Former Alabama Governor In Hospital

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Former Gov. Guy Hunt is hospitalized in Birmingham and using a respirator. The 75-year-old former governor has battled lung cancer for several years. But his son, Keith Hunt, said his father began to have stomach problems recently and had trouble eating.

Doctors determined it was his gall bladder rather than the cancer. Keith Hunt said Monday his father had gall bladder surgery three weeks ago in Birmingham and has been on a respirator since then. He said his father communicates with family members by nodding his head and squeezing their hands, and they are hopeful he will get off the respirator soon.
