Huntsville Councilman Richard Showers has been hospitalized for the past several days. Councilman Bill Kling says Showers, who represents District 1, did not have a heart attack but does have water on his lungs.
Kling spoke to Showers Monday morning on the telephone and says Showers is in very good spirits. His condition is currently being regulated with medication.
Councilman Mark Russell says he visited Showers last Thursday and says he seemed to be ok but he does not expect him to be at the Council meeting this Thursday. Huntsville Hospital says the Councilman is currently listed in good condition.
