Times.

In a posting by editor Max Brantley on the site's "Arkansas Blog" yesterday, the Times cited multiple sources for its report and said pneumonia has complicated Rockefeller's condition.  When told of the Times' report, Rockefeller spokesman Steve Brawner said he wouldn't release specific information about Rockefeller's condition out of respect for his privacy and that of his family.

UAMS spokeswoman Leslie Taylor said Rockefeller's name wasn't listed among hospital patients.

The 57-year-old Rockefeller returned home to Arkansas on Saturday after a second bone marrow transplant for a life-threatening blood disorder failed to produce encouraging results.

The son of the late Governor Winthrop Rockefeller, Win Rockefeller cut short his plans last summer to campaign for the Republican nomination for governor, saying he had been diagnosed with myeloproliferative disorder.

The lieutenant governor received a bone marrow transplant last October through the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and a second transplant March 29 after the first operation was unsuccessful.
