Baxley out of hospital

Posted by: John Shryock - bio | email

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WSFA) - Lucy Baxley is out of the hospital after suffering a nasty fall that broke her hip last week.

The former lt. governor underwent a successful hip surgery and is now undergoing a vigorous rehabilitation regimen.

Baxley, who suffered a stroke shortly after losing a bid to be governor in 2006, hasn't let her health hold her back.

She mounted a political comeback in 2008 to become president of the Alabama Public Service Commission.
