A spokesman for Lt. Gov. Amy Tuck said she checked into the intensive care unit of St. Dominic-Jackson Memorial Hospital Sunday night and remained hospitalized Monday. Tuck is expected to remain there for a few days.
Tuck had gone to work at the Capitol Sunday for the first time in two weeks after having been hospitalized earlier for mycoplasma pneumonia, sometimes called "walking pneumonia.” Tuck was hospitalized April 20 and released five days later.
After her surprise appearance at the Capitol Sunday, Senate President Pro Tempore Travis Little said Tuck was probably at the Capitol against her doctors' orders.
Little is presiding over the Senate while Tuck is away.
