Surrey-White Rock MLA Tracy Redies has been hospitalized with heart failure and hepatitis.
Redies shared the news with friends in a Facebook post Monday evening.
“I am in (Peace Arch Hospital) with congestive heart failure and acute hepatitis brought on by some virus they are trying to find likely picked up while I was in Brazil,” Redies writes.
“Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated – this could be a long road.”
Thanks Keith – this one has got me down for the count. But I will get up again I hope! Thanks for all well wishes
